With Wonder & Whimsy Reviews Leota’s New Full-Figure Collection
Liz of With Wonder & Whimsy takes us through her experience wearing one of Leota’s new full-figure styles.
These are the sort of dresses that transition seamlessly from day-to-night, and with wrinkle-free fabrics, they’ll stand up to wash, wear, and travel.
The Nouveau Sheath caught my eye with its vibrant color palette, dolman sleeves, and v-neck in the back. You can also purchase it in sizes XS-XL for $138 here. Because the Nouveau Sheath is a straight-cut garment, I ordered a 2x to accommodate my tummy and hips, and it’s a great fit. It hits a couple inches above the knee on my 5’4″ frame.
The fabric is a smooth polyester jersey and is unlined. It comes with a matching sash in the same origami print. The print is what really sold me on this dress because it’s not something I’ve seen before. It almost looks like rainbow confetti exploding across the fabric, and it makes the dress feel especially festive and fun. The background is a dark teal that almost skews indigo depending on the light. The print comes in shades of eggshell, black, coral, and magenta.
