Celebrity fans include fashion and lifestyle blogger, Sarah Ashcroft, Love Island’s Stephanie Lam and You Tube star Rachel Leary, as well as influencers Dabz, Melissa Sophia and Jess Flanaga.

Designed and produced in the UK from high quality materials including velvet and stretch fabric, each piece in the Ruched and Ready collection has been Named to reflect the brand’s mission to inspire body confidence in all women.

Lucy Bramley, who has a first-class honours degree in PR and several years of fashion marketing experience with Shop Direct under her belt, launched Ruched and Ready after struggling to find the right fit to suit her own curvy body shape.

She explains: “As someone who has always found it a challenge to find dresses to enhance my curves, I have spent a lot of time learning how to tweak outfits to make them more flattering.

“Plus-size dresses aren’t always created to make the most of curvy figures but every piece in my collection has been designed with my own body shape in mind.

“During the design process, it became clear that the Ruched and Ready collection flatters most body shapes, not just girls with curves.

2My aim is to inspire body confidence among all women and I am delighted that the collection is just as popular with girls who are a size 8 as it is with those who wear a size 18.”

Ruched and Ready is currently available in sizes 8 to 20 and there are plans to extend the size range even further as the brand develops.

The website features models showcasing the collection in small, large and extra large to show how the designs suit women of different sizes.
