Six (and a half!) pieces we love right now

Social editor and resident plus size style obsessive Bethany talks you through her pick of navabi’s new-in section…

The strappy sundress

Dresses Violeta Strappy Gingham Cotton Blend Dress Blue Light Blue A60967 F0216

Totally carefree and perfectly summer-ready, I feel like this dress has the perfect blend of old-fashioned glamour and everyday wearability.

The ruffle-collar shirt

I find this shirt totally adorable, probably because of the little frill that runs around the neck, sleeves and down the front, but I feel like the smocked detail that creates a slight babydoll shape is what really makes it.

The cool evening dress

This is the kind of dress that was designed to give you dangerous curves, and the slightly off-the-shoulder style will only emphasise that (but still leave you able to wear your normal bra). And I love that asymmetric hem.

The gingham shirt dress

I get it: this is going to give some of you extreme flashbacks to your summer school uniform from primary school. But on the other hand, it’s such a pretty shade of green! And who can resist those pockets?

The slinky LBD

Dresses Manon Baptiste Ribbed Jersey Midi Dress Black A61889 F2400

Unfortunately this is one style where you can’t wear your normal bra, but it’s going to be totally worth digging out that strapless one. This dress is so cool, with slightly Seventies vibes, and feels like the perfect night out dress.

The powder blue suit

Ok so I’m counting this as one and a half pieces. This suit was already a huge hit in the baby pink shade, but I’m even more in love with it in this pretty periwinkle blue. So sleek and not too warm for summer. is funded by navabi ( We do this to push for fairer representation of plus size women in the media.
