Elan Convertible Cover-Up Dress
I bought two, one in black and one in blue for my daughter for her honeymoon in Jamaica this summer. It is so versatile and comfortable. It can be a sundress, a skirt, a beach coverup or add jewelry to dress up. It seems easy to pack. She usually wears a size 8-10 and I bought her a large which fit perfectly. It is so flattering as she has a slight pear shape body. I wish it came in larger sizes for mom's too.
I got this in black. I wore it to a spa day with the girls and they loved it! I got one in blue for my friend's upcoming birthday. Its really versatile and the video shows the many ways to wear it as a dress or skirt.
great for pregnancy
I am so happy to have fallen upon this dress. I am mid-way through my pregnancy. I don't have that big of a bump yet, but judging from how things went last time I think that this dress will provide PLENTY of room even late in the pregnancy. But because of the variety of ways you can decide to tie the dress, it's not too smock-like if you are not pregnant and have a small waist that you want to show off.
I agree that it would be nice if the dress came in xs. The small fits me now with my increased bust from pregnancy but I could see it being too big for someone with a small chest and/or band size (e.g. 32A, which is what I was before pregnancy.) As a current 34B/C, I fit the small well. Also, the size chart should probably be based solely on your bra size--go by that part of your dress measurement when selecting your size. Everything else is flexible based on how you tie it, so waist/hip size doesn't matter.
The dress is also very comfortable and the blue color is beautiful. I saw the black and the striped ones available in the store and they also looked very good. I am hopeful that it holds up to washing, which appears to be the only negative comment people have had.
Heading to Cabo and needed a dress to go from beach to dinner. This is it! It has multiple ways to wear and the fabric is forgiving.
