Celuu are a great womenswear brand who are looking to bring ‘effortless elegance’ to the size 12-22 clothing market. Followers will know that I am a new(ish) mummy who – regardless of my efforts! – is still unfortunately carrying a little left over baby weight which means I tend to be neglected when it comes to clothes. So, when the folks from Celuu contact me about testing a product from their range, I jumped at the chance. Afterall, us mummies need treated too from time to time.
After taking a look through their website – which is very nicely laid out and easy to navigate – I settled on a new dress. I love dresses and wanted something that was a little bit special to wear over the summer. I settled on their Grace Palm Print Maxi Dress, as I always think a good maxi dress is easy to dress up or down for both night and day wear.
First of all on arrival, I was impressed by how well packaged the dress was. It gave a really lovely shopping experience complete with it’s own little bag, regardless of the fact it was via mail order.
Then I saw the dress itself. The website did not do it justice as it is beautifully made in the most stunning fabric. Gone are my thoughts of wandering down the beach in this dress as this would be a fantasic fit for a summer wedding!
I usually take a UK size 16 at the moment (thought I’m working on it!) but after checking out the Celuu size guide I decided to order a size up just to be safe and I’m glad I did as it ended up a nice fit across the body as I hate things to be too tight and uncomfortable when I sit down. That is until I tried to walk……I really should have considered the fact that I’m 5ft 3 before ordering a maxi dress as unfortunately it is too long for me. Usually I can still get away with it as long as I wear heels but unfortunately not this time. Devastated!
That being said I can’t get away from the fact that this really is a beautiful dress!
This dress is currently retailing at £79 on the Celuu website and I have to say that if you were looking for something a little bit special for a wedding or even over the summer then this would be worth every penny.
