I’m not shy about stripes. Even if they’re horizontal, I just appreciate a difference in print. The stripes on this Corey dress were placed in a couple different ways. After seeing the photos, they might seem to exaggerate my stomach. That being said, I don’t mind it – I’m not oblivious to the fact that I have a stomach! I felt beautiful in this dress.
Corey (aka Corey Lynn Calter) is a brand that doesn’t do plus, but created a capsule collection for Gwynnie Bee a while back and I was so excited when I finally got this dress. It’s something different, and who doesn’t want to try new things?!
The dress doesn’t have any stretch in it, so the waistband kept getting scrunched up on my stomach as it was a little too snug. I still loved it. The size was probably very true to a 24 as labeled – I usually am outside the bounds of it in the waist area. I loved the movement of this dress. It was a flowy lined cotton.
This dress isn’t available for purchase anywhere (it’s a Gwynnie Bee exclusive), but if you are in the mood for some blue-hued stripes, here are some good plus size options:
Do you embrace stripes?
