The Ionia dress was not my first dress by Lindy Bop, but it is definitely one of my favourites.
The sleeves, bust and waist shape are very flattering and comfortable – especially if you are more of a plus size like myself! The length is also just on the knee, so very suitable for work as well as for less formal occasions.
Due to the stock at the time, I bought a slightly larger size which, while very comfortable, is a little loose for my liking but I will probably do some alterations to bring it in slightly in that area. However the larger size did allow for a more room around the arms which may have been a little too tight in my usual size. The bow tie at the back brings the waist in nicely without the dress being too restrictive.
Overall, I was so pleased with this purchase and I got some very lovely comments in the office on the first day I wore it. I hope that Lindy Bop will continue to make the Ionia shape in more colours and patterns as I would love to add more of these to my collection in the future!
