The Backstage Pleated Dress

I fell in love with this stunning dress the moment I saw it on Kathleen Barnes’ Instagram and the $45 price tag made it a very quick addition to my wardrobe. Yep, this stunner was just $45 (and comes in a two of other colors here and here if pink isn’t your thing). I hadn’t placed an order with Nasty Gal in years and I saw this as an opportunity to give the old brand a shot and filled my cart with everything my heart desired, delightfully at 50% off.

Now, this dress was stunning on Kathleen Barnes and most likely designed for the not so busty lady – something I should have considered before I checked out. But oh-well I loved it and was determined to make it work. Thankfully I included a set of nipple covers in my Nasty Gal order (a must with this dress) which helped with the first part of my busty issue, but the dress has zero support for the girls and is quite flowy on top. So in order to keep this dress safe for the public, I had to tape it down and keep the girls in check. This double-sided, medical-grade tape ensures a no-slip fit and prevents any wardrobe malfunctions when wearing daring, more revealing styles – insert the backstage pleated dress. The tape is $16 and will save you for the rest of your life! #TrustMe
