At least one member of the Fashion Bust team was jumping around in delight this morning about the elegant new DD plus clothing range from Figleaves’ label Midnight Grace.
If any of you DD plus ladies have ever experienced the frustration of finding a top you love only to try it on and discover it just wasn’t made to accommodate fuller busts, you’ll know how she feels. It’s just that sense of frustration that the new clothing line from Midnight Grace by Figleaves aims to eliminate with a range of timeless, chic styles that are designed specifically to flatter larger cup sizes.
The collection focuses on classic, feminine shapes such as wrap-around dresses and gathered necklines, using stretch fabrics that drape and flatter in all the right places, whatever your shape. It’s all about easy-to-wear elegance, and our favourite style has to be the pretty Iris Knot Front Dress (£45, pictured) – effortlessly stylish!
But the collection is about more than just style. As a lingerie and swimwear retailer, fit is very important to Figleaves, and the retailer’s team of designers has worked hard to create a collection that allows women to buy according to their dress size without having to worry about whether the garment will fit their bust – so no more need to buy a larger size just in case!
‘Our technical manager is a size 36F and therefore a DD customer, and she knows exactly what is required,’ Figleaves told Fashion Bust. ‘Each style has been painstakingly fitted on a range of models, including a size 18 with a G cup bust.’
This means there are no special sizing charts for the collection. Just use the standard Figleaves women’s clothing size chart to find your waist and hip size and shop with the confidence that the bust will fit!
The new Midnight Grace collection is sized from 8-22 and prices range from £35 for tops to £45 for dresses. Some styles are available now on Figleaves.com and additional styles are launching on 7 October. You can view some of our favourite pieces in the gallery below.
