(Size Large) Pretty Party Dress

If you are looking for a simple, stylish, little black dress that will conceal tummy bulge, this is the one for you. Beware though: it is short, so a lot of leg will show.

extremely useful review
When Eden added all of the gorgeous Holiday items from Coquette, I was immediately drawn to the simply named Holiday Dress. Of course, I was drawn to it...you may remember my quest for the perfect Little Black Dress™. If this had been available at the time, I would certainly have grabbed it up right away. Still, since there is always the chance that such a dress may be of use in the future, I thought I would give it a try.

The Basics

The Holiday Dress is a perfect party dress...if you don't mind flashing a little cleavage and A LOT of leg. It is a mini dress, and yes, that does mean it is short. If you are a petite thing, like I am, this is not a huge problem, but if you are an Amazon goddess, you might want to take it under consideration. It is black, of course, and comes with removable, adjustable shoulder straps, so you can go strapless, if you have adequate boobage to hold the dress up (there is no elastic band to help in this area). Otherwise, the straps will be your friends. The cups are molded and lightly lined, which means you can get away with going braless, if you so choose.

From the right side of the dress, a layer of mesh drapes diagonally across the bodice and skirt. It is gathered on the left side at the waist with a black, satin bow topped with a cute, though plastic, snowflake-shaped gem. This gathering across the waist works well at hiding tummy flaws. The mesh is attached to the dress on both sides of the skirt and at the bottom hem, so there is less chance of it snagging on something in passing.

The material of the dress is 80% nylon and 20% spandex.

Sizing and Measurements

EdenFantasys offers this dress in three sizes: small, medium, and large. A small is intended to fit someone with measurements up to 36" in the bust, 28" in the waist, and 38" in the hips, with a cup size of B (dress size 4-6). A medium should fit someone measuring up to 38" in the bust, 30" in the waist, and 40" in the hips, also with a B cup size (dress size 8-10). A large is intended for someone measuring up to 40" in the bust, 32" in the waist, and 42" in the hips, with a cup size of C (dress size 12-14). Given the style of the dress and the materials used to make it, I decided to order the size large, even though my measurements (42-34-40) and cup size (D) are over the recommendations.

When I said before that the dress is short, I meant it. The length, without the shoulder straps, is 28" from top to bottom. As for other measurements, the dress is 18" across the bust, unstretched. It is 14" across the waist. It then widens to 21" at the bottom of the skirt. The cups are 9" across and 6" from top to bottom.

Packaging, Care, and Storage

The Holiday Dress arrived in a clear, plastic bag. It was hanging on one of Coquette's great padded hangers. It included a product tag that was safety pinned to the dress. The tag included multiple pictures of a model showing off the dress in various poses. The care instructions are to hand wash the dress, then hang it to dry. It is noted on the tag that, like many other Coquette items, the dress was made in China. For storage of the dress, the shoulder straps should be attached so that you may hang the dress on the included hanger.

Experience
I have to say, I love this dress. I find that the mesh gathers in a flattering way to hide my problem areas. It is a thicker material than some of the dresses I have picked up on Eden in the past, but I would still stick to black undergarments, just in case. It is styled in such a way that you can wear shapewear underneath it, though if it has a bra, it should be strapless. I can imagine that this would be very cute with a shrug or Bolero-type jacket.

Other than the length, I have no real complaints about this one. I am giving it a full five stars.
Follow-up commentary
I now have the perfect little sweater to wear with this when I don't want to show quite so much skin. It makes me like this dress even more!
