This is lovely – while we’re here HOW do you wear a wrap dress if you’re large up top without displaying the goods? I have one I’m pondering wearing for something and my husband thinks it’s great but it’s really not. Cami or will it spoil the line of it? Slip? (Is that still a thing?) Pin it? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I was going to suggest a bit of lace/light gauzy fabric stitched to the v but have just seen ‘wrap dress’ . . . while I have, on occasion, stitched myself into a dress, I realise that’s quite an extreme solution. I’ll show myself out.
The stupid thing is, Sophie, that after reading your post I took another look (I’ve only just ordered it but have tried it on) and realised it’s not actually a wrap dress, but its cunning sister, the wrap-style dress. So sewing it could work. But then I wonder about keeping something that I have to make work for me (already have a husband boom tish)
Jeez, if returnable then return … was channeling my usual ‘I’ll wear this it’s fine la la la’ then try on two days before event, realise it’s far from fine, waste half day failing to find anything suitable to replace it despite metally flogging kidney to enlarge budget to ludicrous proportions, have a little cry, get the sewing machine out, save the day, present ‘ta dah’ to husband who says ‘oh, didn’t it look like that before?’, murder husband.
I am so glad we no longer go anywhere.
Also, you had me at ‘Bueller?’
Well it’s two days before the event here and water retention has put my other option out of the running, unless I want to look like one of those dolly toilet roll covers, (I…I don’t) so needle and thread it is…
Life moves pretty fast, and sometimes you don’t have your outfit sorted xx
LIFE MOVES PRETTY FAST … Cindy you are spoiling us
i have a couple of dresses from boden which i pin with a small brooch so as not to cause offence to passers by and small children!!! also if its spring time and not too hot i wear a thin vest top under in white.
Ooh, brooch. Thanks Lorna.

Browns Focus have 10% off at the mo on dresses online including this one. Beware though it comes up small especially on the chest. I’m a pretty standard 10 and initially ordered a 38, but it didn’t wrap over enough up top. I’m gifted in the chestal region but not massive (32DD). Reordered a 40 and it’s fine. You will need a slip under it too- at least on the bottom if you don’t want to scare the horses given the light colour. Creases like hell too. I’m not really selling it here am I? Honestly though, it looks lovely on. Especially with bright red lippy.
Ha! Thanks Lady Lu, you don’t need to sell it! We all appreciate the honest review x
I’ll be honest, I saw it and thought of that time I got my white uniform spattered in gore during midwifery training…
