Rated 4 out of 5Â by roxy The city girl's LBD
Took a chance on this dress for my birthday and I'm very happy with it. It fits true to size, a 6 for me. I'm 34-28-38 with a 34D bust for reference. The top dots portion is made from rayon circles with shiny, snakeskin-like oval embellishments. The main body of the dress feels like a swimsuit -- a little plastic-y, a little slippery on the body, but helpful for skimming your shape without showing off imperfections. There is no lining despite what the product description says and the dress is shorter than I expected -- I'd say closer to 35" than 36". I'm 5'8" and it hit me well above the knee. Easy enough to wear a bra with, though the armholes are a little big so when your arm is raised the side strap of a bra may show. The fit-and-flare shape is fab for curves.
This dress is sure to survive a night running around town, hitting cocktail hour, various bars or smoky concert halls without taking all the smells with you. It came out of the shipping package somewhat wrinkled, steamed away pretty easily though.
