Laura Dress Monarch
One of our favourite shapes for summer is this cute, practical and comfy dress, Laura! She has lovely wide straps which are practical and have a button that makes them perfect for new mums! She is part of our Golden Apple range and is the perfect shape for layering all year round.
FEATURES: Laura features an adorable scoop neckline with useable button detail on the thick straps, shirred stretchy side panels and zip back. She also features a panelled, shaped bodice for a perfect fit, box pleats at the skirt and of course, side POCKETS! She is a really fun style with a longer skirt length, perfect for the taller ladies and anyone who likes a little more coverage at the knee. The length generally sits below the knee on average heights. Laura’s wider button down straps are perfect for covering wider bra straps and make Laura the best choice for a cool option on super hot days, but she is also perfect for new mums who need a dress they can feed in, without feeling like you have to compromise on the cute! Laura will be the perfect fit on smaller or larger busts due to the shirred panels on the back and the shaped bodice front, both of which will give to you the perfect silhouette and hug you in all the right places. She has a centre back zip for easy getting on and off. The full pleated skirt will be flattering on the hips due to the flat box pleats and a-line shape of the skirt. We have added enough fullness to give her a breezy skirt, but she is a lovely shape at the hip, without unneeded gathering.
HOW TO WEAR: Laura is just beautiful worn as is on a hot day, as the bodice is a lovely fit, without being too tight or restrictive. The clever shirred panels mean she has a really good amount of hold through the bust, and will also stretch to fit bigger busts perfectly. The cut is modest at the neckline without being too high cut, and the coverage at your bra line is just perfect, no matter what you wear underneath. She is also such a perfect cut for layering. We imagine her being worn with our basic long sleeve tops, skivvies and even our Clementine cardigans over the top. We also love the fact we can wear her perfectly with our ballet wraps, and the waistline is perfect with the wrap tied to the back. Laura is a perfect shape to wear with or without layers, and she is a super flattering silhouette on all shapes. We love Laura because she is so versatile and easy to wear. We love her easily dressed up shape, pair her with a dark coloured ballet wrap, a pair of dressy shoes or some strappy sandals. Laura is the perfect shape on all body shapes, particularly on a larger bust due to the shaping at the bodice. Laura could be your new favourite shape due to the versatility and comfort of her cut, and if that doesn’t make it perfect for you, our amazing prints certainly will.
If you have bought Laura before we have found that this run is a little bigger than in the past. Double check the measurements if you are unsure but we have found that we are sizing one size down.
