Ponte Embellished Dress - bebeBLACK
The picture doesn't do it justice. Amazing fit
I went to bebe to exchange a dress that got amazing reviews online (black and bash lace lingerie looking dress) it was pretty but wasn't a home run. I grabbed this dress and the second I put it on it felt perfect. The length was classy and not too short, the bust extremely flattering and made me feel secure like I wouldn't bust out... But also enough room to throw on a wonder bra if I really wanted to do extra. I'm 27 so I value sexy but I'm over the extra short party dresses I have to hold on to or worry all night about. This is a wow factor dress, more than I planned on spending but the way I feel in it is worth it. I somewhat agree with the other comment about the sequins not being everywhere... But I think having the sequins only on top makes it better... And gives a perfect frame for your bust lol. And gives you room to throw on a gorgeous strappy sandal and accessories. It also made my butt look great and my tummy flat without me having to suck it in like the other dresses I've wore.
I'm 5'8 1/2 weigh 142, 34dd 25 waist and about a 38 hip and the Xsmall fit perfectly... Surprised it did seeing as how I just had my daughter I assumed I would be at least a small or medium.
But this dress is well made... Plain on the hanger and plain on the model above but much better in person and gives you room to do allot with shoes and accessories. But even studs would look nice.
I recommend getting a tan for an extra pop and color contrast against the white. And strappy silver shoe like the picture above or strappy jeweled heels.
Hope this helps! And I wouldn't have paid this price if I didn't love it! After trying this dress on I didn't even finish trying on the additional 6 dresses in my dressing room :) xoxo QB

I tried it on a whim when looking to exchange another dress and it is absolutely beautiful. The top is so intricate and almost fits like a bustier. I am completely in love with it, I just mildly wished the beading and sequins were pulled elsewhere on the dress.
