What makes the Print Strapless Bubble Top by Rachel Pally so special is definitely the print! It's quite pretty from far away, but when you see it close up, it's actually a rather intricate design. It has banding and pleating at both the top and bottom hems, and it's also available in a camisole as well as in different colors.
