Blooming Bulbs Dress Review

When I saw the photorealist image printed on the Blooming Bulbs fabric, I immediately grabbed it for the dressing room. I wasn't crazy about the shape of the dress but I am a sucker for interesting prints. Knowing that the shape was not going to be forgiving through the hips, I grabbed a size 10. It fit fine but the print wasn't enough to save this dress for me. The fabric is substantial and the dress is lined, but the shape did nothing for my figure. The fabric's finish is a slightly shiny cotton with a bit of stretch. Still, if you are curvy it makes sense to size up!

I love the look of that dress, but it's Bailey 44, and after buying a few items of that brand I'm starting to develop a less-than-positive opinion about them and their unwashable jersey knits.

What an interesting print for that dress - I'm with you in that I usually don't do crazy prints but this one is intriguing. Sorry the fit didn't work out!

I like that print a lot, but can tell at first glance the dress as a whole is a no- go. I think it looks sweet on you, though.
