By Samantha Melbourne

The Wrap Dress I am SO excited to tell you about one of my favourite designers, By Samantha Melbourne. From….you guessed it – Melbourne! Samantha has a unique twist on the classic ‘wrap dress’ using spectacular local prints and dresses that will flatter your curves and make you feel absolutely fabulous! I’ve always loved a good wrap dress – simple, flattering, comfortable and perfect for almost any occasion. Unfortunately, finding one that fits properly has proven to be quite a challenging task indeed. There have been many times in which I’ve gazed upon beautiful printed wrap dresses in stores and wished I had smaller ‘bits’ so the dress would fully wrap around my body going against everything I stand for about positive body image. I truly believe you should NEVER be defined by the sizes offered in stores and this is why I am so passionate about finding brands that are bold enough to break the fashion mold and offer a diverse range of sizes for EVERY BODY.

Chanel Wrap Dress (Maxi) MAXI WRAP DRESS Compared to your generic Maxi dress, this little honey has everything you need - it has been carefully created to flatter the lines and curves of a woman’s body and best of all, the bust material tucks in firmly so your bits don’t wobble around or fall out! The weight of the jersey fabric falls beautifully giving each dress amazing movement is really really comfortable! #clever

Customize Your Dress Samantha’s dresses can also be customized to your height and sleeve length. You can choose from 3 lengths: Maxi Length Classic - wear over your bathers at the beach, weddings and parties.

Sophie Wrap Dress

Knee Length Super easy to wear – the shorter cut can be worn casually, for after work drinks or on a hot summer day. You can also add a blazer or jacket for a more corporate look.

Navy Wrap Dress (Knee Length)

Short Length (above the knee) This style is cheeky – show off your pins! Perfect for a warm day.

Additionally, you can have the sleeves altered to a cap sleeve, ¾, or no sleeve! #iloveoptions

Colours and Prints Get outside your comfort zone and choose a colour and print you’ve never worn before! #becauseyolo I fell in love with the 'Selina' print but NEVER thought the colours would compliment my skin tone. I tried it on anyway and to my surprise and delight, it looked great and it is now one of my favourite dresses! Helpful Hint: If you find brighter/lighter colours a little scary and you're worried about your tummy or lines peeping through, just wear shape wear underneath to give you the extra confidence and support.
