If, like me, you are top heavy then buying dresses sometimes feels like Mission Impossible. I have liked many a dress only to try it on to find it is either a) shapeless and sack-like, making me look twice as big as I am or b) well fitted to all parts except the front which lacks coverage and makes me look like…well… a hooker. Actually I’m nearly 40, so an over-the-hill hooker?
Just because I have an ample cleavage doesn’t necessarily mean I want it on show. And where a hint of cleavage might be desirable an outright display isn’t really my bag. So I have tended to stay away from dresses, instead opting for separates so I can get the right fit in the right places.
Then Bravissimo came long and all my problems were solved! Bravissimo specialise in lingerie for the top heavy amongst us and I just LOVE THEM SO MUCH. I’ve bought my underwear and swimwear from them for years but have now branched out with their clothing range and can particularly recommend their maxi dresses. I have a couple and they are super comfy and flattering. You can dress them up or down and I’d say they look equally good with flats or heels.
Roll on Summer!
