“ Brand: Asda / Type: Dress with detachable necklace / Clothing Class: Evening Wear „
As Christmas approached I was filled with panic. Presents were bought and paid for, car was packed ready to go with my flatmate/bestmate and Colin the hamster to go stay at my parents but on the way I was filled with utter panic. My parents hate my dress sense and I didn't want to get in a row about my tops being too low cut or my skirts being up me bum and so I went into Asda en route and found a few bargains as there was a sale on (still is) and this was (is) reduced from £16.00 a dress to £6.00 and is in available sizes 8,10,12,14,16,18, 20, 22 and 24 and the option I chose was the black dress with silver detachable chain mail necklace and that was the only color option in the Asda store I was in but you can also get a white and grey feather patterned dress in the same style and for the same price from Asdadirect.com (as is the black dress I chose still available in most sizes at the time of writing this review).
This dress is simply lovely. As I have just stated I went for the black option which is a really deep, dark black and the dress is described as a maxi dress and of course has no sleeves and so the top of the dress looks vest like with wide straps wide enough to conceal most bra straps.
Made from 95% Viscose and 5% Elastane this is full machine washable and suitable for tumble drying and ironing (on a low heat setting) and is soft like jersey and not one bit see though. I wore mine a lot over Christmas and washed it alot and I found this to not one bit fade or or to start looking 'worn'.
The dress hangs off the hips and I as a woman that is 5.9 finds this to come to my mid ankle. I am also a size 10 and find this the perfect size for me as it slightly hangs off the hips instead of being fluid and skin tight and it does have a little give in it.
The top of the dress has a silver 'eye' to each side of it which are large. You get a necklace on black silk which is silver chain mail and hooped and large but not too heavy that you simply hook through those eyes and you tie it to the back if you want to. You don't have to wear the necklace of course if you don't want to and can dress it up your way or wear it plain for less formal occasions and it still can look lovely.
All in all I love this dress as its so versatile. Easy to care for, a nice fit and the neckline being high and the shoulders being rather revealed makes it rather unstated but classy and a wee bit sexy but still comfortable to wear. Plenty of sizes to choose from..... I'd snap one up whilst I could (like I did lol) whilst they are still on sale (for a limited time only!).
