I received this dress for review to give my honest opinion, which I did. This post contains affiliated link.
I think I look very classic in this dress, it fit exactly as I expected and honestly had more give than I did expect so that was an additional perk. I am a larger girl, about size 16-18 depending on the dress so I ordered XXL, I could probably have gotten into a XL to be honest however by the amount of give in the fabric, which of course is a major perk. Who wouldn't want to order a smaller size right? I am glad I did get the XXL however because I am also nearly 6 foot tall so it would have been a bit shorter than intended if I hadn't. With the scalloped breast region it gave me plenty of room for my above average chest which is honestly the last thing I expected. Most dresses in this style don't compliment the well endowed ladies at all and you are usually fighting a dress malfunction every other breath. The neckline on this is high enough that you can easily wear this to any cocktail party and people will speak to your face. I think when I wear this out to a nice dinner with the boyfriend I will probably add a belt or something to give a bit of contrast as the solid black does give a bit of a funeral dress sort of vibe, but since it's a solid any accessory will brighten this up easily and will give just that little bit more of dimension. Overall for the genre which I am huge fan of this is the most modest of my collection and I am glad to have it, not all Rockabilly needs to be revealing and if I want to "sex" it up a bit some curls, heels and fishnets will more than do the trick.
One thing I also like very much about these dresses is the affordability, I have bought several in this style over the last year and had to wait until they were on sale as the price is significantly higher than I am use to. With the price under 30$ with shipping its significantly lower than other outlets for similar dresses and from my personal experience it's similar in quality.
