As anyone with a larger bust knows, it’s a real challenge to find clothing that fits and flatters. Dresses can be especially difficult if your bust to waist ratio is of the more hourglass variety. To the rescue is Bolero Beachwear! They make adorable clothing that is made to fit and flatter the DD+ woman.
Today I’m excited to share my review of the Amour Maxi. I was generously sent this dress for review but all opinions are my own. We recently featured this wonderful company and it’s creator, Patricia McCaw in one of our retailer spotlights here and my fellow blogger Jelz reviewed the cute and flirty hanky dress here.
Lets get down to the details! The Amour Maxi is described on the Bolero site:
“Cross-over top with the right coverage, no pins needed. V-neck, short sleeves at the right length to cover under arms, lined back top, very flowing skirt to free your hips and the belt will accentuate your hourglass figure. The soft mix of 90% Poly-10% Spandex makes this a must-have dress for your travels. Easy-care, wrinkle-resistant and sturdy material, no thin, t-shirt material here.”
I love the cross over top that fits like a glove. It gives a very flattering neckline without being too revealing. I could move freely, bend over, etc. and there were no worries of anything falling open. The red belt, which also comes in royal blue is completely separate and ties to adjust for size. I tied mine in the back, but the Bolero site pictures it tied on the side.
The material is stretchy but of a very nice weight, not too thin or sheer. The wrinkle free feature is great, and I can definitely attest to it!
I wear a size 14 in almost everything, and the dress in Large fit perfect. The length is very nice on my 5″9 frame as well, perfect for flats or wedges like I paired it with here. Note that dress length can be customized upon request by emailing Bolero.
This dress would be perfect for work but the stretchy fabric certainly makes it comfortable enough to wear casually. I personally live in dresses in the warm weather seasons, and this will surely be a wardrobe staple.
I can highly recommend this dress and Bolero as a whole. Patricia is a gem and is very willing to help with sizing or any other questions. She is clearly passionate about what she does, and it shows!
