eloquii Fixed Wrap Dress in burgundy

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

This is a great purchase on sale and prime!
The style and color are just as pictured. I’m 5’7″ and the dress comes to slightly above my knees. The sleeves are just long enough to cover my heavier upper arms, plus they have cute ruching! The chest is conservatively covered even for my large F cup girls, but it doesn’t flatten. The ruched waist is the best part: easily my favorite waist detail on any dress. It’s slimming. The front pleats fall away from the body instead of clinging. Brilliant!

Despite other reviews of this brand saying these run big, I ordered the 16 and found it to be refreshingly true to size according to their size chart. My only quibble is I wish the fabric were a bit softer, but at the sale price I can’t complain. I wouldn’t spend full price due to the fabric and also I sometimes have to tug down at the sleeves (they ride up my inner arms).

I’d love to have this dress in a maxi as well, at a similar price, with relaxed elbow-length sleeves. Every girl should have one!
