"Although I have worn plus-sized clothes for most of my life, I have never been plus-sized on top. Big girls do not always have big boobs, which makes bra shopping difficult for me and causes me to be cautious when ordering dresses online. Most plus-sized dresses are designed for women with a lot on top, so I’m never sure how the top part of a dress is going to drape on my chest (or more likely off my chest).
I was picking up the Julianna dress just a day before I had to wear it at a blogger conference, so I packed dozens of safety pins in my suitcase just in case I’d have to make impromptu alterations before our fashion show. Luckily, I had nothing to worry about! The Juliana dress has a wrap-style top which covered my flat chest without sagging or falling off. The fabric has enough stretch that it would probably flatter a large-chested woman just as well.
I love the kimono sleeves on this dress too because it eliminates any chance of the sleeves being too tight, which is another problem I sometimes encounter when trying on dresses. It’s also an easy dress to throw on over your head and just go. There are no complicated sashes to be tied, and I didn’t even need to unzip the zipper on the side to get into it.
And in a moment of complete serendipity, the dress even matched the drink I ordered that night!"
