I Love Isla, the All-New Cross Back Dress from LuLaRoe | Fit, Feel, & Sizing Review
If you have ever wished for the adult version of the LuLaRoe Mae kid's dress, the all-new LuLaRoe Isla cross back dress is the dress for you! An adorable style with pockets and darling details, you're sure to fall in love with the LuLaRoe Isla.
The brand new LuLaRoe Isla cross back dress comes in three incredible materials: hacci, leggings material, and terry material. The LuLaRoe Isla also features nice deep front pockets, an elastic hemline, and flirty slits up the side.
Now let's take some time to talk about LuLaRoe Isla cross back dress sizing, especially for plus-size fit. I am a 20/22/24 in regular department store clothing, and typically purchase size 2 or 3 in Torrid styles and a XL/2X/3X in LuLaRoe styles, both dependent on cut and fit. I am also 5'9" if that helps! And a 42-44 DD across the chest. So, according to the LuLaRoe Isla size chart, I should in-between an XL & 2X.
At my current size, I run in-between sizes a lot.
In the LuLaRoe Isla, I definitely prefer my smaller size of XL. Trying on the 2X LuLaRoe Isla, I found the bigger size was too long and too roomy in the top.
However, I must note that I am an apple shape and carry all of my weight in the middle.
It's possible that those with more ample bottom halves will prefer true to size in this dress.
As for me, I prefer my "size down" size.
