karina dresses review + giveaway : cynosure : love + inspiration by sui solitaire

Behind the scenes here at cynosure, I occasionally receive offers from sponsors and companies interested in spreading their message to fearless warriors like you. Unfortunately, most of them seem to not actually read cynosure, since I’ve had a couple people contact me to promote cellulite removal and cosmetic surgery.

When Karina Dresses contacted me, however, it was different. Karina launched her company with the vision of creating dresses for “every woman”– every body, literally. Of course, I loved that philosophy, since cynosure‘s mission includes helping every person, regardless of gender, love their body– and wearing clothing that truly hugs every inch of your body the way you deserve.

Karina loves making dresses that celebrate women of all ages and sizes, and they’re all made with love in small batches and limited edition prints in Brooklyn. Since their batches are unique, the prints and styles differ by the day. Dressmaking with care and attention to uniqueness– love that 🙂 They even went further and actually talked with me on the phone about how both our missions of body-love collide, and offered to help me move when I go to NYC next year!

Instead of merely asking me which dress I liked, they asked me about my body type and which dress style I preferred. They sent me the Audrey dress to review.* As you can tell, it’s red and fabulous. The fabric is comfortable and stretchy, made from imported microfiber blend fabric. It also flatters my figure. There’s a dress style for practically every unique body shape and size!

What I love most about the dress is how comfortable it is. It’s flowy and I feel like I could both hike for hours (because that’s what I do in dresses) or walk around town in it. It also stretches to accomodate weight fluctuations (awesome!) and doesn’t wrinkle… which is cool because I’m super lazy about folding clothes properly or ironing. 😉
