Happy Saturday beautiful people! Hows your week been? I’ve had a positive week after a big decision to change up my life, and it’s really paying off at the moment. I have actual time to do things – which is currently a novelty! But I digress. It’s Saturday Style time with a twist – since I’m giving away the dress I’m reviewing! So let’s get to it, right? Today we’re looking at the Rue107 Miranda dress!
When I was deciding the products I like from Rue107, the Miranda Dress really stood out to me. They don’t specialise in vintage styles, of course – but this has a Marilyn in Niagara sort of feel, don’t you think?
There’s three colours to choose from, and although I loved the yellow, there’s always room for a black sundress in my life!
I’m going to get a bit real here – this dress does NOT work for me at all. It’s sad, but very true.
As mentioned with my last post on Rue107, the sizing is just a bit off with this dress. I took this in the 2XL since I was bang-on the measurements. A 3XL might of worked better for me, but ultimately my body and the Miranda dress just don’t want to get on.
I don’t want to take away from how lovely this dress is, though, even if it doesn’t suit me! On the right body, this would be SO wearable through the summer. The tie bust feature is my favourite part, and the whole thing would look great on a beach with flip flops, or dressed up with pearls. Perfect holiday dress, maybe?
Now, you might of noticed in some of the pictures that there’s some serious underboob going on. That tie bust is what I think is the biggest issue for me in particular.
I’m small-busted at a 40D, with bottom-heavy breasts. This mainly means I have no natural cleavage, and kinda lose my boobs when I’m not wearing a bra. So it’s not too surprising that they’ve gone and disappeared in this dress! It’s definitely the sort of style that suits bigger, fuller busts. I just couldn’t tie it in a way that looked good, or wear a bra to force a shape.
Thanks to my boobs not co-operating, I think the straps are all out of place and nothing fits right. Bloody boobs ruining my dress fun.
The way the skirt flares isn’t my favourite thing either, honestly. I like a full skirt to encompass my huge hips, and this half-circle style is better for people who want a skirt to skim. I used to have a lot of problems with certain retro brands for this exact reason – the joys of having a 12″ difference between waist and hip.
Although whilst we’re on the subject of waists – I found this actually came up big in the waist. I couldn’t win with this one! Miranda, why must you have forsaken me?
But it’s not all doom and gloom, because it is a great dress. Just not a great dress for me. So now for the part you’ve been waiting for;
Win This Dress!
So. This dress hasn’t worked out for me at all. But what doesn’t work for me might just be perfect for you! Instead of letting it sit around, I want someone that will give it the use it deserves. So I’m giving away this dress to whoever thinks it would work better for them!
