Perusing the 'Curves' section on New Look. I found this.
what the hell?!

Germgirl Mon 29-May-17 18:50:57

Oh ffs.

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Mon 29-May-17 18:52:46

Fuck me, that is ugly.

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Mon 29-May-17 18:52:55

Grim. In any size!

Craycr4y Mon 29-May-17 18:54:17

I know I complain that plus size ranges lack personality but that is a horror!

Saucery Mon 29-May-17 18:55:06

The t shirt has a nice cut to it, wtf is the nightie doing stuck on top?

QueenMortificado Mon 29-May-17 18:55:25

To be fair, such monstrosities exist in sizes 8-16 so the hideousness isn't restricted to plus sizes

I must admit, saw a lot of bollocks d that ilk in h&m size 8's today too!

New look plus size has always been a bit icky, apart from the jeans and the wide fit shoes. So much synthetic fabric!

HughLauriesStubble Mon 29-May-17 18:58:36

Omg can't decide if it's worse than the pink monstrosity or not shock

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Mon 29-May-17 18:58:39

T shirt meets 1970's Baby Doll polyester nightie? Say what now?

Germgirl Mon 29-May-17 19:47:24

It's splendid isn't it? smile

FadedRed Mon 29-May-17 19:53:21

Has the model put it on inside out?

BlessYourCottonSocks Mon 29-May-17 19:55:27

How super! That basically says, 'you may wish to wear a see through baby doll nightie...but trust me, my dear, you are so unattractive naked you are only allowed to wear one provided you have a large white Florida T shirt underneath it'.

I think we can all agree that's the way we want clothes to make us feel grin

I think the idea is to distract other people with the hideousness of the top and hope that they don't notice that the wearer is not a size 12.

This is inspired ... quite frankly I wouldn't notice if the wearer had two heads, one of which was wearing a top hat

misskelly Mon 29-May-17 20:00:06

To be fare to New Look, I was in there yesterday and most things were bloody hideous not just the curve stuff.

DeadGood Mon 29-May-17 20:51:28

Um... wow.

That model is stunning though.

KatyS36 Mon 29-May-17 20:58:25

I could possibly think of occasions where I might be able to wear the pink dress. That however.......

Whiskwarrior Mon 29-May-17 21:01:17

Well...that kind of type is popping up all over, not just in plus ranges. It's awful either way.

And New Look's plus range, as others have pointed out, is designed by people who don't actually give a shit about plus sized people looking or feeling decent. The materials they use. Ye gads!

monkeyfacegrace Mon 29-May-17 21:01:47

You think the model is stunning?! Jeez just goes to show there's someone for everyone grin

BlessYourCottonSocks Mon 29-May-17 21:29:43

I didn't realise you were supposed to wear it with jeans! Crikey...not sure if that makes it better or worse. I thought it was night attire.

NoSquirrels Mon 29-May-17 21:31:31

Is it wrong that made me LOL? The model seems so disgusted by it, the idea that there were extra pictures to scroll through made me chuckle.

Grim in any size, quite frankly!

PinkSquash Mon 29-May-17 21:33:11

The seam down the spine on the nightie isn't straight at all and it bugs me. It's utterly revolting

NoSquirrels Mon 29-May-17 21:33:14

And now have read Bless comment and am LOL more! grin
