I love a maxi dress, they are pretty much my evening staple when I am on holiday, but I've always struggled to find a strapless bra that can contain my puppies, let alone give me a cleavage or stay up. Enter the wonderbra ultimate strapless (beware of a bra picture coming up!)
This thing is amazing. It stays put (even after vigorous dancing), gives me a cleavage and allows me to wear my plethora of bandeau dresses. If you're up to a 38G, then I can't recommend this highly enough. Admittedly, if like me you can only fasten your bra's from the front, it's a bleeding nightmare as it is impossible to turn around, but that's a minor detail for an almost 37 year old woman who can't fasten a bra properly...
The dress is a fairly bright print and pretty comfy and easy to wear. I have the same one in black and they got a lot of wear while I was away. The sandals are pretty, but really blooming painful. I think I need to wear them a lot more to get used to them. They smell nice at least.
very serious face.
