PLUS SIZE Lula pretties

Lula is a PLUS SIZE brand at David Jones. It's a brand which reader Kathleen has advised SIA is terrific. SIA agrees. 

Here are a few of the summer pieces remaining at the Castle Hill store, all reduced.  

First, the cross front shirt - the lines on this distract the eye from lumps & bumps. 

Obviously wear with a singlet top or cami underneath & it doesnt have to be nude, white or black. Try a pop of red. 

2. The pleather band on the hem makes this frock directional. A leather belt mimicking the band, helps to pull the look together. 

3. Wear this as an open trench style jacket with a loose opening with the tie. The ruffles create vertical lines.

4. Under no circumstances attempt this next one.
Just because its made by a plus size label, doesnt mean its suitable. All this creates is a giant monoboob and a fat torso. 

5. This is a sharp piece. Try it open or closed with a cami or tank underneath. Ideally those "arrows" created under the bust should be placed under the bust. If they are sitting on the girls, put it back. 

6. A lovely piece with its own detachable cami. Love the low neckline to break up any monoboob. 

7. Love this. Again, the fit is crucial. 

8. Another lovely

9. This is a throw on soft kaftan. 

10. Love the neckline on this shift with the black binding around a sweetheart neckline. 

11. A stretch number with a mock wrap skirt & a side ruffle.

12. Love this - easy to wear, but add a 3cm wide belt. Love the dense flowers around the upper-middle to emphasise the waist.

13. This looked a bit lary in the store. But when you're in the changeroom, one more frock isnt going to kill you. 

14. A very simply cut shift whose neckline brings the eye upward. That's what we want ladies. 

15. What's not to love?

16. This is a bit tent-ish, but the colours were gorgeous. 

17. A ponte fabric with a terrific neckline.  Would have preferred a slightly longer sleeve, but still worth trying on with a cardi or jacket. Fab for work.
