267. (Maurices Review)

So, this is a really long-overdue review on one of Maurice's clothing. Maurice's is an American clothing company that specializes in women's clothing and luckily they offer some plus size clothing too, up to a size 24 and 4X. They kindly sent me this dress to review, you may have seen it on my USA post a few entries back. However, the pictures weren't adequate enough for me to do a review, thus I am doing so now.

Onto the review!

Size: The dress fits true to size. I ordered the size 20 equivalent on the size chart and it fits like a dream. Not too tight or too loose. With the elastic waistband it can easily accommodate up to a size 24.

Quality: The fabric is really good quality. It is thick, and not flimsy at all. The fabric itself has stretch and it a jersey-like material, and on the inside there's a soft polyester lining.

Overall: It's very trendy and I'm glad I got to try the hi-low trend. I've gotten many compliments on this dress and it's so easy to wear, and so comfortable! The shipping was very fast and prompt as well.

Unfortunately, this dress is sold out. However, there are similar styles such as this dress and this dress. I would definitely look to Maurices for trendy plus size clothing. There's clothing appropriate for business casual work too, which is a plus for me as I get higher in my academic career I can't go dressing like I usually do.

Until next time,



  1. Awesome dress! I love the stripes, and the hi-low hem shows off your killer stems. :)

  2. I love this dress it's so great on you. I'm really loving the dipped hem trend xx

  3. You look fab! Lovee.

  4. Love the dress, looks so classy. Also love the shoes, I´ve been looking for a pair like this the whole summer!


  5. you are healthy but deserve for fashion really and look inspirations for style

  6. Cute! I like the little bow at the chest. I did buy into the hi/low trend by getting a dress at Target. I don't like the way it sits on me, though (too lumpy looking) This kind of dress looks like it would have been a much better option, it flows so pretty!

  7. I'm loving the dress! So cute and it could be dressed up or down. I've never heard of this company - I'll have to check it out. Also, I'm loving the adorable picture of Coco :)

  8. What a fun dress! I'm always a fan of bold stripes. Also, I really love the pop of red you added with the shoes.

    I go to Maurices once in a while (seeing as there is one in my town). Some of my favorite closet staples come from there. Great place!
