Stretch lace long sleeve mini-dress - mini dress by Fantasy Lingerie - review by mistressg

Like, not love, this lace

I have had this mini dress on my wishlist since it became available on EF, so I was very eager to review. Though it did not wow me as much as I had thought it would. I'm sure I will wear it out in public, but I'm not sure that it will get as much use as I had thought.

extremely useful review
This mini dress is available in 2 sizes - the XL, which I have, and One Size. This one costs $19.99, the One Size is $15.99.

Here is the packaging it came in:
Front:

Back:

Packaging inside of box:



According to the tag on the plastic packaging, this dress is 100% nylon and is made in Taiwan. "Machine wash warm, gentle darks seperately, tumble dry low, remove promptly do not wring or twist."

The thong that it comes with is surprisingly cute. I don't really like thongs at all, even though I used to wear them all the time. But being that I have gotten a lot of pieces of lingerie that come with a thong and the thong is made of some weird stiff black fabric that not only, I really liked the look of this one upon taking it out. It actually matches the mini dress! It is made of the same lace, which I like. I don't think g-strings look very flattering, but this one seems comfortable enough.

There is no tag at the neck to tell the front from the back. The fabric is pretty stretchy. Typically a wear a large, but this fits me well enough. If I was an XL it would probably fit be better, which makes me wonder how I would fit into the One Size. When I first put this on, I thought the fabric was a bit rough, but I have sensitive skin, and I didn't notice it as much after a few minutes.

Also, the sleeves have thumb-holes, which I happen to like. Personally, I like thumbholes in clothing sometimes, but I know some people can't stand them. The sleeves however, I wish were hemmed a bit better. They are a bit long, and I folded them under about a 1/2 inch when I put it on and I thought it looked more pulled together.

Close-up of fabric (I'm wearing a white tank top underneath):



The neck isn't very flattering I don't think. I expected it to be a little bit longer, even though I tend to wear low cut tops. I think the neck looks a little awkward and a little bit loose. I think this would be fine to wear out with a white slip or something underneath. I am probably going to wear it as a tunic with my white tank top underneath and a pair of pants. I expected it to fit more like it fits the model in the photo and I can't say it really does, so I'm not as happy with it as I thought I would be.
Follow-up commentary
I guess I still like this, but I still don't love it. If based on my review, you love it, then go for it and you'll be getting exactly what you see. I say that "I don't like it anymore" because I have not found an appropriate time to wear it or anything to wear under it in public that wouldn't look awkward. It kind of just has been sitting in my closet. I've tried it on a few times, with a few different bottoms, and nothing seemed to look right. The white tank-top underneath looked too contrasting and odd to wear out, but if I wore it with just a black bra underneath that would be a bit much for me. Not really sure how to feel about this, since I haven't gotten much use out of it.
