Top critical review
March 28, 2018
I followed the directed chart to get the dress that would best fit me. I'm normally a small, and like my clothing close fitting, so I trusted the chart and I picked a size slightly smaller than my measurements, expecting the fabric to stretch, which was a medium. THIS DRESS HANGS OFF ME. Via the measurements on the chart, my bust was an inch bigger and my waist was two inches bigger. When laying the dress flat I get a waistline of 17 inches and a bust of 19 inches, so that's four inches bigger in the waist and two inches bigger than the bust than what the chart says. I read that there's 0.4-0.8 inch difference in measuring, but this is 2-4 inches that's huge. It's the huge waistline that makes it not look like the picture at all. I'm torn whether or not to by the size small because I think that might be too big as well. I'm a 34 DD and my boobs couldn't fill this dress. The neckline is also really high, I'm not a girl who shows off my boobs but you'd expect a bit of cleavage in this dress, I even put on my push upiest of bras and you could see NOTHING. Also this dress doesn't do a good job of covering bra straps.
I find it weird that most of these reviews say get a size up and I get a dress that is GINORMOUS. I should have ignored the chart and got the size I would have normally gotten, a small.
I was excited for this dress, I even ordered a crinoline slip to give it some volume, and to have the sizing so off was pretty devastating. I should know better than to order clothing off of vtraveler.net, $30 cute dress was too good to be true.
