* Prices may differ from that shown
I absolutely love lipsy dressed. I love the fact that you can get hollywood/ catwalk glamour without the price tag. I bought this dress for £70.00 from the actual lipsy store. It comes in ana arrangement of colours including blue, purple and a white. The dress is made from a chiffon like material and comes in sizes ranging from 6- 16 which is again fantastic. Its very flattering on all shapes and hides all them tell tale lumps and bumps which everyone has. I love the fact that you cna actually wear a decent bra with this dress and not have to worry about everything being held in. The dress is very comfortable and is definately a must have. The dress is abit pricey but trust me its a definate must have and has been a good faithful to me on many nights out. I would reccomend this to anyone
When I was looking for a dress to wear for a friends birthday party I spotted this Lipsy dress on very.co.uk and fell in love with it straight away! It costs £70 which is about what I would expect to pay for a fancy dress like this to wear for special occasions.
The first thing to note is that the colour is very different from how it looks in the picture. It's actually a lot nicer! It's brighter and more of a 'gem' colour like a really nice jade green, it's an absolutely beautiful colour which would flatter most skin tones. It's also available in white and a dark blue colour.
It comes in sizes 6-18 and as I'm on the large side of a 10 at the moment I went for the size 12 to make sure it wasn't too tight and I found this fit perfectly. When I was first putting it on I thought it was going to be too small as it feels quite tight going on but once it's on you can see it fits great. The length is nice, I'm 5'6" and it's not too short on me that I couldn't wear it for a more upmarket do. The only thing to bear in mind is that because it's tight-fitting the skirt does ride up whilst you're walking in it so the length it looks when trying it on won't be the length it looks after wearing it for a while.
The overall look of the dress is stunning, it does look slightly different than in the picture, but doesn't everything when it's on a 'real' body instead of hanging off a model?! I'm not sure how well you can tell in the picture but one side is draped and the other is more fitted. The fitted side still looks quite loose on the model but in reality it's actually quite tight-fitting and more of a bodycon style (to get a better idea of what it looks like on take a look at the Lipsy website, their photo is much more true to life where fit is concerned). I've got a few bulges at the moment that I was worried might be obvious but the cut of the dress is actually very flattering and hides all my wobbly bits perfectly giving me a great sillhouette. The beading details at the waist are a nice touch that makes it a bit more special and just finishes the dress off.
The style of the dress is very versatile, it can easily be dressed up as a sexy outfit for a night out but at the same time it wouldn't look out of place at a wedding or anything that calls for a more sophisticated and less sexy style. The v-neck is not too low so it doesn't show a lot of cleavage, and on me it's not too short.
The material of the fitted bit of the dress is quite silky and slinky feeling, it feels lovely against the skin, whereas the draped side is chiffon and I was worried it might itch as it's a bit more rough feeling, but it doesn't at all. It feels really comfortable to wear even after hours in it.
It is handwash only so you can't just stick it in the wash with the rest of your clothes. It washes well with my usual handwash liquid and I just hang it up to dry and it dries with no creases at all. It looks and feels great quality and is definitely worth the money.
I had so many compliments on this dress when I wore it to the birthday party (and my boyfriend said my figure looked amazing in it!), and I've since worn it to 2 other occasions where I was asked by several people where I got it. I absolutely love it and I'll definitely wear it a lot more times yet!
