What I Wore: Grey Bustier

6 July 2016

Keepsake Strapless Top from Revolve

Yes I know it’s winter here in Australia! But hey, some days are warm enough for a strapless top and a light cardigan.

This gorgeous top is a Grey Tessellate Top, courtesy of Revolve. It’s still on sale (XS, S, M still available), if anyone is interested?!

I bought it because I wear skinny jeans a lot and wanted a top that was a bit unstructured but still super-flattering.

I’m not going to lie, I know strapless tops suit me and look great on my body shape. It accentuates my best features! It looks young and pretty, but still elegant, effortless and a bit grown up.

It is actually a crop top, with a floppy layer, open on one side, so it flashes my tummy and waist at certain angles, but I’m ok with that.

I’m wearing the XS/6 and it fits me very well across the chest. It doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall down.

The only issue with the top… is that the chest has double layered fabric (because of the petal layer thing) and is a bit heavy, so the top hem falls forward and looks weird – I suspect it’s because I have a small bust.

So to make it sit right, I had to wear TWO strapless bras! Haha it sounds so crazy, but it wasn’t that bad. It just felt like I was wearing a bikini swimsuit underneath.

It looked perfect on me after that :)

I still felt comfortable enough to wear it and move around all day. It didn’t particularly make my boobs look bigger either, because all the floppy fabric just made my whole chest look shapeless haha. Double bras! Omg I don’t believe I’m admitting these things on the internet!

I love that I can wear this with culottes, high waisted skirt, pants, jeans and who knows, maybe denim shorts when summer comes around.
