Friends & Brands| Monae James Boutique Review

Even before I started blogging, I have always been on the lookout for brands that catered to my body type. I never realized how limited the selection was for curvy or plus-sized women until I bra shopping not long ago. While I was able to find some bras in my size, they are all the same color. And to me, it’s kind of disappointing that it is that way.

Today though, I am really happy to introduce a new brand to you. Monae James Boutique sells clothing for women like me. I found them through the Collabor8 app which you can download here. It helps connect influencers to brands and companies that are looking for people to work with. Monae James Boutique sent me a dress for my review. I’ll be sharing my thoughts with you today.


Slinky Off Shoulder Dress


I typically wear a 2x as a general size but I got this dress in a 3x because I don’t like tight fitting clothing. I’m actually glad that I did that because it fits perfectly.


The dress is made up of a polyester and spandex material. It does stretch and I love that it is really flowy.

The temperature stayed around the mid-40’s today, so I paired this dress with some burgundy tights and one of my favorite sweaters. I will say that this dress is extremely versatile. It is the right type of color and material that can be worn this time of year. But I can also see myself wearing it in the Spring/Summer with a pair of sandals.

My Final Thoughts

Do I recommend this dress? I do, 100%. I have worn it all day. I even wore it to physical therapy earlier. Not only is it cute, but it is super comfortable. Should you look up Monae James Boutique? Definitely, there are other dresses that I have my eye on. I think it’s wonderful that they cater to curvy women. I’m just happy that I have been given the chance to do this review.
