Bohemian Traders is a women’s clothing boutique in Australia and sells itself as being style for the “modern bohemian.”  The fact that Bohemian Traders offers extended sizes for curvy women is a huge plus for me. I am a firm believer that brands don’t need separate plus size lines, just more inclusive sizing. In this post I will review the Backless Maxi Dress in Russet | Bohemian Traders.

I’ve been stalking their site waiting for a sale so I could scoop up their Bloom Baby Bloom collection. I ended up also buying this Bohemian Traders Backless Maxi Dress in Russet  to get the free shipping. Yes, I am one of those people who would rather spend $300 to get free shipping than to just pay the shipping fee.  Free shipping at Bohemian Traders is $300 minimum to the US considering the boutique is in Australia. Totally worth it if you ask me. I now have three beautiful maxi dresses that feel high quality and capture my plus size bohemian style to a T.

Backless Maxi Dress in Russet | PLUS SIZE REVIEW

I purchased theBackless Maxi Dress in Russet in a 2XL. According to Bohemian Traders’ social media team, the bust measurement for this dress is 47.” I ended up paying full price for the Russet backless maxi because I just had to have it! I have a wedding coming up in September and I already know that this maxi dress is going to be perfect for Southern California wedding season. Formal wedding attire has never been my forte, however this dress has an air of elegance while still being ridiculously comfortable.
  • Linen material makes it very breathable
  • Gorgeous color
  • Quality craftsmanship
  • Drapes nicely over curves
  • Sleeves are a bit too long for me
  • Slightly see-through

I plan on wearing this dress to a wedding this season. There is a button inside the front of the dress that allows you to make the deep-v less plunging. The deep-v plunge neckline makes for a sexy detail that most plus size women don’t get to take part in due to their ample chests. I am determined to change that perception and show fat women that you can rock tasteful sideboob and feel cute as heck.

Bra options for Bohemian Trader Backless Maxi Dress in Russet

The purchase of this dress spawned off a mini obsession with finding braless alternatives. Review coming on those too (eventually). I tried the following breast lifting tactics to help me sport this dress:
In this shoot I am wearing the Booby Tape. Which is the greatest breast lifting technology I have every had the pleasure of using. Prior experiences with taping my boobs included industrial strength duct tape and painters tape. Booby Tape is also a company from Australia, which makes me think that Australia is just waves ahead of the US when it comes to plus size options for women.

Let me just tell you have pretty I felt in this dress. After I slapped on my Booby Tape, and drape the Backless Maxi Dress in Russet over me I couldn’t stop smiling. I twirled my way through the kitchen and even had my husband take me out for ice cream just so I could put this look to good use. There’s some next level confidence that comes when your boobs look great and you feel comfortable.  cheap ball dresses nz
