In seersucker, cheesecloth, linen or cotton, the beauty of the shirred dress is that it fits everybody (and every body) like a glove. Whether you have big boobs or itty bitty titties, are tall, short, plus-size or petite, the shirred dress will keep everything in place. The best part? You can forego a bra thanks to its snug fit. Goodbye, sweaty summer underboob.
While cult labels including Reformation, Faithfull The Brand and Ganni are leading the pack with floral, checked and printed iterations, the high street has stepped up with shirred dresses perfect for Sunday strolls, sun-soaked cocktails and everything in between.
