As you guys know, I just celebrated a birthday a few weeks ago. And for my usual birthday lunch date with hubby, I was on the search for a cute, affordable dress to wear. So when I was contacted by Sammydress.com to review an item from their site, I was elated! The timing couldn't have been more perfect!
In case you aren't familiar, Sammydress.com is an online supplier of on-trend fashion and accessories based out of China. They ship internationally and have tons of items (lingerie, dresses, cosplay costumes, you name it!) for very affordable prices.
In my browsing of the site, I opted for this stylish round collar sleeveless bodycon knit bandage dress. It seemed conservative enough, as I didn't want to show too much cleavage or thigh. And I was hoping the fabric and cut of the dress would be forgiving, as my post-baby body is still a work in progress :-)
When the dress arrived, I must say I was pleased with my choice. The dress was identical to the photo on the site. And from using the handy sizing chart on the site, I would say my dress was very true to size. I was reluctant to try it on, as it is a bodycon dress and I was afraid it would be super tight-fitting. Much to my surprise, it wasn't. The cotton and polyester material of the dress was very breathable, and comfortable to move around in. I was winning, so far!
Now I don't know about you ladies, but when I'm trying on dresses in stores, I always "sit" or strike a sitting pose in the dress if there is no seating available. I stay going out to eat somewhere or on a movie date, so I wanted to make sure that the dress was comfortable while sitting as well as standing.
Another win for Dre! And since hubby loved the dress as well, it looks like this baby was a winner all around! What do you guys think?
Overall, I loved how well the dress fit. The site's information was very accurate, as the dress was true to color, silhouette, and size. I was also very impressed with the quality of the dress, especially for the low price point. One thing that I will point out about this dress, is that it can be tricky for women who have an ample chest. I think the black banding of the dress is supposed to fall right under your breasts, but mine clearly does not. So ladies, please keep in mind that your overall body shape will affect the way the dress fits your frame. It may not look the same on every body, but it is quite flattering, if I say so myself.
