The May Swing Dress in Black Cherry is a bright bold pop of juicy cherries with a flattering vintage inspired design. May features a V-neck wrap top design tapering to a belted waist and a generous full circle skirt. I am wearing a size18 here. The fit is good overall but I feel that the bodice is a bit loose on me and since the material has a fair amount of stretch, I could have easily gone a size down. The Dolly and Dotty dress fit is generous compared to many UK brands I have encountered. The dress included both a white and black fabric belt to match and I love this addition because it lets you make the decision which color belt you would prefer with your dress.
The skirt is a full circle with plenty of twirling potential! I am wearing the Malco Modes Jennifer Petticoat in Red with my May dress here, it looks lovely and adds a nice shape to the skirt but the material drapes nicely even without a petticoat. This skirt is definitely large enough to accommodate a larger crinoline or petticoat, depending on your fullness preference.
