Karina Chronicles

3 Generations in Karina Dresses

Based out of New York City and Canada, Cinny is the mommy to JR and Baby Pom. When not working or studying full time, she can be found working on Whirlwind of Surprises or cuddling with her hubby and playing with her dogs. She shines in the warm company of friends and family and  enjoys playing with her 3 little nephews.

Yes, it’s true and we’ve proved it! Karina dresses are really built for women of all sizes and almost all ages. At Karina Dresses, they are very proud of being dresses for women from ages 18-80. Well, we put that to the test during my recent Hong Kong trip!

No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a visit to my favorite grandmother. She’s the sweetest little old lady you’ll ever meet. One that would bend over backwards to help complete strangers. My brother and I hadn’t been able to visit and see her in years now. The last time my brother visited Hong Kong was a good 10 years ago.

Get this…to test out Karina dresses’ theory of dresses for anyone ages 18 to 80, we decided to dress up my grandmother, mother, and myself. Yes! All 3 generations in comfortable, easy wear, easy care feminine works of art. How’s that for testing it out? Grandma is 79 this year! 79! So I think she pretty much represents the 80 age range. Despite that, she’s always 18 at heart, equipped with the courage to go on roller coasters and rides with her grandkids.

You know…it was easy to pick out dresses with mom. Actually, I lied. It was kind of difficult since she liked so many of the styles and designs. We ended up just picking a bunch and saying well, you can try them all and take whichever one you like the most. With grandma though, we kind of had to make a decision and decide on a size for her ourselves. After all, I haven’t seen her in awhile and even mom wasn’t too sure on her size.

This is where Karina Dresses comes in so handy! Each size fits a range of sizes. For example, X/S usually fits sizes 0-4 and S/M fits sizes 4-8 (you should check for the different styles though). We ended up choosing a variety of dresses in sizes X/S and S/M. We figured at worst the S/M would just be a slightly looser fit on mom and I, but should be able to extend to fit grandma comfortably. The ease of sizing really helped with our decision making as you can see from my beautiful grandma’s portrait. Everything fit nicely and mom, of course, loved the tummy hiding properties. Grandma is a huge fan of comfy fabrics so I think we did her proud this time! X/S fit both mom and I gorgeously and the S/M was perfect for grandma, although as you can see, we all have different body shapes and sizes. I could wear both grandma’s and mom’s dresses with ease so it’d be easy for us to swap dresses. Karina truly is a company for frockstars, ages 18 to 80.
