ASOS Curve Fit Day

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be invited to the ASOS head office in London for their Curve Fit Day. I had been so excited about going, but also nervous as I didn't know anyone else that was going to be there. But as soon as I signed in at reception, two ladies caught my eye waiting and I went over to say hi. We were then joined by a few more ladies as the minutes went past, and then we were all escorted up to the room where we would be trying on some fabulous clothes. 

We were joined quite quickly by the Curve team and their model Eva, who they use to try the clothes on normally. She was so lovely and funny, and seemed to love doing her job. So, pretty much straight away, we were measured up by Steph, given our 'ASOS Size' according to their sizing chart, and away we went! 

My clothes pile!

We started off trying on some lovely dresses, including an evening dress and couple of skater dresses which I loved! - I own 2 of their skater dresses already. The team really took on board all of our opinions and asked us lots of questions about the fit, style and what we thought about each product. We were all different sizes and heights, so we covered the majority of sizes under the Curve label. We all spoke frankly and honestly, loving some pieces, but very much disliking others! I had the chance to try on my first bodycon dress, and what was also my last! I just didn't like the feel of it, or how I looked in it. But, it was an experience! 

We then stopped for lunch, which was lovely and consisted of c=some yummy sandwiches and crisps. Whilst eating, we had a good chat with the team and gave our opinions on some of the trends coming out for next year, colours we like, and things we want to wear, no matter what size we are! We then got a tour around the office and got to look at some of the fashion coming out next year, got to watch some models being shot, including some lovely men..... Then we returned to the room and had some yummy cakes and treats, and started to try on some more clothes.

We tried on a few pairs of trousers, some coats and lastly, some of the ladies got to try on some swimwear which was new to the Curve range. During this, I had the chance to sit with Laura, and we had a good chat about blogging, and plus size, and just things we like! Then we got the chance to have a chat with the accessories team, and try on a few of their pieces, including some rings and belts. Then it was time for a few photos, a goodie bag and then home.....I had a 10 minute walk to the train station, then an hour train journey home. 

I had such a great day, and it was topped off with some new friends, some lovely goodies, and a new understanding of one of my favourite brands. I got some great bits in my goody bag, including some sweets - mostly stolen by the kids when I got home! - some nail polishes, and the best things, a fabulous black and white scarf with Pegasus on :) I love it and have worn it most days! And lastly a Thank You card with a £25 voucher inside.

Can't wait to see what great things come from ASOS Curve next year! And I made a cheeky purchase with my voucher which I will show you soon.
