Calypso Dress

Babysugar Diaries: A Wrinkled Dress You Need Not Press

There are many reasons why I'm not thrilled about carting a bevy of sun dresses across the country for back–to–back weddings that I'm attending. Aside from carrying my daughter around airports, heavy loads aren't recommended for pregnant ladies. And even though maternity dresses have improved in recent years, I still don't love to spend loads of money on dresses that only last me a few months.

That's why I ADORE the Julia dress ($195) from Calypso. The non–maternity silk dupioni wrap dress has been worth every single penny I paid for it. (Tip, some colors are on sale for $135 right now!) The flirtatious frock can be worn in various ways; as the original wrap dress or tied up in the more popular prego–friendly fashion pictured above. This garment worked wonders for my nursing postpartum figure, my slimmed down stressorexic physique and my current expectant state.

The dress requires minimal upkeep. After wearing, you can just toss it in the washer and hang it to dry with wrinkled creases and all. For vacations, you can throw it in your suitcase for safe keeping. The crinkled silk look reflects the shine and beauty of the colorful fabric.

I just happened to buy a few of these at Calypso's outlet store in SoHo..they had a few colors left and at 7 mos pregnant, I don't like maternity clothes and Calypso has been a staple for me forever! You may want to call them. On Broome Street (sadly, across from the late Heath Ledger's place). I don't know if they ship. They also have some cute eyelet dresses, tunics and other things for us gals.

I couldn't find where any colors were on sale. :( Am I looking in the wrong spot? They look like they'd be a great summer staple!

I love the casual/beachyness of the Calypso dresses - they are a staple in my summer wardrobe for the exact reasons you say - because they travel well and always look chic!

I don't think I would be able to wear anything in that material. It would drive me nuts. I don't think anything should actually be made with a wrinkled look, especially not purposely. YUCK.
