It is an odd dress. In the online store picture it looked like this:
I actually really like the idea of having a good piece of clothing in different colours. For me, the trouble is actually knowing when I come across a versatile piece. I know what I like, but it is hard for me to predict whether an item will be worn enough to justify the investment of buying it in multiple colours. Sometimes the oddest thing becomes a wardrobe staple, sometimes even a timeless classic ends up staying at the back of your wardrobe.

Regardless of the insane pressure to be thin in today's world, it seems that even the thin are supposed to have curves, real or fake, in order to pass for a real woman. If women don't have curves, they at least ought to want them. It makes me sick that women and girls are brain-washed in this way, but I am very happy that the voices of women like myself have finally been heard. It is bad enough to go through your teenage years as the flat girl, only to grow up to realise that hardly anyone actually wants you to be happy with your small breasts. Women come in different shapes and sizes, and the option to love one's body should always exist, regardless of what one looks like. A huge chunk of the underwear industry seems to think that it is okay to make small-breasted women feel like they don't have enough to be real women. Well, Victoria's Secret can take their multi-padded and super-boosted bras to those who want them. I am taking my business elsewhere.
