On the Aussie Curves Facebook page – girls are always asking for advice on the best peplum – where different brands sit on the torso, how long is the peplum… Since I own a whole lot of peplum tops from different brands, I thought I would do a compare and share on Peplums…
The figures on my figure
So, to be helpful, I’m going to list my measurements at the time of the photos… Hopefully it will be useful information for you all! By the way, I’m 169cms tall.
I decided to wear a dark patterned bra so you can also see the quality of the peplums as well. Obviously if I was wearing them out in public – I would wear a nude bra or singlet… But this post is all about being a helpful resource!
I feel like CC peplums are longer in the torso and the frill is much lower.
I’m wearing a size 14.
I find the waist a lot higher on the autograph peplum, and so the frill is more exaggerated and sits out from the body.
I’m wearing a size 20. It’s slightly see through, but being white you would expect that. The peplum sits at a nice height on my natural waist, and I like the volume of the peplum. I’d prefer an extra cm of length on the frill – but it doesn’t really bother me…
I’m what was a bit of lucky break for this review, I have accidentally ordered a Dorothy Perkins Petite size peplum top – so you can see the difference… I’m wearing a size 20 petite – as you can see, much shorter in the torso and the frill finishes much higher than I am comfortable with…
This is from the New Look Inspire line, and it’s one if my favorite peplums. I’m wearing a size 18. The waist is nice and low, and there is the right volume in the peplum, so it doesn’t sit too far out from my body.
Hope you found that all helpful!
Where is your favorite place to buy peplums?
