Bolero Blooms: New Prints and Patterns For Summer!

Summer is finally here and we are so excited about it! We had an unusually cold winter (even in sunny Florida) so we’re ready to break out our warm weather bust-friendly dresses. We’re introducing several beautiful new prints and patterns this season. New prints always make us happy, so this spring we’re doubling down on the colorful prints and offering a mix of classic, trendy and dramatic dresses that everyone will love. Read on to check out the new prints as well as some of the dress bodies that they come in - and then have fun picking out your new favorite dress! To buy a dress that you fall in love with, just click on it's name to get to the product listing. 

Prints and Patterns:


“Yellow Fun” Print:
We couldn’t pass up this summer inspired yellow print, which reminds us of both tiki bars and the 1980’s. This is definitely for those of you who like your prints dramatic and bold, but we know that many of our customers fall into that category! This print is made from a high quality Lyrca (don’t be scared of the whole bathing suit association that Lycra has!) with four way stretch to perfectly conform to your curves. It has great recovery and washes and dries well.

“Watercolor” Print:
This print is a classic, from the beautiful abstract print to the soothing blue and green tones. It’s refreshing, elegant and perfect for spring and summer dresses. This print is printed on ITY (Poly/Spandex mix) and has a wonderfully soft hand which makes it wrinkle resistant. This dress will come out of your suitcase looking as wrinkle-free as it went in, even if your destination is on the other side of the globe! This is a perfect print for the beach, but it also dresses up well for
dinners out.

“Galaxy Print”:

There are lots of galaxy prints out there, but we fell head over heels for this unusual Lycra based print as soon as we saw it. The teal, pink and purple colors look wonderful made up into a dress and make this print suitable for dressing up or for casual wear. Like the “Yellow Fun” print, this Lyrca has great recovery and four way stretch to skim over your curves beautifully.


Dress Bodies:
These prints will be available in a wide range of dress bodies, but make sure to contact us if you want a dress/print combination that you don’t see on the website. Here are some of our favorite dress bodies that use the new prints!

Angie Dress:
This dress features a beautiful sweetheart neckline with flattering bodice ruching and a full circle skirt. We’ve added pockets for you to carry around all of your warm weather necessities and paired each dress with an obi belt so you can create different looks with it. This curve-friendly dress will easily fit up to an H cup bust with zero modifications.


Weekend Maxi Dress:
We love this maxi because it is the ultimate summer dress: it can go from the beach to a fancy restaurant with a change of shoes and jewelry! It’s also wrinkle proof and washable, which makes it great for travel when you’re trying to minimize how many clothes you take on the plane. The long skirt is elegant and provides sun coverage, while the elbow length bell sleeves add movement and an extra dose of fun. The back bodice is lined for a nice smooth silhouette and the contrasting sash works perfectly as a casual belt. This dress fits H-cup ladies with no modifications and the v-neck won’t gap or show too much cleavage!



Any Day Dress:
This easy to wear dress has elbow length sleeves with classic cuffs, making it great for those slightly cooler spring evenings. The panels are used in conjunction with princess seams to make a dress that highlights curves, while the ruched front bodice adds shape. We’ve built in pockets so you’re never without your favorite things and included a belt so you can change the look of
the dress. This dress fits a range of curvy figures well, up to an H-cup!


Princess Ella Dress:
If you’ve been following us on Instagram lately, you’ve seen the Princess Ella dress! This combines a unique system of princess seams and back lacing to create a killer hourglass figure. The lacing in the back gives you a way to adjust the dress to get a custom fit, but also can be used to change out the look of the dress. The dress can also be worn without the lacing for a different look! We’ve designed it so the loops on the back blend in rather than stand out without lacing. This is a fit and flare dress with serious capacity for customization. Check out a recent review of this new fan favorite on Hourglassy!



Sleeveless Maxi Dress:
Everyone loves pajama dresses and this is our version. It’s so soft and comfortable that you’ll want to wear it all day! The 2” wide straps ensure that your bra is covered, while the gathered front and draped skirt help highlight curves without clinging to them. The dress is ankle length and can be customized to your height - just let us know!
