Jeans/tops/dresses/ - Everything you could possible want.

With that nice simple Mango relaxed style.

I love it!

www.mango.com - click Curve and the range is called Violetta.

And the best bit?

The models who are wearing them are the real clothes size - so I guess a 14 and above. No pinning that I can see of the clothes.

It starts from a size 12 I believe? I find that a bit troubling. But I agree it's nice to see a more youthful brand catering for above a size 14.

From one perspective calling size 12 "plus size" might be troubling.

From another perspective, people who are size 12 get to choose from both ranges and pick the clothes that suit their taste and shape the best.

Just like people with size 4 feet can wear children's shoes if they like and pay no VAT (and some of them are nice!)

That's ugliest range of clothing I've ever seen. Most of those cloths fit like the model is wearing a potato sack! In fact most of it looks like maternity wear from the 90's.

I have to agree. Its like sacks made from cheap material and tied in middle. Sorry.

I looked and thought good god I need to lose weight if I look like that in my clothes (size 14)

LaurieFairyCake Sat 01-Feb-14 16:54:47

Ok, in a whole shop of clothes I might only find one or two things that look good - at least there is a choice here.

I like 3 dresses, one silk blouse, 2 layering tops, 2 pairs of jeans (that never happens), 2 cardigans.

Some of it is a bit sack like this one but some are nice

What size would the model be?

AnythingNotEverything Sat 01-Feb-14 17:01:09

I think they need to sack the stylist. Some of those clothes might actually be lovely but it all looks pretty rubbish on the model.

I hope they have some of it in store ...

And they have plus size jewellery - interesting idea.

According to woman and home this month it's online only

HRHwheezing Sat 01-Feb-14 17:09:36

Bloody expensive though....

HaymitchAbarnathy Sat 01-Feb-14 17:13:20

That model has an air of being thoroughly depressed and no wonder.

not a single thing I would wear, yes all a bit sack of spuds tied in the middle sadly.

I like a few items . And yes,great to see High Street Fashion in bigger sizes.

MrsCakesPremonition Sun 02-Feb-14 19:34:27

The tops all look like they are cut short. I need them to sit at my hips or below otherwise it's like having a set of arrows saying "oh yeah, take a look at the belly". They also look boxy - and there is nothing less flattering than a short square top - guaranteed to make it look like you don't have a waist.

Perhaps it's just because they all seem to be half tucked in, making it hard to see the length.

mercibucket Sun 02-Feb-14 19:55:09

wow those clothes are diet inspiring

HanSolo Sun 02-Feb-14 22:02:00

Mango is really annoying- I am a 10/12, and would be a L in most of their things... if they weren't cut for people 6 feet tall that is hmm

YouseewhathappensLarry Sun 02-Feb-14 23:54:15

I used to work for Mango and was made to feel like a fat bastard because I needed a size 12 uniform.

OneLittleLady Mon 03-Feb-14 00:05:23

I only looked at the first page of clothes but didn't see a single thing I liked and/or would actually wear. Either the styling is crap or the tops look too short in the body even for me and I'm all of 4' 11''! I don't want my mum tum on display to all who pass me, I'd like to wear things that cover but flatter thanks. Also, size 12, TWELVE, is considered plus size? hmm

themessyapron Mon 03-Feb-14 00:37:43

Fed up of plus size skirts and dresses all being cut above the knee. Would love to see some stuff cut just below the knee.

DolomitesDonkey Mon 03-Feb-14 05:46:57

Fuck it. I went to sneer, but now I need the peccoro leather jacket and the buckle printed dress. The cardis and tops are hideous though - on a par with "tents at asos".

Anyone know how mango sizes? Im t&a, mostly a.

madammecholet Mon 03-Feb-14 12:41:08

whats with all the UGLY bootcut jeans?? Nothing structured which would flatter your shape at all.. (except Bicolor dress)... urgh.

LittleBabyPigsus Mon 03-Feb-14 15:33:26

themessyapron M&S have some plus size stuff that comes below the knee.

Personally I prefer skirts/dresses cut above the knee and don't mind things being unstructured or cut short (I don't give a shit about clothes being 'flattering' or not because it's bollocks designed to make women hide 'unacceptable' bits of their bodies, when in reality all parts of all bodies are acceptable). However this range is just...boring.
