The print on this is very cute; Retrolicious is hitting it out of the park this season! But this style just didn't work for me: it's cut very straight up and down, and the neck felt really high and warm (the tie band is very wide, maybe due to the plus sizing?). That won't work well with Southern summers. My real problem with this style is that it isn't suited to busty figures; my measurements are 44" B / 33" UB / 37" W, and the 1X was tight on my boobs yet was too loose elsewhere (shoulders, neck, underarms). I think I'll stick with the princess seam dresses and skirts but once again, absolutely love the whole Nocturnal print collection!
