Bombshell by Katya Wildman: My Latest Obsession!

Have you heard of the Bombshell dress? I first came across it here, where the bold bird print (that's it below!) first caught my eye. I soon realised that all the Bombshell dresses shared a similar 1950s aesthetic, with a sweetheart neck line and nipped in waist, so I did a little digging.

The dress was born when costume designer Katya Wildman couldn't find a dress that flattered her curves - so she designed one, complete with clever draping and secret panels. Its figure flattering ways soon amassed an army of devoted fans - Nigella Lawson chief amongst them - and the dress is now available in a wide range of prints and styles, from size 8 to 18. They all feature the signature neckline, gentle ruching and nipped in waist - and they all look to die for. I am seriously in love and have spent hours poring over the different patterns and prints online.

They are pricey though, coming in at £200+, so while I'm seriously tempted to invest, I'd love to hear from someone who has first-hand experience of the brand.

What do you think, are you a fan of this glamorous 50s style?
