Hidden Gems Of Amazon: GMHO Hepburn Style Midi Cocktail Dress

Hidden Gems Of Amazon

Hidden Gems Of Amazon

It’s been a while since I have done an outfit post, and I promise this won’t be the last of them. Today’s post is a little different from normal, as I am not the one who will be showing you the clothing. My friend Jenny, who you have seen here before will be modeling. And by the end of the post you will understand why.

Amazon seller GMHO recently reached out to me to see if I would like to review one of their dresses. You all know I am always happy to show some affordable options in plus sizes, so I said I would be happy to.

I was sent the GMHO Hepburn Style Midi Cocktail Dress. It is actually named something much longer on Amazon, but I shortened it here for effectiveness. It is available in sizes 14W to 22W, and it comes in four color options.

For sizing reference, I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″ And I wear a 40DDD bra.

So when asked what size I wanted, of course the first thing I did was take a look at their posted size chart.

I determined based on this, and the fact that the dress had stretch to it, that I needed a size 18. So when I received the dress a couple of days later, I was actually surprised to find that it was actually still too big on me. And that is where my friend Jenny comes into the picture. She was kind enough to give the dress a try, and it did fit her perfectly. She also agreed that I could take pictures and share it here. So you will be seeing her in this post.

I do not have Jenny’s measurements to share with you. What I can tell you is that we wear the same bra size. And while I am between an hourglass and a pear shape, she is more of a square shape I believe. We both wear generally a 20W, but I think because our body shapes are so different it affects whether we size down in clothing or not. If you do order this dress and you are an hourglass or pear shape, you might want to consider ordering a size down.

It fit really nicely on Jenny. And I think the dress actually looks better in person than it did in the stock photos. You can see it better here, but my pictures still don’t do this dress justice. Its made out of a really nice quality fabric that both looks and feels great.

It does have a surplice neckline, and since the fabric is also stretchy, if you have a larger chest you don’t have to worry about there being enough room. There seemed to be plenty of room in the arms as well, so no worries if you have bigger upper arms.

Also, the adornment at the waist actually looks nice in person. I don’t know about all of you, but I have definitely bought dresses online that had similar adornments, and when they show up they look really cheap like plastic. This one does not look that way though.

You can find GMHO’s clothing on Amazon. Additionally they have merged with a previously reviewed brand ESPRLIA, and have launched their own website where you can also purchase their items. If you prefer to shop for the dress on their new website, on that website the dress is called the Esprlia Women’s Plus Size Dress Wrap With Belts. The sizing is a little different, but the size chart is the same.

Have you tried a dress from GMHO before? What did you think? Make sure to share your thoughts.

A Month Of Giving – Win A Daily Ritual Women’s Plus Size Jersey T-Shirt Dress And More

Giveaway Time

Even as a little kid giving to others has always given me great joy. As an adult I still have the joy of giving in my heart, and I think our society would be so much better off if we taught people how to foster that. I know so many people, including some who I am very close to, who get grumpy around the holidays and express that they feel it’s a burden to have to buy others gifts.

Now I am of the mind that if you feel obligated it is no longer a gift, it’s an obligation. Also, there are so many ways to give, and many of them have nothing to do with spending money or even giving physical items.

So in the spirit of fostering the joy of giving, I want to spend the month of December concentrating on giving. I will sharing all sorts of things pertaining to giving both here on the blog and on my social media. And I wanted to get this started off by giving back to all of you. I have a few different giveaways planned. But I wanted to start here on the blog. I thought for a while about what I wanted to do a giveaway with, and I decided I really wanted to give you all the chance to try the dress I recently shared.

Giveaway Time

Obviously from the title you know I am talking about the Daily Ritual Plus Size Jersey T-Shirt Dress. I decided on this dress in particular because of the size options and the accessibility. It is available in sizes 1X to 7X. And if you would like info on sizing and fit you can check out my recent review of this t-shirt dress.

The winner will be able to choose the size and color option out of the current available offerings.

I will also be giving away to a second place winner a sheet mask set.

Sheet masks for giveaway

The second place winner will receive all of the sheet masks pictured above. They are a combination of various masks I have been sent boxes of to try this year, as well as a few I couldn’t use because of my allergy (no point in letting them go to waste when one of you lovelies could use them).

Both of these giveaways are open to residents of the US, Canada, and the UK. (Unfortunately I can not guarantee delivery before Christmas for the Canada and UK entries)

I am doing my giveaways a little different this year, trying to make it simple for all of you. I am not using the app this year, you don’t have to sign into anything this year. So how do you enter?

Simply leave a comment on this post telling me something that is on your Christmas wish list this year. For an extra entry share this post on Facebook or Twitter (your post must be a public post so I can verify the entry) and tag My Plus Size Life in your post. Make sure to leave a way for me to contact you in your comment if you are the winner. This can be an email address, a social media handle, etc.)

You will have until the 14th of December to enter, and a winner will be announced on the 15th. If there is no way to contact the name drawn or if I don’t have a response within 48 hours a new winner will be drawn.

I will also be doing some giveaways on my various social media accounts over the next week. So make sure you are following me on all of those.
