Shopping in Bloomingdales the other day, I happened upon a new section freshly stocked with cute, girly dresses that all looked itty bitty hanging on the racks. A group of sales associates were hovering around, commenting on how cute and tiny the dresses looked, and how the merchandise had just been put on the sales floor. So, of course, my curiosity was peaked, and I grabbed a few dresses to try on. The results…good!
I know…bad dressing room pics right? But the dresses really do fit well, right off the rack! These are both size UK6, which is the smallest size, since this is a European brand.
The first strapless dress fit wonderful up until the very top, where it was a little loose. If I were a little bustier, this dress would stay up better, but as it stands, I would need to either take the top in just a smidgen, or use some fashion tape to keep it up. The fit in the torso and hip was amazing though!
The second one-shoulder dress also fit amazing, and since it has a shoulder strap, I did not have the same problem with the top. I found the waist band to be a little low to me, but I have a short torso, so this is to be expected. A longer torso’d gal would look great in this dress.
The dresses I tried on were all polyester, but looking at other dresses in the line, there were also some cotton blends. Most are little party dresses in girly prints and fabrics, but a few could be styled more conservatively if need be. I didn’t see much in my style (I’m not very girly or frilly), but I was impressed with the fit, and will keep and eye on the brand in case anything pops up that strikes my fancy.
This line is new to Bloomingdales, and as of right now, not available on the website. Lipsy is, however, available on ASOS…which just so happens to be running a free shipping and returns special for the United States through the end of August. The only problem…I don’t see many size UK6!
