The days of summer are coming to an end, but the heat around here has me reaching for summer dresses even more. Enter this flowy maxi dress. I bought this dress over 2 years ago and it’s still in my closet, which is a testament to its versatility. The forgiving flounce at the front even allowed me to wear it during my pregnancy as well! I think it made me feel slim to wear a normal dress, but in no way did it hide my huge bump! Ha! I prefer the way it drapes on my non-pregnant figure but it was nice to get a little extra use out of it.
This dress is quite forgiving so I went down a size. Another nice feature is the adjustable straps. I wish more dresses had this! It’s so nice to be able to adjust it for different shoe options. As for the color, I would google the color you want and see if there are any real life photos of the dress. The colors that it shows on ShopBop don’t reflect the actual colors unfortunately. This dress is not fully see through, but I always wear a slip or Spanx with it. This is the slip I have – it’s a nice color and works with many of my dresses. I suspect that the lighter colors could be see through. But if you’re taking it to the beach (wishful thinking here) or poolside, then I say let it be!
