Disadvantages: Sizing is a little off!
As it's now summer and I'm soon going on holiday, I wanted to buy some really nice summer dresses but with a reasonable price tag. I decided to hit Asda as the range of clothing is fantastic, with guaranteed quality for a very good price. They had many styles and variations to choose from, one that partially caught my eye was this simple yet gorgeous dress. I have recently become a huge fan of strapless dresses, as I find that flatter my figure beautifully and are just very girly.
The dress as you can see from the picture, is white with navy blue horizontal stripes. The top of the dress is slightly elasticated to give extra support, seeing as there are no straps, which prevents the dressing slipping or falling down. The dress is made from 50% Polyester and 50% Viscose. It is machine washable so there is no need to worry about the shape and colour being affected. I have approximately washed this about four times and it still looks brand new. I have also used the tumble dryer and the iron on the dress, which has not affected the dress in any way. The length is brilliant, ending just above the knee, showing enough skin looking flattering and girly, but not enough skin to make you look like your over doing it.
I absolutely adore this dress, as the style is so simple, yet looks very girly and elegant. The dress is extremely flattering, enhancing my curves in all the right places. It is very comfortable to wear, with the elastic not being too tight that it pinches your skin, but just enough to stop the dress from slipping down. What I also love about this dress is that when it reaches your hips, it flows out a little bit, perfect for hiding any lumps or bumps you may not want people to see or if your feeling slightly insecure about your body on a particular day. It is definitely high quality with double stitching in some places, making it feel very secure.
I was extremely pleased with my purchase, so pleased I went back to Asda and bought the same dress but with yellow horizontal stripes.
The only problem with this dress would have to be the sizing, so it would be hard to purchase online due to the fact if you went for your average size, you would most probably find that you had some extra room within the dress. Sizes available are XS, S, M, L and XL. I went for XS which was perfect for me, usually I would of gone for a small, but when trying it on, there was quite a bit of extra room and felt like it wasn't supportive enough. I would recommend buying in store, so you are able to try it on just to make sure. I bought this dress for £8, which I think is an absolute bargain! The high quality you are receiving and also the gorgeous design, is definitely worth the £8.
I can only estimate the sizing, going by my size as I'm not 100% sure;
* XS - 6-8
* S - 8-10
* M - 10-12
* L - 12-14
* XL - 14-16
I did buy this dress a few months ago, I have checked online and I cannot seem to find the dress, so I am not sure whether its just out of stock, or if it has been discontinued. At the time of purchase there were more colours and pattern designs in this style. All absolutely gorgeous and at £8 you can't go wrong.
Overall this dress is beautiful designed, with a very cheap price tag attached I would highly recommend! Very flattering, comfortable dress! A fantastic buy!
Summary: Great cheap, gorgeous dress! Definitely recommend.
