Ruffled Hem Ottoman Dress
Attractive, curvaceous form, but texture is disappointing!
I bought this dress online the day it came out for the intention of wearing it to my college graduation. I also considered this dress because it's versatile to wear to work as well as going out. I am 5'3" and weigh 115 pounds and the length of the dress came to just above my knee. The description states that this dress is made from a "heavy stretch fabric", but I got to say that I was a little disappointed in the fabric when I got to actually feel its texture. It feels like a waistband material and is rough in texture, so I wasn?t too thrilled about that (if I was able to see it in the store and feel the texture I probably would have walked away from this one#. However, I do like the fit of the dress as it is very form fitting, appealing and accentuates the curves of your body. The ruffled hemline is what makes the dress! And since I would want the most honest review from someone, I am going to be honest here and say that if you have ANY "problematic areas" #in your stomach or hip area) then I wouldn't purchase this dress. I say this because I am a slim woman and it even shows my stomach a little more than I'd like. It doesn't suck you in like it says it's supposed to do. I would recommend the dress because it is cute, but I would be cautious of its form. To everyone: This is the type of dress that you have to try on before ordering. I would recommend trying it on in the store first before buying it. I hope this helps!
