I love the concept of a maxi dress but finding one that suits my figure can be a challenge. I am almost 5’8 so most maxi dresses come up a bit short for me. I am also very, very busty so anything that has a “boob” section is invariably too small even if the rest of the dress fits and I hate strapless bras so a boob tube or halter neck is also a no-no. With all that in mind, you can imagine my delight at finding the Monsoon dress I am wearing here.
The vertical stripes are slimming, it’s the right length and the top bit is flattering even for a large bust.
It also has a very funky back with a little cut away portion and a row of accent buttons. And who doesn’t love a bit of ethnic print.
Note to self: Combing your fringe to the side is not a substitute for a hair cut.
