here Personally me wearing any of these outfits before i've slimmed to a size 4 is never going to happen.

I'm definately the right size of person for evans to sell to but this is not going on my wish list, the thought of wearing domino leggings or any leggings and what I would look like in them is horrid.

Sorry for the small rant but what do you think about it all?

its all shit - it doesn't matter that its for fat girls - its still shit - the same kinda stuff is in dorothy perkins and new look - its fucking wank

EldonAve Thu 09-Jul-09 10:03:03

I'll be amazed if they sell any of it

Bloody awful. Is Beth Ditto the singer from The Gossip? She always looks horrible anyway. Nothing to do with her size really, she just wears godawful clothes that do absolutely nothing for her.

I think that stained glass prom dress is pretty

Bettymum Thu 09-Jul-09 12:22:48

What is hanging out of the knit face dress girl's mouth? Horrid horrid horrid.
I do like the purple sequins though.

i know without even clicking the link that this will be the Beth Ditto range.

it is awful.
im a size 24 and there is not one single item in that range that would look anything less than terrifying.

Evans is such a shit shop

Beth Ditto looks crap imo,who would want to copy her look fgs.

Evans trying the TopShop/KateMoss thing and failing miserably.

I complained last time I was in there, unless you want to wear loud 80's esque prints, there's nothing to buy except plain coloured t-shirts.

The working range is also crap, black and white, or um, black and white. Not very inspiring at all.

It used to be so good.

The girl said they'd had loads of complaints but they just had to put out what head office supplied.

I think having such recognisable stuff from Beth Ditto is like walking down the street with a big I HAVE TO SHOP AT EVANS arrow pointing at you. I end up in their plain t-shirts and jeans just cos there's nothing else. I am a 22/24 and just at my wit's end trying to find good quality stuff. It's New Look at one end (too young and crap) and Marina Rinaldo at the other (mumsy and too dear.) Evans is my only hope and they've failed miserably, IMO.

Someone on another thread put me on to yours clothing and I am a complete convert.

T-shirts and jeans that are cut for the larger lady (even my lardy arse)

So nice to feel comfortable in what I wear

(thanks Bonkerz!!)

Mamazon Thu 09-Jul-09 12:42:31

tell me about it. i have 2 weddings to go to in august and i cannot find anything to wear. nothing looks right. its either dodgy 80's clubbing type stuff or scruffy casual stuff. ok for day wear but not for a wedding.

its driving me nuts

Lulumama Thu 09-Jul-09 12:42:38

everything would make you look bigger and broader .

the swirly cape is quite sweet and the purple top

but the dropped waists and sleeveless things are going to be sooooooooo unflattering

might wear the leggings under a dress, but hardly inspiring

Kewcumber Thu 09-Jul-09 12:44:43

ah the trick is online - try

Flower3545 Thu 09-Jul-09 12:44:45

ooh that blue all in one jumpsuit has my name on it.............but only in my worst nightmares.

God its all awfulshock

JackieNo Thu 09-Jul-09 12:45:54

Those domino print leggings are grim shock. I guess it's aimed at the 'fat and proud' people, like Beth Ditto, but the vast majority of us want to hide the fact that we're fat, and make ourselves look slimmer.

hippipotamiHasLost44lbs Thu 09-Jul-09 12:52:54

It is all hideous. Absolutely hideous. But I have been bitterly disappointed with Evans for the past year or two. What is with these stupid harem trousers? And why are most trousers black, khaki, brown, beige or white?
And why do most tops have sequins and or ruffles on them? They do nothing for the larger breasted lady!! And cargo trousers with big pockets - they make legs look even wider!! And another pet hate - trousers with great big chunky buttons - two on the bum, some on the side pockets, some just for the hell of it (or so it seems) I don't want to look like I could be unbuttoned to nekkidness, and again, it makes the clothes look sooo chunky hmm
I stick with their plain jeans now and the odd blouse.

The only good thing about the Evans range being so rubbish is that I am determined to slim myself out of having to be their customer!! grin

MadreInglese Thu 09-Jul-09 12:57:50

Is it designed by Beth Ditto or just inspired by her?

IMO she always looks like she's dragged herself away from an 80s themed pub crawl, but I do admire her individuality and couldn't-give-a-hoot attitude

gorionine Thu 09-Jul-09 13:00:31

OMG it is the type of stuff I was wearing as a teenager in the 80's!grin

PinkTulips Thu 09-Jul-09 13:00:57

it's like clothes makers have forgotton that NO ONE LIKED THE 80'S STYLE SENSE so there's no bloody point reviving it sad

i really hate all the clothes around htis year, haven't found a single redeeming item yet, bloody depressing!

jooseyfruit Thu 09-Jul-09 13:04:40

article here in't guardian about the collection.

AuntieMaggie Thu 09-Jul-09 13:11:14

I think it's aimed at the younger crowd tbh

I have bought loads of lovely stuff in evans lately although do admit they could do more

MiniMarmite Thu 09-Jul-09 13:17:52

OMG, what were they thinking!

What a shame

BitOfFun Thu 09-Jul-09 13:24:16

I just looked at the Marisota site, and the model is a size eight soaking wet. hmm
