When I first discovered Hell Bunny, I was immediately drawn to the May Day dress in blue floral. Luckily for me, JBR Clothing had just taken on this line of clothing so I made sure to put in my request for this beauty. It sold out almost immediately, the May Day is a stunning number perfect for summer!
Available in SM to 4XL, Blue or Black Floral Print – MSRP $74USD
Becoming more and more familiar with Hell Bunny sizing, the May Day definitely fits true to size since there is no elastic back panel like their other halter dresses. I went with a Medium and it fits perfectly in the bust (36) and waist (29). The lovely floral print is made from stretch cotton, but do not be fooled by the name…there is minimal stretch in this material. The May Day features a soft sweetheart neckline with halter straps and matching belt.
Unlike most Hell Bunny swing dresses, the May Day looks fabulous sans petticoat. I much prefer the Olivie and Vanda dresses with a full petticoat to complete the look but the May Day stands alone without a doubt. The matching belt features small grommets and the side loops help keep it perfectly in place. Who doesn’t like to show off their cinched in waist?
As I mentioned earlier, there was no need to alter this dress at all. The length was perfect, even though I am only 5ft 4iches. You can dress it up with a pair of kitten heels or go for a casual day look with ballet flats. I can definitely say this is one outfit I will be wearing to work this summer, paired with a cute button up white cardigan.
My obsession with this brand of clothing is only growing stronger and stronger with every fabulous purchase. There has not been one dress that I haven’t loved and the fit is always spot on. Not having to pay for costly alterations is always a huge bonus! Which dress should I try next ladies?
