River Island introduces a size 18 to their range!

What is your opinion of River Island? Before this year I always thought of it as a shop whose sizes ran small and who sometimes sold lovely things but had a habit of covering them in ugly sequins and diamantes.

In the last few months however I have noticed some absolutely lovely items from River Island. And I am very happy to announce that after going in during the week I have noticed that they have now introduced a size 18 to their range! Well done River Island! They have some lovely dresses in at the moment. I thought in honour of them welcoming a more diverse range of shoppers, I would share a few of my favorites. I'm pretty sure they've reduced their price points slightly as well, so I think I may have to get a few of these things!






Unfortunately their website is flash based so I can't direct link but you can get these all at http://www.riverisland.com in sizes 6-18.

1. Hawaiian print dress - under 'day dresses' £24.99
2. Stork printed skirt - under 'skirts' £21.99
3. Long sleeve floral sweat - under 'tops' then 'long sleeves tops/hoodies' £24.99
4. Floral print zip thru skirt - under 'skirts' £21.99 (also comes in blue)
5. Spotted sack dress - under 'dresses' then 'day dresses' £34.99

  1. That jumper is cute!

    I agree with you about the sizes running small, and I would say about 50% of their stuff is full of chavvy sequins/diamantes. They ruin their lovely handbags too by stamping River Island all over them :-/

  2. oh that last dress is amazing! the sleeve shape is adorable! river island have really changed recently, i used to avoid it at all cost for fear of ugly sequinning or horrid material!

    its great that they are doing bigger sizes, because i think its so ridiculous that topshop dont go up to 18! Im a size 10-12 but totally believe you dont have to be stick thin to dress nicely or be fashionable! Its nice to see them doing something about it!

  9. It´s nice to hear they go up to an 18 now. Is it a big 18, or small 18 though? (If that makes sense)

  11. I haven't bought anything from River Island for months as everything is so overpriced and its always got something, such as sequins like you mentioned, stuck all over it to ruin it! I did pop in the other day and noticed they now did a size 18 which is amazing :) I adore that yellow skirt and shall be popping in after work to try it on!

  14. I worked at River Island (left around a week ago) I think they've changed a lot... they still have the usual sparkly horribly stretchy things but recently a lot of pretty things too. Im sooo going to miss the discount, i agree that everything is really overpriced! X

  15. Yeah, River Island have really turned themselves around. I also think their prices are now cheaper than Topshop.
