Cute but Short-Waisted
Comments about Tahari ASL Stripe Bonded Lace Fit-and-Flare Dress:
FYI...The white stripes in this dress appear very white online. However, they are actually nude covered in off white lace. I The black stripes are a different fabric not covered in lace. didn't have a problem with that. My problem was that it was too short-waisted for me. Then with the poofy skirt and horizontal stripes, altogether it made me look 10 lbs. heavier. If the waist had been an inch longer, I could have pulled it off. I am 5'6 1/2" tall, about 142 lbs. and the dress was a size 8. A size larger would have been huge in the bust and too much fabric all over. The size 8 was already generous in the bust as is. There is a silky lining under the skirt, then a stiff poofy fabric on top of that to give the skirt the flare, then another silky layer on top of that, then the skirt. A lot of layers. This is for someone who is very thin but not too long waisted. It appeared to be nice quality though. Just not for me.
