Curvy Dress Review: The Tailored Dress from Wolf and Whistle

Oriental Blossom Dress by Whistle and Wolf

If you’re into lingerie, then you’ll recognized the Playful Promises brand name. What most people don’t know is that Playful Promises has a clothing line as well! Whistle and Wolf uses eye-catching digital prints to create clothing that is both classic and trendy. I’ve heard that their sizing runs generously, so I went ahead and picked up two of their tailored dresses in their latest sale. This is a continuity style for Whistle and Wolf, so if it works for you then you’ll have lots of prints and patterns to choose from.

I picked up both dresses in a UK size 16, which roughly translates to a US 14. This is the largest size that Whistle and Wolf makes, so I was a little unsure whether it would actually fit or not. When my package showed up two weeks later, I was incredibly surprised by how perfect the fit was.

While neither of these are my “usual” style, I really like the way they look and feel. Each dress is made of a stretch satin and fully lined with more stretch fabric. The waist panel is extremely structured, like a built in cummerbund. It means these dresses mould well to your curves where they need to, but still create a nice defined silhouette due to the belt-like waist panel.

I love a great floral print, so these prints are just perfect for me. They’ll be multi-seasonal, work perfectly with cardigans and tights and have a whole range of colors to use for accent colors. While I adore the pink and purple print, the navy blue and red floral one may be one of the best prints I’ve seen in a long time. My only advice is to ignore the size charts: I’m several inches over the maximum measurements shown on the charts and these dresses fit just fine.

On sale, both of these dresses came to around $50, which is a steal for the look and quality. Dresses usually retail for around $85, which I think is on par for the quality, tailoring and materials.

What do you think of Whistle and Wolf? Have you tried them yet?
