A carefree, summery silhouette, in our refined, sophisticated jersey viscose. Fitted bodice with boning for added support. Removable halter strap. Empire waist. Falls above knee; 21" from natural waist. Import. Machine wash.It comes in four colors: navy, dark charcoal, marine aqua (above and below), and papaya. I saw this dress online, and wasn't totally sure what I thought about it. My personal shopper brought it to me to try on, and in the color that I would have picked, too! So naturally, I had to try it on!
I tried this dress on in my regular alpha dress size, and I found that it fits true-to-size. The jersey material is the same as the Dressy Jersey Ruffle Dress - super nice and smooth, and with a little bit of weight to it.
The dress doesn't have a ton of shape to it, but I was glad to see that the dress is just as butt-hugging on the model as it was on me. I was a little unsure about the bit of cling combined with the bit of shapelessness on the bottom, but the top detailing really made this dress for me.
I think the mock-bandeau with the twist-front is a really cute and feminine touch. I think it elevates the dress from plain to sweet. With regards to the color, I think the color in my pictures is a little more true-to-life than the model pictures. I can't really put my finger on it, but I think the model pictures' color is a little more saturated, but either way, it is a nice, fun color.
The dress comes with a removable halter strap, which is a nice touch, too. Here it is without the strap.
I ended up taking this dress home. The color, material, and twist-front won it over for me. Normally, if I were even a little hesitant about something, I would ask The Boyfriend for his opinion, but he had parked himself in a chair and was playing a game on his iPhone, and was not available for decision-making.
What do you think? Do you like this dress? Do you own it? Do you like the twist-front? What is your favorite jersey dress?
