Strapless geo print maxi dress
Fun & flattering dress
I was a little nervous buying this dress, too many reasons...it was green ( I was worried it might be too bright), it was strapless ( Am a 40 yr old mom of two, my girls reflect that ), the odd geometric design ( didn't want it to be out there )....but boy am I happy that I ordered this dress.
I ordered it in a 14/16, the usual size I wear and I have an hourglass body shape, this dress is really flattering, the diagonal stripes, the flattering design, the length it's a definite WIN. The color was a really nice shade of green, and this is from someone who has 2 green items in her closet ( make that 3 now ).
There is so much movement to this dress visually because of the design, it looks so flowy and fluid, very sexy if I do say so myself. I like the option of wearing it strapless or with a shrug depending on the occasion.
The only odd thing is the fold type pattern at the bust line but that did not add or over accentuate the girls, it somehow makes it look really nice. and put together.
I paired this with a seamless strapless bra ( item 14793 ) which I purchased along with the dress and nude seamless underwear ( item 58022 ) which I already had in my closet.
It runs true to size and I cannot wait to wear it. I think this will work as a very classy cover up at the beach too, since it is not see through and tacky.

Like another reviewer said, don't be afraid of the colors/pattern! I didn't think it looked that loud online, but when I got it, I was a little concerned, for a moment. Then I tried it on, and I LOVE IT! The fit is awesome, the pattern & colors are lovely on, and I can't wait to wear it come spring! It has a comfortable and reliable band of elastic around the top that works great. My husband loves it too! Wish there were more colors in this style.

I love this dress and cannot wait to wear it this summer. The fabric falls very nicely and the length is just right for my 5"11" size 14/16 frame. It flatters me in all the right places and comfortably stays up.

I loved this dress when I tried it on. The diagonal pattern helps draw the eye away from anything you'd like to hide. There's a decorative diagonal fold across the bust which is odd, but attractive at the same time.
I would definately recommend a shrug to go with this dress if you're not crazy about showing your back flap. I spotted one the exact same shade of green in the store, but I wasn't able to locate it online yet. But you could also wear a contrasting color in either a shawl, sweater, shrug or cropped jacket. Think how cute this would be for a cruise or vacation! I'm 5'2" and the length was just right for me to not trip myself up. It runs true to size.
