Can you believe that we are just moments away from summer? I’m so damn anxious I don’t know what to do, I’m dying to be on someone’s beach right now (shout out to all my west coast B+C Luv’s)! However, being a fashion guru and a proud lush diva, I notice many many fashion mistakes that people make during this beautiful season, especially my fellow Lush ladies!

FYI: My sole purpose of doing the weekly Lush Note is to educate women (specifically lush ones) about their bodies and how to make them look there best!

That being said, if you are one of the following please do not, I REPEAT, do not purchase a single maxi dress unless you will for certain have it altered!


* Have a stomach that sit outs more than 4 inches from your back
* Wear a bra cup size bigger than a D or strap size larger than 38. That includes 40B’s, don’t play yourself ladies
* You are shorter than 5’4. At that point the dress will be wearing you, instead of you wearing the dress
* If you have an extreme pear or triangle shape. Meaning that your shoulder and waist are severely smaller than the hips and thighs. I’m talking 34-27-48!
* If you're not going to wear the correct undergarments, strapless bra, thong, tanga or shaper even

If you even THINK you fall under any of these restrictions detailed above, just don’t do it! Maxi dresses were not made for curvy, big boned, busty, fat bottom lush women. Women with lots of curves and full figures need clothing with structure made of sturdy fabrics. Maxi dresses hide our best assets, because they have no shape and though they often have empire waists they tend to hit the waist too high and causes the mid section to look bigger. They also often don’t have a large enough area for the boobies, leaving them either over flowing or unsupported.

Don’t get me wrong I’m all about the dress but, try something more fitted, not tight. Something with thicker straps so you can wear a bra properly, or a sexy low neckline and defined waist like lush chick America Ferrera! Ready to go shopping? I AM!

So until the next time...keep it Lush & Luxurious!
