Can Curvy Girls Shop at Revolve?

The models at Revolve remind me a bit of VS Angels – all impossibly long, slim, gleaming limbs and 0% body fat. I’ve long admired the clothes they model, but would anything actually fit me? In a moment of sale weakness, I caved and splurged … so let’s find out.
Stats: 5’8” and size US14

The crop top is $35 (reduced from $88) and the skirt is $79 (reduced from $178) – both are currently available in sizes XXS – XL. Both Final Sale.
One of the reasons I took the risk on final sale was because I saw the skirt had an elasticized waist. It actually fits easily, I pulled it on with no issues. The skirt is lovely and long, which I appreciate.
The top is similarly sized – there is plenty of room (I’m a 38C). I like how the back is not so cropped and in fact shows no skin. The front is just cropped enough to show a line of tummy. Perfect.
This whole set (I’m a sucker for a matching skirt set) is surprisingly comfortable and easy-wearing. The print and colors are pretty. Do I think it’s worth full price? No. I would definitely only buy on sale from this brand. The material feels pretty cheap and the design isn’t that amazing. Compared to, say, skirt sets that I’ve bought (on sale!) from Lilly Pulitzer, which is a similar price point, the quality seems inferior.

This dress is $46 (reduced from $198) and is available in sizes XXS – L (XL is now out of stock). Also Final Sale. This dress also fit easily and is a pretty seersucker fabric. The slit-open bodice makes wearing a bra impossible, so I’ll wear it with my sticky breast petals, which came in so handy this last summer. I love the midi length.
I can’t quite believe this was $200 full price, but I’m pleased with it for $35 (I got an extra 20% off final sale, which annoyingly didn’t apply to the Tularosa set).

So there we go. I’m pleased to report that, for these brands at least, and with elasticized waists, it is possible for those not blessed with gazelle-like proportions to shop at Revolve! Happy shopping, curvy friends!
