Advantages: Order from home. spread payments, fashionable well made clothes
Disadvantages: Some items sell out very quickly.
Fashion World are a mail order catalogue which specializes in women's clothes sizes 12 to 26. Their catalogue is well designed, with the clothes categorised, and for the most part the clothes are well made.
They have the usual basics like trousers, leggings, shirts, jumpers, etc, but Fashion World usually have some trendier, more fashionable items in each catalogue too. A couple of seasons ago there was a fake fur coat that I coveted, but at £75 I couldn't justify the cost.
I think the clothing is reasonably priced, and many of the items such as leggings, and summer tops are available in multi packs, which further reduces the cost.
One word of warning though - many items, especially those which are currently in fashion, or classic desighns, do sell out very quickly, so have alternatives ready when you place your order.
The fact that you can order online, as well as by phone or post is great, and delivery is within four to ten days. You can spread the payments as well, so it's good for those on tight budgets.
I'd definitely recommend Fashion World, especially if you are a size 16+. Most of my current 'basic' wardrobe came from them, as well as several of my smarter clothes items.
