I’ve had this dress on my wishlist for a long time and I finally picked one up. There’s depth to the design at Mimu Maxi: they aim to make modest clothing in accordance with their religious beliefs. I’ve seen women of different faiths and fashion sensibilities wearing this smock dress. It’s always been a standout in my mind—elegant, essential. In a sea of embellished, figure-hugging styles, the frock dress manages to stand out. I bought mine in a size L, said to fit sizes 16-20.
A note about shapes: Expecting women to dress in ways that emphasize curviness, or create the illusion of a select number of shapes is antithetical to what fashion means to so many of us. And let’s be honest, it gets boring too. Sometimes we’re an existential cloud and wish to dress as such.
p.s. It’s been a tumultuous week. Sending e-hugs to all.
