Scarlett & Jo Powerfit Dresses at Evans

Recently, Scarlett & Jo launched their brand new Powerfit dresses on the Evans website and I was lucky enough to see them in person at Plus North in Manchester last weekend.   If you've never heard of the Powerfit dresses before, they are based on the illusion style dress with black panels down the edges and a contrasting colour or pattern down the middle.  These dresses give the illusion of a smaller frame and are very on trend at the moment.

The difference between other illusion dresses and the Powerfit Dresses by Scarlett & Jo are that many of their designs include a built in mesh lining that gives support and acts as shapewear.  Personally, I probably would wear more shapewear underneath the dresses because I like a really firm look to hold in my lumps and bumps.  The dresses come in a number of gorgeous colours, such as purple, red, blue, leopard print and lace panelled.  My favourite is the red one and I think that they would suit power dressing for work or equally be beautiful for an evening occasion.

Scarlett & Jo Claret Red Powerfit Dress, Evans, £45.00

Scarlett & Jo Leopard Print Powerfit Dress, Evans, £40.00

Scarlett & Jo Blueberry Powerfit Dress, Evans, £45.00

The prices for these dresses are very reasonable from £40 for the ones without the added mesh panels and £45 for the colours that includes it.  From looking at how well made the Scarlett & Jo dresses are (including the black velvet style one I was sent to review) this is bang on for affordability versus quality.  I would spend the extra £5 for the mesh panel unless I really wanted the leopard print version!

Recently, a couple of lucky bloggers (George - Fuller Figure, Fuller Bust and Callie - From the Corners of the Curve) took part in a photoshoot to show off these dresses on real women and the results were amazing.  Both girls look simply stunning in their Powerfit dresses as you will see below...


These gorgeous dresses come in UK sizes 14 to 26.  Isn't it lovely when we can buy decent, beautiful clothing on the high street!

I am very excited about this new launch and after seeing the catwalk show of Scarlett & Jo's new collection, us plus sized girls are in for some gorgeous clothes that will be hitting selected Evans stores and the website very soon!  Check out the Evans website for more of the Scarlett & Jo range!
