“ Brand: Select „
For a while now I have been very in to wearing dresses, as when I was younger I used to dress casually all the time even for special occasions as I wasn't very into fashion and I didn't think my figure could pull anything else off. Since losing weight, I have found that I love to dress for my shape and really make the most of my womanly curves. So I started buying skirts, dresses and tighter clothing to emphasis my figure.
I bought this dress from select as the polka dots caught my eye immediately and it just looked so girly and feminine. I bought this for £18.99 earlier this year and I thought it was such a fantastic price as for dresses I never tend to go over the £20 price bracket as I think for high quality that is a reasonable enough price for me. So to find out it was under my price bracket was fantastic and I couldn't get it home quick enough. I think this has now dis-continued as I did buy it a while ago and looking on their website I cannot find it. But wanted to do a review just in case it does tend to pop back up again. The dress is also made from 100% viscose.
The picture for this review isn't great so I will try to give as much detail as possible so you can get a general idea. The dress is a dark navy colour and has white polka dots scattered all over the dress. It is sleeveless but does cover your shoulders so if you have broad shoulders like myself it truly makes them look amazing and has a lovely ruffled effect. The length of the dress is perfect to me not to short so you don't show your behind, but short enough to show a little flesh and look very feminine. The dress is quite low cut so does show off your cleavage, but not enough to look like there falling out.
I like lower cut tops as I like my cleavage and I think showing a little off never does any harm. Underneath the chest there are 3 small beige buttons, which can be undone to reveal more cleavage, personally I wouldn't recommend this if you have larger breasts like myself as I do feel uncomfortable that to much is showing, I believe that undoing one button is safe but anything past that is a little uncomfortable as I like the support. The dress is fairly figure hugging yet very comfortable around the chest and waist which is brilliant and it emphasis your curves exceptionally well, it also flows out a little below your waist so it hides any lumps and bumps and give the illusion of a skinnier waist which is gorgeous.
I have to say this is one of my favourite dresses, I never get bored of wearing it as it always looks great and really makes my figure look to die for which is what every woman wants. I love the dress particularly as it shows just the right amount of flesh with out being OTT and just looks beautiful. The pattern is superb, as I'm not one for patterns I'm quite surprised I went for this dress but as it caught my eye I just had to treat myself. It can be worn for any occasion whether its a summers day or a special occasion or even hitting the town at night, it always looks great and never looks out of place. Its perfect for what I need and I highly recommend this!
Overall a beautiful dress worth every single penny, if you're looking for something girly, feminine and to emphasis your curves then this is perfect! Love it!
For as long as I can remember Ive wanted a polka dot piece of clothing. Originally I wanted a coat for the winter but since the weather has been so lovely recently I decided to look around for a playsuit or a dress with a polka dot pattern - harder than it seems believe me! So when I was shopping in town a few weeks back and I found this 'Select Polka Dot Dress' I wanted to buy it straight away - it was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. But they didnt have my size :[ - thankfully when I logged into their website as soon as I got home they had one left in my size so I bought it straight away and Ive been wearing it quite a bit ever since - we dont get this kind of weather in Brum very often so I like to make the most of it!
Stockists: Select & selectfashion.co.uk
Sizes: This dress is only available in sizes 12 & 14 online - more choices MIGHT be available in store.
Other Info: Contrasting button detail on the front, ruched pleating on the back, fastened with a bow around the waist & this is made from 100% viscose - so its better to handwash this item OR wash it on a very low setting, alone in the machine which is how Ive chosen to do it.
I know the picture with this review isnt amazing BUT if your buying online like I did you wont be disappointed - the design and colour are exactly the same in reality as they are on the image so what you see is what you get. Now as I was buying this online I didnt want to take a chance of it not fitting me so I opted for my average size which is a 10 and while that does fit without being too loose I wish I had gone for a size smaller - so buy one below your average size in this dress and it should fit like a dream - and make you feel skinnier at the same time, bonus!! The dress as you might have guessed is a very dark navy in colour and covered with small white polka dots all over - the material feels very cotton like and light so in this type of weather its just what you need. Its stylish and you wont be sweating conkers while wearing this as it keeps you very cool and its quite loose and flowing - a perfect dress and material for summer in my opinion which is why Ive been wearing it so much lately.
The cut of the dress I think is really nice as it is half girly and half clingy - the bottom os very loose and flowing so it covers any lumps and bumps you may wish to hide but its still short enough to look girly and so you dont feel so covered up. The sleeves are cut off in style and are slightly ruched which is the one part in not 100% keen on - Im not usually a fan of ruched patterns but I think in this case it makes the design look much better so I cant complain too much. The front is the one bit which is made for showing off as on me personally this dress show quite a bit of clevage - not in an OTT or slutty way but it saves this dress from making you look like a little girl at a tea party - it shows just enough off without fear of it all falling out or looking too OTT. Just underneath the chest is the 3 small beige buttons - which can be undone to reveal a bit more boob if you like that look BUT I personally think Id be hanging out if I undid them, however its nice to have the option I suppose.
There is also a ribbon and bow around the front and fastened at the back of this dress which makes the design even nicer and even more girly in my opinion - although again you can remove that if you want to wear a waisted belt which I tend to do quite a lot, its nice to have the option to remove it if you wish. The design is stunning I think and perfect for the kind of weather we are having at the moment wether that be day or night wear. I mainly wear this in the day with flat shoes or sandals but Im wearing it to the pub tonight with heels and heavy make-up and from what Ive seen that will work just as well so this is a summer dress for nightime as well so its quite versatile. The colours are also quite neutral so this can be worn with any colours - my personal favourite is bright red as that gives it a lovely nautical look. I cant recommend this dress highly enough - its fitted yet loose and flowing, keeps you cool on the hot weather, has a gorgeous design & its versatile. What more do I need from a dress?
Thanks For Reading.
