Simple, sleek and clean design. Light, comfortable and easy to wear. Not too short or too long. Not overly girly or sexual. All features that I look for in a casual everyday summer dress.
It comes in at the waist and looks great from the front. Really flattering. I like the shape at the bottom of the skirt and the design of the straps, these are really nice details that give a plain black dress an alternative twist. I also appreciate that the straps don't require fastening/tying.
The only let down, is from the side view the dress really comes out a long way over the tummy. To skim over the tummy rather than cling is very flattering as it hides any lumps and bumps, but this doesn't skim just above, it really sticks out a long way. Unfortunately, it ends up making your stomach area look like it comes out much further than it actually does, as if you have a pregnant bump under there. It's much like those tops that used to be in fashion around 9 years ago that made every female look like she was 4 months pregnant. While this may not be a problem for some people, it's not something I am comfortable with. The problem is the point at which the skirt begins is far too high. If it were lower so that it started to flare out just below the belly button it would have been far more flattering. It could be that a smaller size would have helped also so that it didn't come out so far, but a size S was the smallest this dress went down to (I'm 5'4" and usually wear an 8-10). The size was otherwise OK.
The other issue of lesser importance is that where I am big chested, the sides of my bra cups were exposed where the material isn't quite wide enough on the chest. Not a big deal if you have a smooth, plain black bra that would blend in with the dress though. Being bigger busted I do not have the option of going braless.
It's a real shame, if it wasn't for the first issue, this dress would have been just what I was looking for. I would really like more alternative dresses that aren't overly girly/teen looking (I've hit my 30s now) or 1950's style (not my taste) to wear on summer days. Preferably also that cover the chest so that it's appropriate for said daytime use.
