My go-to for the summer
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I want to start off by saying I've never believed in 'built-in' bras. I'm relatively small chested (32DD or 34D depending on brand) but gravity is a serious factor at this stage in my life so I typically avoid anything that claims you don't need a bra. However, the dress was so cute I decided to take a chance. This dress is seriously flattering. The skirt has enough movement to keep it feminine, while the overall cut is secure enough that you can garden/take a light trail/run errands in it without fear of flashing the world all of your, ahem, assets. I've got this bad boy in three colors, and I've noticed zero difference in design and fit between them (this can be an issue with some brands). I'm a big believer in "if the shoe fits, buy it in every color", so I'll likely be filling my closet with every color and just living in these like an adorable, breezy hobo. If you're on the fence, pull the trigger.
Very cute but slightly hard to take off
- Size Bought: Large
I bought the Grapevine Gemstone Cali dress on sale. Super cute and love the material. It has a built in bra which I like for summer. However theres not much give, so it was hard to take off. I bought a large and I am a 36D.
Ive also bought Prana Amelie dress, Large. That one does not have a build in bra, but has a lot more give and its very flattering.
