Ladies. I'm going to keep this short.
YOU. NEED. THIS. DRESS.
The bandage material is so thick and stretchy it does the PERFECT job of holding you in, while accentuating your curves. This dress was so tight, I didn't wear a bra, instead I did my handy dandy swimsuit padding trick. For years I have been taking swimsuit padding out of my swim tops (usually a thin, flimsy pad) then I will try on the top I want to place the padding. I use body tape to adhere the swimsuit insert to the dress/top so it doesn't shift and BOOM, no "nipping" out.
Any ways this dress, perfect mermaid fit. It hits right at the knee with a gorgeous ruffle mermaid tail detail. I'm 5'7 and 126 lbs. I ordered this dress in an extra small and it fit like the glove I keep preaching it did.
Honestly, when I unzipped this dress, I felt like the zipper flung open and my body came flooding out. Kinda like what happens when cartoon characters pants button flies across the room because they're too big for their britches...but with a zipper. Needless to say, I was held in like a vacuum sealed pillow, or one of those mattresses you buy and it ships to your house in a box.
I wore this dress to a Labor Day Weekend wedding for an amazing couple. It was a hot one, but this dress was perfect for the occasion.
Styling this dress for a later fall wedding would work out really well with a long taupe or beige cardigan with matching shoes!
