I was looking at the Daily Mail “sidebar of shame” this morning (I know, terrible habit) and noticed Claire Richards from the band Steps has released a ‘plus size’ collection with Fashion World. The dress she was wearing is a great repliKate for Kate’s Erdem lace dress:
Obviously it isn’t the perfect style – the repliKate dress has a v-neckline. Of course, as this is a plus size range, women with a larger bust will perhaps appreciate the difference in cut.
The similarity of the two dresses hasn’t escaped Fashion World, who write in the description that with this dress “you’ll look like royalty!” haha!
Here’s how the company describes the dress:
Crafted from a flattering and comfy stretch lace and satin-esque fabric, this stunning dress is sure to turn heads at your next special event. Cut in a midi length with three-quarter-length sleeves and a lace waistband, this dress has been specially designed to flatter and fit in all the right places. With luxe navy lace over aqua lining and featuring a soft velvet trim, you’ll look like royalty!
Sits at high calf.
70% Rayon, 20% Polyamide, 10% Elastane. Lining: 95% Viscose, 5% Elastane.
Product available in sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32
Available in: Navy
In her interview with The Daily Mail, Claire comments that she’s designed these dresses especially for women with “boobs and bums”. At UK size 14 I’m also in the plus size range, and I think a couple of Claire’s dresses would really suit me – especially the ‘Hollywood style’ prom dress with mesh sleeves, I adore the shape and the colours of that.
