Palais One Shoulder Dress
Flattering (Ink, Size 12)
I really love the colour of this dress and the drape of the fabric. It's really flattering, especially around my stomach area. The additional boning around the chest area isn't visible and doesn't dig in. There is also a type of grippy stuff around the neckline/back, similar to what you find on strapless bras, which help the dress stay up. The bustline has some light padding too which helps with shape. I found this to be true to my size - I purchased a 12 and it fits perfectly around the waist and hips. It's a little loose around the bust but nothing that a good bra or some inserts won't fix. The only negative for me was the shoulder strap - it's a little loose and gapes at the back (I'm 5ft 6in). It says it's adjustable but what they have done it put a thin, adjustable bra-like strap under the big one, which doesn't really make a lot of difference. I think I can handsew a tuck into the big strap at the back but the design limits your options in terms of fixing this.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
