There are a number of features I love about this dress. First of all it is a short and sassy dress which is not skin tight – great if, like me, you have a post op belly but nice legs. The full back coverage adds extra warmth to the torso and hides any back surgery scars. I can imagine this dressed up with a white tuxedo, diamonds and killer heels, dressed down with a vintage biker jacket and boots or somewhere in the middle with neutral heels, bag and jacket.
The notes suggest that it is not possible to wear a bra with this dress, no idea why that might be issue – do you know?
The Apricot Ditsy dress from New Look is completely different, different colours and style, nowhere near as fabulous, but has a similar feel to the Camilla and Marc dress. It would work equally well with the styling suggestions above and costs £26 (it looks like you can wear a bra with it!).
