I've been seeing the maxi everywhere this year. Except in the stores where I can shop. I saw some in Old Navy earlier in the year, but most of them wouldn't have worked because of the size of my boobs. It's like they plan their XXL to be worn by someone that measures 48" around the bust, but only has B cups. Teeny tiny triangles of cloth to cover the boobs. Anyways, I digress.
I've been seeing maxi dresses on everyone and I want one like mad. Something like these dresses from eShakti.
Something with a crazy wild print would be good. The only reason I don't order one of those from eShakti is that I've heard shipping from them can take crazy long and I want a chance to wear this dress before the summer is over.
My measurements are 48-42-52, so, sort of a lumpy hour glass figure. Between 5'5" and 5'6", so not tall, not short. I usually wear an 18/20 at the LB. XXL at Old Navy (if I can find it). I don't bother with my straight size stores because even if I can get the stuff around me, it often doesn't fit that well. Bra size 42DD.
Oh, and I've seen the couple on the LB website and I hate them.
Am I asking the impossible? Maybe I shouldn't even be looking for a maxi, that it might not be the most flattering dress ever for the fatshionista. But they're very in right now, and that's a powerful draw. Have you seen a great maxi that might work for me?
