I'm going to write some info that I would have found useful when deciding whether to buy this dress.
So the dress is a really smooth, very stretchy material. I am 5' 8" or possibly just above, and it sits just blow my knee. So for someone a lot shorter it would be put several inches below the knee. The waist section is quite malleable, so you can almost reshape the dress in a way, depending on your shape.
I am very curvaceous, so I am quite busty and very hippy, but with a relatively slight waist. The dress slims me down in a lot of areas, and certainly hides any hint of a stomach or anything similar. It also hides any potential backfat overhang (haha horrific I know, but we all know what it is like trying to get a formal dress and if its too rigid it can be hell!
It's a really comfortable dress.. and the colour of red is exactly the same as in the photograph, so it is quite rich, and not too light, which I was worried would drain my colour. I have mid/dark blonde long hair and it goes well with my colourings.
Id be tempted to buy this dress in the cobalt blue too, but will restrict my spending for now!!!
I would v. much recommend this one!!
At first I chose the wrong size but I sent it back and got the right one in no time! The customers service was absolutely brilliant. The dress was beautifully wraped and the fabric had the good quality I expected. The dress is really impressing and I'm thinking of bying it also in another colour.
I definitely recommend it!!
1. I bought the dress primarily because of the color which on the website looked like a very rich bright red. When I received it, I realized that the red wasn't as bright and fresh as it looked on the screen, but more like dark red wine. It wasn't bad, it was just different from what I wanted.
2. The other reason is that the material sticks to your body a lot and I wasn't comfortable with the way that looked on me.
Overall, the model of the dress is fabulous and it really does cover certain problem areas. The top part looked amazing after I put it on, however the material "stuck" to my lower body in a very unflattering way. This may be avoided with an underdskirt, but I didn't want to go to all the trouble.
As for the seller, I have to say I was very impressed both with the great packaging and the super fast shipping (and refund of my money). I would definitely buy from this seller again as it is rare to receive such fast and customer friendly service.
material was good, colour was good just the length was wrong for me.
I was worried about this dress as I have very large boobs (36HH)and a bigger stomach than I would like. However, this dress was very flattering and fits perfectly & as a previous reviewer said it hides most of the bulges you want hidden.
It is a stretchy material so on first inspection I thought it would cling to my bulges but it did the opposite. Due to my boobs, the underarm of the dress is quite low so I would advise buying a bra the same colour to hide this section or use a shrug. Those with less up front will probably not have this problem.
Overall I am very impressed with this purchase and will buy from Blue Banana again.
