Trying Wolf & Whistle

Wolf & Whistle are a brand that are new to me, so when they got in touch asking if I'd like to try some of their plus size range I was excited to give them a go. They are newer to the plus size market, and they go up to a size 26, which is more than a lot of brands have been doing for years. A bit of chatting with their team also told me that they are hoping to expand their size range, so fingers crossed! Their spring range is a floral pastel dream, very unlike my usual style, but absolutely beautiful. I opted to try out two of the tops!


First up, the peach frill top*, which retails for £30. It's a lovely pale peachy colour, and the material is nice and soft, is a little sheer. You need a flesh coloured bra under this one for sure, with smooth cups only, as the material shows up every detail in whatever is underneath it. The frill down the front is a cute touch, and the back features a gold zip running all the way down the top.


I got my usual size in this, and it did fit a little awkwardly. I could have done with a bit more space on the waist and the bust area. I'm not very busty so this isn't a problem I usually have. The arm holes are a good size which can often be a problem in newer brands who aren't allowing for plus size arms. With a little work, this could have been perfect, but it just wasn't quite there.


This is the pink + grey floral camisole* and it retails for £22. This is a great silky material, almost like the fanciest pajamas you've ever owned. It's very reminiscent of something from the nineties, the floral pattern and the hints of nineties tie in with two key trends for spring. It's a spaghetti style top with a cross over at the back, and the pattern and colours are so damn pretty.


I could have done with a little more room on the bottom of the top as it's supposed to be a loose fit, and maybe a little more length in the straps. I am 5ft 11, so I tend to expect a bit of an issue with strap lengths on tops like this so it's a fairly standard problem I have. I think this will be a gorgeous top for summer holidays, and if you are of the no-bra persuasion like I am, you can totally get away without one. The back of this is my favourite as the cross over is adorable!

Despite the fit issues, the quality of these tops is obvious. Wolf & Whistle are a newer brand to the plus size market, so over time these issues will hopefully work themselves out. I'd recommend sizing up if possible for now.

Much love,

  1. I would never have guessed you are 5ft 11" and as someone of a similar height, I find people often don't consider the length of tops!

    1. Haha yeah, apparently I photograph short, people often think I'm about 5ft! It's something I always mention because I know how hard it is to find a good length

  5. These are both so pretty. I've been really impressed with the sizing on the dress I received - even around the boobs and shoulders which are my problem areas when it comes to clothes fitting. I'm sorry these didn't fit quite right for you but both look absolutely amazing on you!

    1. I think all the dresses seemed to have fit people really well in the reviews I've seen, maybe I'm just a more awkward shape haha! Thank you honey xxx
