Trying Boohoo Plus

By Hollysbeautybox @hollysbeautybox
As a lot of you might know (I've gone on about it enough on Twitter) I am off on holiday to Florida soon so naturally, your girl was on the lookout for some new wardrobe essentials.
Trying Boohoo Plus
I was really luckily gifted some pieces from Boohoo's plus size collection and I wanted to let you know what I chose, how I found the website and how I'll be wearing the pieces.
So first off, As much as I am proudly plus size, I'm human and get a bit body conscious especially when I'm out of my comfort zone. For me, that means covering up the tops of my arms and my legs with the exception of a bit of 'peekaboo' detailing.
I was able to narrow my search down to sleeve length, skirt length and styles on the Boohoo website which saved me time going through things that weren't suitable for me.
When I set out looking for items, the ideal pieces were to include cold shoulder detailing, a maxi of some sort and wide legged trousers, so I was being really fussy on what I picked.
In the end I opted for:
Boohoo Plus Jodie Button Front Maxi Skirt*
This is a thin linen & jersey type material which has a button front. I opted for the black skirt because adding color to the top & with accessories would be easier. This has a slit up the front which comes just above the knee (meaning any anti chafing shorts worn underneath won't be seen!) This is fitted enough to be smart but loose enough not to be uncomfortable which for me is ideal.
This costs £15 and is available in sizes 16-24*.
Boohoo Plus Eve Drape Sleeve Floral Wide Leg Jumpsuit*
AHHH!!! your girl went off the scale with taking risks here. I normally never ever wear jumpsuits (someone once asked me if I was wearing a 'fat girl onesie' and it put me off) but in the name of risk taking, I thought I'd give this a whirl and I'm so glad I did.
This has cold shoulder detailing (yeeesss!) which means I can hide the part of my arms I'm least enthralled by. This also gathers at the waist before dropping into a wide leg which feels slouchy and comfortable at the same time as being bang on trend.  This has a ditsy floral print too which I am loving and I couldn't be more pleased with the piece as a whole
This costs £28 and is available in sizes 16-24*
Boohoo Plus Jennie Short Sleeved Wrap Tie Waist Top*
Wrap tops are my BFF's. you can wear them with skirts, trousers, jeans, shorts the works! This top is available in three colours - black, white & red. I opted for the White because again, I figured adding accessories with a pop of color might look cute. For me, a wrap top is ideal for curvy girls because it means you can tighten or loosen the belt to suit your frame. I for example, have wide shoulders, a  medium sized bust and a short waist. I like something to synch in at the waist and not be too baggy at the bust which is why this top is ideal for me.
This costs £15 and is available in sizes 16-24*
Eh, did any of you lot know that Boohoo are doing their own beauty range? me neither! I chose a couple of bits to take away with me and test out.
Boohoo 3 Shade Highlighter Palette - £6*
This has three shades in it and comes packaged in gold with a mirror in the lid. I'm yet to try it out but I'll be sure to let you know my thoughts when I'm back from Florida.
Boohoo Illuminating Primer - £6*
I'm intrigued by this. Primer's for me are supposed to keep my base in place but this one is illuminating so I'd be interested to see if this makes my face shimmery or if it leaves an oily residue. Again, I'll let you know upon my return!
Have you tried the Boohoo Beauty range? let me know what you'd recommend! It's so affordable!
So there we have a bit of holiday shopping where I'm trying Boohoo plus. I'm excited to go away into the sunshine so I'll be sure to take lots of pics while I'm away to share when I'm back to make you all jealous muwahahahha!
