~ ~ Introduction ~ ~
I order regularly from asos.com and I am very happy with the offered service, the variety and the quality of the products. I usually buy dresses, accessories and handbags and I always find great offers on the products that I like. I purchased this dress two weeks ago, for £15.75 (the RRP was £35.00). I had a 50% discount from the original price plus an extra 10% off that I got using a promotional code from their promo e-mails. Currently, it is on the "up to 70% off" sale and it costs only £12.00.
The dress is available in 5 colours: black, cream, pink, green and neon red. The available sizes are from UK 6 to UK 18 but some sizes and colours are already sold out. The black and the neon red versions were my favourites but my size wasn't available in red. So I ordered size 10 in black colour. According to my measurements and the size guide, I should be wearing UK 12 because I have wider hips but my real size is 10 for all the dresses that I've purchased so far.

It is a sleeveless black dress with lace details from the ASOS collection. It has a loose fitting on the top and the skirt is in A-line. However, it can be worn with a thick waist belt to create an even more flattering slim waist.
The top of the dress is covered with black lace. The lace has a beautiful embroidered floral pattern and a black strapless fabric section is attached under the front lace layer, from the bust until the waist line where the skirt starts.
The back of the dress has the same sheer lace design, leaving the skin uncovered underneath. The lace fabric is semi-transparent, light and flimsy so I am wearing the dress with a skin-tone bra in nude shade.
The skirt is double layered. The external layer is a black sheer mesh and there is also a polyester inside lining in the same colour. The inside lining is a bit shorter than the overlaying mesh.

Product Code: 150313
The top main body of the dress is made of 100% Nylon and the skirt is also made of 100% Nylon. The lower part lining is made of 100% Polyester. Although it's synthetic, the material is very soft and comfortable.
The care label says that it should be washed with similar colours in the washing machine and it should be ironed on the reverse side.
~ ~ My opinion ~ ~
I bought this dress because this cutting flatters my silhouette and because the lace is a top style in the winter's fashion trends. When my order arrived, I was really pleased with the nice design and the fit.
The loose fitting is easy to wear and a "safe" choice for me when I shop online, because I am confident that it will look nice on me. I have small waist and wider hips, so this dress fits well on my body type and makes my figure look thinner. Additionally, it's reasonably priced and I am definitely going to wear it a lot this winter.
The dress slips in and out very easily. The waist line is elastic and it doesn't have a zip closure. The length of the dress is great, it's not too short or too long for an evening dress and it's ideal for a Saturday night out or a party. The sheer lace design on the back is very sexy and elegant, and it puts my back on show in a classy way. Also, the cutting is great and the dress is very beautiful and comfortable.
I wore the dress on Friday night at my friend's birthday party and I think it was really pretty because I had some nice compliments. :)
~ ~ Summary ~ ~
I think it's a beautiful dress, appropriate for different body types because of the loose fit. It's a great dress for my nights out and it can also be worn in formal occasions if it's styled with the right accessories, shoes and a glamorous updo hairstyle. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and this dress has earned 5-stars from me!
Thank you for reading!
