OOTD | Down on your knees, you don't look so tall

When I stumbled accross Dreamgirl Stepping Out Little Black Dress while browsing the dresses on EdenFantasys, I must say I was surprised by how nicely it appeared to be made for the price ($34.99), and I knew I had to give it a try because it looked like nothing I already own. Oh and, a girl always need another LBD, right?

I did not really know what to expect from this dress because, well, I have never tried anything from Dreamgirl, the sexy lingerie and costumes company, but having worked in a Halloween store, I know that their costumes are of amazing quality - with Dreamgirl, you really get what you pay for, and let me tell you, their costumes are not cheap!

I placed my order for the Stepping Out Little Black Dress in Small on July 18 (along with a bunch of other stuff that I will be sure to review as well), it was shipped the same day, and I received it on July 30 - a little more than a week, which is OK, but I was so impatient! I also had to pay $25 in customs but I guess it's worth it because my order was worth more than $100.

The dress came nicely folded and wrapped in pink wrapping paper, which surprised me a bit because I have never seen any wrapping paper in any of my previous EdenFantasys order, so maybe it's new? I do think it's a really nice touch though! Made of 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex, I was surprised at how silky the dress felt in my hands when I unwrapped it, and even more when I rushed to try it on!

The Stepping Out Little Black Dress feels so light, silky and stretchy, a bit like a bathing suit, that I almost feel as if I had nothing on, which is absolutely amazing for the hot summer months! Despite this, the dress is not sheer at all. The top is described as a boatneck sleeveless with the right side that is primarily meant to be worn draped off the shoulder but I also tried it with both sleeves up to create a cowlneck, which is equally nice. I have found that when I wear a sleeve of the shoulder, my bra is a bit exposed which is not a big problem for me when going out in the clubs but maybe not office or dinner appropriate.

I absolutely love how the chest area is loose but tighten around the waist to be really form fitting with ruching, which really shows off your curves. A negative point to this is that you will have to find no-line panties or even consider going commando because panty lines will show.  The left side of the dress showcases a lovely ruffle that runs down the waist to your thighs. The back of the dress is plain, but I wish there was ruching instead!

At 5'5'', I was surprised that the dress was not shorter - in fact, it goes to about an inch and a half above my knees, which is longer than what I would normally go for but you could always pull it up higher to create more ruching around the waist area and shorten the dress a bit.

Overall, I have absolutely no complain about this extremely well-made dress, except maybe that it's a bit sad that it is only available in black... and, as I previously mentionned, that I pretty much have no choice but to go commando. I still have to try it on with leggings or jeans for the winter months, but I'm sure it will look just as nice!

 I am sad to report that Dreamgirl Stepping Out Little Black Dress is sadly not available anymore at EdenFantasys ):
