In the world of size-inclusive fast fashion, there's no denying that brands like Forever 21, H&M and the infamous Fashion Nova have nailed it. When it comes to trendy, size-inclusive clothing that is also affordable, these companies are leading the pack.

But there's a new brand that's joining this pack, and that's Pretty Little Thing.

The online retailer has dressed some of your favorite celebrities, including Kylie Jenner, Teyana Taylor, and Kourtney Kardashian. Pretty Little Thing is also quite size-inclusive, as there is a plus-size section, and most styles go up to a US 20.

I wanted to see if the PLT hype was real. So I went shopping to see just how awesome Pretty Little Thing is for plus sizes.

First I tried the slinky wide leg trouser ($28) and matching cropped top ($27), in this bold and eye catching vibrant green.

I am definitely a lover of a matching two piece set, they are very trendy and stylish especially for summer. This set has a very comfortable and relaxed fit! I am typically a US Size 18, but per the brand's size guide, I am wearing a US size 20. While the top fits, I would definitely size down in the pants.

This tie belt was perfect for adjusting the top ($27) to your comfort level.

I loved the style of the top's bell sleeves, and good news for tall girls — these sleeves are super long!

Nicola tried the black satin wrap dress ($38) — which she loved, even if the sizing was a little confusing.

Nicola is a size 14. This dress is a size 20, and it fit her almost perfectly. "If you're larger in the chest, this would be a great dress for you," said Nicola. "I have more room in the bust than I was expecting, but the fit around my waist and hips is right."

Next I tried this floral twist front maxi ($55), which was my standout favorite piece. I am a girl who LOVES to wear prints, and this dress did not disappoint.

I am wearing a size 20, and it fits perfectly!

I also LOVED this thigh-high split on this dress! It added the perfect touch of summer sexy.

I was also feeling the length — I'm 5'9, and it can be tough to find maxi dresses that are long enough. But this Pretty Little Thing dress answered all my floor-length prayers.

Speaking of summer: This printed satin dress ($45) has already proved to be a warm weather hit with influencer. So Nicola and I both tried it on to see how it really looks on our body types.

Nicola is wearing the size 20 dress, because she likes a looser fit. She loved the bold print and cinched waist, plus the relaxed fit. "Even though I'm a size 14, I'm glad I sized up in this dress," said Nicola. "It really gave me the looser, more casual look that I like."

On me, the size 20 was quite form-fitting — perfect for a night on the town. I loved how sexy the deep-v neckline was, and the fact that the material had some stretch was a definite bonus.

Next I tried the ice grey slinky kimono midi dress ($38) — and I fell in LOVE.

I think this is the type of dress that every girl should have in their wardrobe. It's classy yet sexy, and most importantly, it's comfortable. This dress can definitely take you from desk to dinner with ease.

This tie knot feature was super cute, and cinches perfectly at the waist to accentuate my curves. This Pretty Little Thing dress REALLY made me feel pretty.

Another feature of this dress that I loved: The sleeves are very roomy and super comfortable, which is great for those of us with larger arms.

I was also sold on this cold shoulder ruffle top ($25) — it fits like the most perfect crop top, and I am NOT mad that it does.

I found the fit of this top very comfortable. I have large boobs and the material is very stretchy. 

I paired this top with these gray wide leg trousers ($28). They are super long, which as a tall girl I appreciate, but short girls should be prepared to get them taken up.

An item I was a little nervous about was this nude mesh bodysuit ($28) — but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my concerns were unfounded. This bodysuit was gorgeous!

Most bodysuits are cut very low in the back, which means strapless bras are a challenge. However, this Pretty Little Thing bodysuit covered half of my back, which made it easier to wear a bra underneath.

I added the snake print duster jacket ($38) as an outer layer to this outfit. Lightweight kimonos are a wardrobe staple, and this is one my favorite items from Pretty Little Thing.

Kimonos usually feature loud colors and floral prints, so seeing this one in snake print was eye catching.

The size 20 was perfect, as the front closed fully over my breasts without feeling restrictive. It was also long enough, which as a tall plus-size girl, I'm always happy about.

Finally, I tried this white playsuit ($30) — which was the cutest thing ever!

I chose a size 20 in this playsuit, but could have sized down to a US 18, because there was some extra room — though I did enjoy the more relaxed fit. This playsuit definitely created a polished to perfection look.

I also loved the bardot neckline with the cut-out feature.

This is something I could wear to a variety of events this summer!

So after trying on so many pieces from Pretty Little Thing, what's my verdict?

I am *here* for Pretty Little Thing. I love the eye-catching designs and color options.  The price point is also very budget-friendly, and there's a large range of plus-size options. I'm excited to see PLT continue to expand those size-diverse options!

So if you want to stock up on some new summer pieces, Pretty Little Thing is definitely Revelist approved.
