I’m a size 22 and 5ft 4 – I tried Topshop’s curve range, here’s my honest thoughts on how it looked on my body | The Sun

FINDING clothes that not only fit comfortably but look good too can be very hard.

Particularly for those that are plus-size, it seems as though there are not as many glamorous options out there for bigger women.

But one plus-size fashionista, Isobel Greenfield, has taken to TikTok, where she has 75.9k followers and 475.3k likes, to share her honest thoughts on the new Topshop curve range, that is available to buy on Asos.

Isobel is a size 22 and is 5ft 4 and describes herself as a ‘fashion loving fat girl’.

The fashion-loving young woman recently posted a clip to the video sharing platform, where she tried on two skirts from Topshop’s new plus-size range.

The fashion fan uploaded her clip with the caption ‘Plus-size try on haul. So in the last week Topshop has finally started including plus size. Is it too little too late?’.

She said: “I am back with an Asos haul, I don’t know if you’ve noticed some new things on Asos but Topshop have started doing plus-size, only like nine years too late.

“I haven't been in Topshop since I was like 16 so I ordered a few things and I will try them on.

“I literally just went onto Asos, checked the plus-size ‘new in’ and I saw Topshop Curve – I was like ‘What? Am I imagining that?’.

“But it’s real, so I’ve ordered two things from Topshop Curve.

“Now I used to be obsessed with Topshop when I could actually fit in there.

“The new things on Asos, obviously it’s going to be updated as it’s brand new, but a lot of it was coats, but there were two skirts.

“The first item I’ve ordered is not brand new to Topshop, but this skirt was very expensive compared to other skirts, it was £38”.

We then see Isobel try on the first skirt – a satin, khaki midi skirt.

She continued: “This is the fit of the skirt, it’s got a lot of stretch in it, I actually think it’s very roomy for a size 22.

“I’m a [size] 22 and 5 foot 4 and I’m very surprised with the room”.

Following this, Isobel tries on the next skirt, a similar style, but this time a more colourful, mesh number.

She added: “Now here’s the next skirt – it’s called Topshop Curve Ruched Mesh Printed Mini Dress in green and blue and this is a size 22.

“I would say both pieces are roomy for a 22 so that’s good”.

Isobel then added: “I am going to be trying on a lot more Topshop things as they get lots more things on the website.

“Two skirts is pretty basic for now but I’m hoping that we will get the same nice pieces that the straight size section gets.

“They owe us a lot as they are very late to the game”.

Isobel’s video has clearly impressed many, as it has very quickly racked up 48.4k views.

It has 2,593 likes, 90 comments and 23 shares.
