Who the dress most suits

If you have an hourglass shape with a defined waist this is the perfect dress for you, as its slightly shaped on the waist. You can accentuate your waist with the loose belt and wear tied to one side.

If you are pear shaped, if you have a defined waist or pear shaped meaning bigger hips than waist this dress will suit you as it gently flares out from the waist. You may prefer the shorter midi maxi length of the turquoise Mykonos dress, or you can shorten the hemline so the eye is drawn to the lower legs and ankles.

If you are slim and more straight in your torso waist and hips, this dress will look great on you. You can also create a waist when you tie the belt centrally.

My waist is larger than my hips ? If you have a larger waist to hips and when shopping, you tend to wear a larger size on my top half this won’t be the most flattering style as the dress shape may draw attention to your upper abdomen below your bust. If you are conscious of your tummy area, then you can try to go up a size, so the fabric is looser.

Will this shape suit a larger bust ? Yes, the bardot top flatters both larger and smaller bra sizes. The ruffled neckline is designed to draw eyes away from the bust area. A great tip if you are larger busted is to wear the style one shoulder to create height instead of across the body. A great fitting comfortable strapless bra is key to feeling good in your bardot dress.The bardot style is also very flattering for a smaller bust, wear a moulded strapless bra for support and shape.

Does this cover the arms ? This luxury silk holiday dress can be worn without the belt for a looser fit. If you prefer to cover the upper arms wear in the bardot style as the ruffle on the top of the neckline will cover the upper arms.

I want to wear this to a wedding what shoes shall I wear ? Accessorise with warm gold accessories. For an overseas wedding, wear with platform wedges, add a gold clutch bag to finish off this fabulous look. We would suggest earrings and fine bracelets  as the neckline does not need a neckline. You can also tie the belt as a bow on the back of the dress or tie on one shoulder in a bow. This dreamy resort wear dress called Mykonos made of a soft silk georgette, is in a beautiful warm fashion forward yellow colourway with a tie dye in contrasting bronze.
