I was rounding out a recent Nordstrom Rack order as they had the cheapest price on a new Elomi bra in my size when I found this smocked top for spring/summer. Smocking/smocked are some of my favorite keywords to find full bust friendly clothing.

I tried out this top in a red floral and a black and white polka dot. This top from Max Studio sells for $26.97. It also comes in the colors below in sizes XS to XL.

First, I tried the red floral. I did not like the way this top looked from the back and the print is a bit boho for me. You can also see my bra strap peeking out on my back.

I liked the top in black and white polka dot and considered keeping it.

This top can also be worn off the shoulder. I’ve stayed away from off the shoulder tops and dresses thinking it would accentuate my broad shoulders and fuller bust – but it looks great. I will definitely pursue this style in the future.

I did not end up keeping either of the tops. I am working to only buy clothing items that I know I will wear and keep for an entire season and this top felt like something I would wear 2-3 times. I am wearing an XL in all of these pictures. I am 5’7 and my measurements are 49-38-44 inches. Please note that Nordstrom Rack charges a $5.95 return shipping fee.

What are you buying for Spring?
