Colleen writes, "I'm totally in love with the chevron trend. I'm looking for a spring break/summer time dress to wear to visit my long distance boyfriend who is lives in Jamaica. I love anything teal and/or coral. The more color, the better. I'm busty and very curvy (around size 12), so preferably without spaghetti straps and I will definitely need to be able to wear a bra. I've found a few I liked, but either don't have a size L or I'm not sure of the material. Any ideas?? Thanks so much!"
