“Bolero Beachwear perfectly combines the tropical flavors of South Florida and the beautiful mix of people with high quality fabrics and figure-flattering cuts into an effortlessly chic collection of tops and dresses.  Combining her technical background creating costumes and clothes for the entertainment industry with a sizable dose of creativity and passion, Patricia McCaw, the owner and designer of Bolero, excels at designing beautiful clothing to fit and flatter a curvy figure.  Her expert understanding of proportions, her deft manipulation of patterns, and her obsessions with impeccable fabrics blend together to create superior garments which drape naturally over curves and last season after season.”

When I first got in touch with Patricia McCaw through Instagram I immediately noticed that her designs would fit my figure perfectly as she specializes in dressing curves. I can’t tell you how many times I have struggled finding a dress that would let the girls breathe, but still hug them the right way. As a curve model I have modeled for a variety of brands from all over the world and the issue I have found is that often times the fabric is too rigid or not stretchy enough. The minute I laid eyes on the Ponti Di Roma, it evoked Sophia Loren or movies like La Dolce Vita. I love its rich red color and the fact that the fabric was curve hugging but I didn’t feel crushed in my dress.

The Ponti Di Roma is available in four other colors, a gorgeous Green, Black , Plaid (in black and white) and  Navy. The size range goes from XS to 1XL. I wore an XL and could have easily sized down, as the waist fitted a little bit  too big for me. My current measurements are 43-33-46, so I would go by their size chart. One tip from me is to always make sure that the dress feels comfortable on, even if it is a little bit loose and get it tailored to your exact  measurements so that you get that perfect fit. The price point of $150 seems fair given the quality and the beautiful execution of the dress.

One of my favorite things in the Ponti Di Roma dress is the color, as well as the fit around the bust line. It is extremely flattering if you are busty. I adore the V neck and the fabric used is a soft jersey.  Other fabrics used are a blend of Rayon and Spandex for that extra stretch that our curves love. This dress is the perfect fit for an hourglass like mine and I love the contrast between the cinched waist and the circle skirt that allows a lot of twirling moments!

Styling Tip: Add a corset belt and matching red gloves to give the dress a chic rockn’roll look that will be perfect for the autumn/winter  season. Put on your red lipstick and red or black heels and you are good to go.
