“ Brand: Miss Selfridge / Type: Casual Wear „
I love to buy clothes and when I see a good discount come up, I cannot refuse. Miss Selfridge is my favourite shop and I was needing something new to wear on a night out so just looked to see what was on the website. I have always found nice body's but never really thought about buying one, however when I saw this one on the website, it looked gorgeous, I was already imagining what outfits I could wear it with. Miss Selfridge have a really good range, very on trend and affordable at the same time but good quality, really they have it all and usually their sizing is good so needless to say, I put this one in my basket and eagerly awaited its arrival.
This body is all black and has a see through mesh panel going across the chest which is also black and makes it quite sexy. This is like a vest top at the top without sleeves and has muted gold sequins all around the chest area and up to the top of the straps, it is very pretty and glamorous looking and it comes in size 8-16. It is a scoop back which is really nice as it is so covered at the front that it is a nice contrast and it has been well thought out. This body is made of 92% viscose, 8% elastane and it is machine washable also. It looks great and some body's can be hideous but this one is very stylish looking and versatile which is why I bought it.
MISS SELFRIDGE SEQUIN MESH BODY
When this body arrived, it looked quite thin but once I put it on, the fit was perfect, I ordered it as my dress size not my top size so a 10 and it was great fit. It is quite high at the bottom but I wouldn't wear it alone so this is ok. The material is nice and stretchy and the sequins are more of a rusty gold but it looks good as they aren't too flashy which I liked and they were sewn in very well. The scoop back looks really good on this with the front being quite high but the mesh front looked good on this. It is quite high at the front but the mesh is right down to the neckline on the front and it works well, I like this bit as it makes it stand out even more.
So, what I also love about this body is that it is versatile and can be worn with a number of things, it can be worn with shorts and heels, jeans or even a skirt and it looks great. I have worn this with a skirt the last few times and it looks good as a whole outfit, you can match this with a lot and don't need too many accessories as the sequins add enough glamour to it. It is comfortable on and I found the material great to wear, I would recommend wearing the right bra with this, black and not one that is too high as you don't want it being visible under the mesh or it'd look a bit tacky. If the right bra is worn then it'll work perfectly with this outfit.
In terms of washing this, I found this easy, they recommend it is machine washable and it is but I find when anything has sequins on it that I will always do it on a delicate wash as I don't want to risk it getting damaged. This is not to be tumble dried for obvious reasons, I always hang it up to dry and it comes up good as new, just be careful with the mesh as if it was to get a slight tear, it'd ruin the whole outfit and that would be ashame. The sequins are so well sewn in that I haven't had any issues with any falling off which has been great. I couldn't think of any other faults but so far I have worn it a few times and haven't had any problems yet.
This body is great and if you are confident to wear it then it will look great on. It is a fun piece to pair with quite a number of different bottoms to create a lot of different looks. I'd say this was an item more for night time but if you want the day would be fine too but the mesh panel makes it quite fancy for the daytime. It is for any age maybe more younger though as the kind of look would suit a younger age best. The sizing is great with Miss Selfridge and I have never had any problems, for the price I paid this is great and I love to wear this out. It works with so many different looks and the material quality is really good too.
This item can be purchased at Miss Selfridge stores and online, it is currently £15 on sale and the website only has size 16s left but if you try your nearest store you may get another size.
