After my first three attempts at trying to find the perfect Lindybop, they very kindly let me try again and I just couldn’t stop thinking about this beautiful Fay Black Heart Swing Dress, I mean, how pretty is it!? The style, shape and pattern drew me in and although it wasn’t meant to be, as you can clearly seen from the bulging bust, I am going to make this work! More on that later.
So, the Fay is a completely different style at Lindybop than what I’ve tried before. It features a wide flared pleated skirt, a cross over V neckline, which is clearly too wide for me hence the busting pin, a lovely waist band which is spot on with sizing – when you size up. It has little cute bows on the shoulders and it is meant to sit more off the top of the shoulders but it’s not happening on me. It’s sleeveless but there’s no gaping which I hate in dresses but in the Fay I’m fully covered. It does have a zip at the back but I didn’t need to use it as the dress is pretty easy to get on and a good fit when you size up. I always size up to a 22 in Lindybop. It’s also lined but not in a way that usually makes the dress seem a size smaller and tighter. As you can see it’s a bugger to crease too.
The fitting didn’t work for me at all across my 38GG chest and despite trying to pin it, still it’s not wearable out of the house. I’m going to track down a fancy lace vest or at least a patch of lace to attach to my bra and wear it that way. How can I not make this work!? I need this dress, it’s too beautiful to give up on. I decided to add some peep toe polka dot heels and I now remember why I don’t wear peep toe lmao. My feel swell far too much for them to look anything other than a torture device. Anyway, I’m also using a LYDC bag to add a little shininess without taking attention away from the dress.
Appreciation for my fringe and hair here. I love these photos that my Mum very kindly took for me so I’ve left more in.
Thanks Lindybop, you’re so patient with me! After consulting a Lindybop Facebook Help Page (made by customers) I really want to try an Ophelia next, I think we might have a winner with that one as it’s more suited to my shape.
What’s your favourite Lindybop? If you didn’t know they stock sizes 6 – 26!
