My first Collectif review of 2021 features one of the most comfortable and adorable little summer dresses.
I'm usually not one to order a butterfly covered dress but something about the neckline and sleeve of this style really appealed to me. I also had no idea that the print was even butterflies until I read the name.
Featuring a orange, blue, pink and green butterfly print on a bold, black rayon background. This fabric is super lightweight and a dream to wear in the Australian summer heat.
A mini length with a fitted waist, brown buttons down the front to the waist. A deep v neckline and elbow-length puffed sleeves that have gorgeous frills at the cuffs. Those little cuffs really stood out to me and pretty much instantly sold me on this piece.
Now lets chat fit! I'm in the UK18 and it's firm in all the right places so I feel great uncorseted. The only thing I'm wearing beneath this dress is a shape-wear bodysuit and as you can see the fit is superb.
The bust is a tiny bit small for me (forever the issue haha) but braless really works. When I wear this out I'll be using Boobie Tape to get an even firmer fit for that deep v neckline.
Now this piece is from the Bright and Beautiful line from Collectif. Their more hippy, Bohemian label and I'm forever adding B&B pieces to my lust list. The fabrics, flowing skirts and amazing sleeve detailing always makes me swoon.
