What we LOVE about Emily's blogpost

Emily HeadshotA few months ago, we received an email from Emily Lambert, aka Freelance Lady, a blogger who wanted to review one of our tops.

Even though we had our hands full with other projects, including launching this blog and our refer a friend program, we were so impressed with Emily's positive attitude, her fitness journey, and her personal story that we decided to work with her anyway.

We're so glad we did! At first, we considered reproducing her entire review here on Dare to Share, but we've decided instead to share 7 reasons why we love her blogpost. This should be a helpful guide for any of you who are considering doing reviews or guest blogposts for Dare Fashion (or any other fashion company, for that matter).

 

 

1. She LOVED the top

 

Of course, this is not a pre-requisite of a good review, especially because these reviews are supposed to be unbiased. However, our company tagline is Confident Curvy Couture and we pride ourselves on satisfied customers, so we were overjoyed that the Dare to Wear Sweetheart top in Blue Violet made her feel so happy and beautiful that she even took selfies to prove it!

2. She did her research

 

Before ordering, she found our Dare Fashion Size Chart, took measurements, and made sure to request the correct size. Then, before she started writing, she looked carefully at the Sweetheart Top product description, so that some product features that are important to us are reflected in her review. She also studied our About Us page and had a clear understanding about who we are and why we do what we do. We glowed with pride when we read her what she wrote:

"This company really understands just how difficult it is for us to find alluring, sexy clothes that actually fit. They're aware of the misconception that bigger women don't care about how they look... Luckily, Dare to Wear just gets it. This is why they offer some of the following plus size Renaissance, steampunk, Gothic, and Victorian fashions for women sizes S to 5X... You can finally rejoice! Dare to Wear has thrown out that terrible misconception that plagues plus size women around the world."

 

 

3. She delivered!

 

Her review was professional, timely, well-written, descriptive, and very detailed. We were impressed that she posted her review just a week after receiving the top! And that she not only described the top and its construction, but also how it fit on her. For example, we loved how she discussed how the corset lace-up worked with her figure to tone down her midsection and enhance her bust (this is just what Natalia designed it to do!).

 

4. She included LOTS of photos

 

In addition to the aforementioned selfies, she included photos of the front view, back view, side view, shots on the hanger, detail shots of the hemline and adjustable faux corset lace-up, and many more! All these photos give the reader a great feel for the top. Plus, all fashion companies are inherently a little narcissistic - we LOVE to see photos of our fashion on our fabulous customers!

 

5. She made it personal

 

Emily described how the top made her feel and how it affected the people around her.  "I feel so attractive when I'm wearing it.  Even my husband remarked about how nice it is (and he's quite the picky fellow when it comes to fashion)." With fashion, the emotional aspect is on par with the aesthetic - how clothes make us feel is just as important as how they look. A good fashion blogger knows this and will express her feelings as well as her observations.

 

6. She went above and beyond

 

She used her photos to make graphic images which included titles and a little artistic flair.

We also just loved the creativity in her outfit idea collages:

Renaissance Pirate Outfit:

 

 

 

 

 

 


Work/Interview Outfit:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. She promoted our company

 

Emily was enthusiastic about Dare to Wear throughout her blogpost and even included details about about our no questions asked return policy and our refer a friend program. This direct promotion helps convince her readers to give Dare Fashion a try.  Also, wherever possible, she included live links back to the appropriate pages of our website. This indirect promotion is also very helpful (for you business nerds and marketing-minded folks out there: it boosts the SEO of our site:).

 

Overall, we were extremely pleased with our collaboration with Emily Lambert, the Freelance Lady. So pleased that we sent her a Dare to Wear Electra top in Garnet and the Dare to Wear Harmony leggings in Black for her review.

 

What do you think of her review?  And would you consider writing a guest blogpost for Dare to Share?

Looking for something cute to wear on St. Patrick's Day? Dare Fashion is perfect for St. Paddy's: a little modern, a little medieval - retro and vintage flavored, yet still stylish and fashionable. But it's really about the fit - not tight, not loose, cinched above the waist - slimming the figure, while celebrating the curves... And we've discounted all the green tops in our inventory to $49...

Dear Dare,
Every year, my sweetie buys me stuff for Valentine's Day that I don't REALLY want or need. I don't really need any more stuffed animals - I'm not 12! And even though I LOVE chocolate, do I really NEED any more chocolate? OK, yeah, everyone needs more chocolate! But still, what I really want (and need!) is some new outfits 'cause fashion is my passion...

Size Guide

Relax. Don't worry. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked.  It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!

Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups,  and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.

And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
