Tummy Issues GONE
This hides your pouch fantastically! You know, the ones your friends tell you they don't see but YOU KNOW is there... The dress is comfortable and drapes in all the right places without being too tight. It's very soft so if you want something TIGHT that sucks you in, this is not the dress. You can adjust the length for a longer or shorter look and with the longer look and a blazer, you can wear this to work and look pulled together. I am 5'7 with a slimmer build and I wear a medium (8) and this fit perfectly. The neckline is also a feature that makes this dress look like it DID NOT come from American Apparel. It's flatters your neckline in a way that makes you look slimmer than normal. My only concern is that the color might fade after wash. I hope it doesn't but I'm just not sure.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Comfortable
This dress has a nice soft feel and is quite comfotable to wear on a hot day. Looks great with flats or wedges. Great transitional piece as it will likely look fantastic in the fall with tights and boots. The straps are adjustable, similar to a bra strap so that's a good feature to know about.

Tummy Issues
This dress is great if you want to wear a fitted dress but have some uncomfortable feelings about your little pouch...the one your friends tell you they can't see but YOU know it's there. The dress fits true to size (i am a meduim (8) and 5"7 with a slimmer build) it doesn't quite hold you in because the material is kind of soft but the material drapes and covers in all the right places so that you don't need it to suck you in. You can adjust the length of the dress if you want a shorter look or you can wear it to work with a blazer and a longer look. I haven't washed it yet so i don't know if the color will fade or not, that's my only concern and why I didn't give it 5 stars. Honestly, it does seem like it will fade but hopefully I will be wrong. I own other Velvet items and they haven't faded but they also are not black.
