The holiday season is quickly approaching and every woman needs a red dress. It’s almost like a power suit but for a different occasion.
Red looks beautiful on me but I tend to not wear it as much. I prefer neutrals so here’s to stepping outside of my comfort zone and going red for the holidays! This dress fit me beautifully. I love the way it flatters my new postpartum body while still allowing me to feel sexy!
This dress was gifted to me by PinkBlush and it did not disappoint! I love that they offer great transitional pieces. A lot of my maternity clothing that I have from them I am still able to wear after having Clayton and the best part is I can still nurse in them. It’s a win-win in my book.
So let’s get into the dress!
Colors: Red and Royal Blue
I’m wearing a 1X and I could have done a straight size L but I like to be safe than sorry. Reading their size charts are very helpful.
The red is vibrant and it will turn heads! Its light weight and easy to take on and off. You WILL need to steam this dress. I allowed mine to hang in the bathroom over night to avoid pressing the dress. It worked, so if you don’t need to wear the dress immediately that’s a great option. The dress is low cut so if you’re uncomfortable with that you can always pin it or sew it up a bit. I used a little piece of double sided tape and it worked beautifully without harming the dress. I’m 5’6 and the dress is a little long but that’s what I loved most about it. I truly felt like a goddess when the dress floated behind me.
