Review: Excite Clothing

Happy August everyone! I'm going to kick off the month with a review piece for clothing company Excite. If you haven't heard of Excite before they are a great online retailer who stock straight size range, a kids range and a plus size range.

They first came to my attention when we were looking for sponsors for a Plus North. One of the things that struck me when I first visited their website was that the plus size range wasn't hidden away on the site, hard to find or an after thought, it was there pride of place, slap bang right in the centre of the front page... GREAT!

The lovely Claire, Director of the company was kind enough to send me this great bird print shift zip dress to try out. We all know I'm a complete sucker for bird print, so when this little beauty turned up, I was super excited! I did originally request the 22, but unfortunately it was too small across my bust so I went for the 24... Perfect fit!!

I teamed mine with jeans for a more casual look, but this would equally look great with tights or leggings and some cute pumps or high heels.

I love the zip detailing to the front and the drape pockets, and how great it looks on. Although there is no stretch to the material, I found this dress to be comfortable whilst running errands in town, playing with my daughter and even running the Hoover round!

Excites plus range has a great mix of evening wear and day time casual ranging in sizes 16-26 with some items running right up to 32. I think what I like most about the range is its vibrancy, lots of great colours and shapes and of course the great price point. Some of my other favourites include:

  6. I have 3 of their dresses including the dip hem one you've posted. I really want the new dip hem dress that's on the website but i've spent far too much since Plus North so I can't buy it just yet :(

  8. I love Excite so much, I got the same dress but the cream one, and sadly had to swap it since it was so tight on my bust :/ the curse of big boobs. And their customer services is amazing!
