Mini Shift Dress
Mini Shift Dress so lovely. I am 5’4″, 190 lbs, have a big butt, and wear a 38DD. I got a XL in the blue floral, black floral, light blue floral, and red begonia. Ultimately, none of these were what I needed for a winter Midwest wedding, so they got returned. I would have kept the blue floral for sure, but it wasn’t in the budget to keep that with the dress I wore to the wedding.
The black floral seemed mostly black- the pattern wasn’t on the fabric as much as I’d like. The blue floral was gorgeous! It was my favorite, and it closer to a navy base than dark blue. The red begonia was my second favorite and was a nice red- darker than the photo in the listing. I think the photo looks kinda hot pink, but this was a true red. The light blue floral was my third favorite.
The color was very true to the photo, and the print wasn’t overwhelming or scarce.
The fabric is kinda a chiffon/waffle texture which shocked me a bit because the photos look like a smooth fabric. The print was also very nice and not pixelated like other floral dresses I have bought. Each dress had a slip that was sewn to the bottom on the side seams to keep it from riding up.
The neck wasn’t low cut at all- I have a large bust and almost none of it showed. It hit around the top of my knee. The sleeves were just past the elbow, and the opening wasn’t too big but could catch on stuff since it’s not fitted. I have larger arms and struggle with stuff being too tight on them, but the elastic at the top wasn’t too tight at all.
I also struggle with tightness on the armpit in dresses, but not this one! It was nice and loose in the armpit which allowed for some freedom in movement. It was also very flattering to my body shape which is like a slightly chubby hourglass. Overall I loved most of these dresses, but I couldn’t afford to keep them all unfortunately. I’d recommend them!Promised Review By IMT
