OOTD | Don’t start what you can’t finish

I can never resist a sexy mini dress, so of course, I completely melted when I saw Coquette Lycra Tube Dress while browsing EdenFantasys! I must say I hesitated quite some time before finally ordering it because it looked incredibly short and from the reviews I read about it, the quality didn't appear to be the highest, but I figured out I had nothing to lose, right?

I have tried a few lingerie items from Coquette but never a dress, so I was curious. The dress came nicely folded and wrapped in pink wrapping paper, but I must say that the moment I laid my hands on it, I knew the material was a bit cheap - made of 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex, it just felt not very stretchy, and it actually reminded me of a bathing suit. Still, I couldn't wait to try on this hot little number!

I ordered the Lycra Tube Dress in Small and it definitely feels very tight and curves hugging, but still very comfortable. When putting it on, I always have a bit of trouble with the top part because the boning and the pink ribbon trim are not stretchy at all, but I guess I should have expected that. 

The top part with the front boning does not provide bust support at all - no underwire, no padding in the cups, and flimsy plastic boning - but at least this dress comes with removable straps. The material is very thin, but thanks to the boning, it will stay in place. I'm not sure I like how it seems to flatten my already small chest, but at least I'm still able to wear a push-up bra underneath to counteract this problem. 

The pink decorative side front bow and ribbon detail is a super cute touch and I really love the contrast between the fuchsia and the black, but I was disappointed that it is only sewn at the top and that it doesn't go all around the dress, which is a bit weird... and cheap-looking. It is also important to mention that the ribbon is not stretchy at all, unlike the rest of the dress.

The section of the dress from the waist to the thighs is really soft, stretchy and comfy - almost silky! The material will cling to your curves, so if this is not something that you appreciate, maybe this dress is not for you, even if you go a size up. 

The biggest issue for me is that any underwear will show through this dress with ugly panty lines, and going commando is a bit risky considering the length of the dress - I am 5'5'' and it hits mid-thighs, not to mention that it has a tendancy to ride up. I'm sure it will make a nice top paired with leggings or jeans though!

I primarily got this dress to go clubbing but I will be sure to try it on with leggings or jeans to get the most out of it.

 Coquette Lycra Tube Dress is available at EdenFantasys for $33.99 in S, M, L and XL.
