Do you remember the first time you watched the Sisterhood Of Traveling pants? Tbh, I don’t think any of us truly believed that such a magical moment was possible. We’ve all been jean shopping and found it horrendous. But when I tell you I found the magical slip dress version today – well you’re just going to have to experience this midi slip dress for yourself.
The Perfect Midi Slip Dress
It Slides On Seamlessly
I was SHOCKED when I tried this dress on. If you missed the vlog where it happened, you can catch it here. But my initial hesitation was that the straps would be too wide on my back. Y’all know I love a closer collar fit to draw the eye in and so I don’t act like a toddler in an Easter dress adjusting things every 4 seconds.
It’s the Perfect fit
As the designated curvy fashion friend for our little community, I’ve lost count of the dresses I’ve tried over the years where I couldn’t get past needing to size larger for my hips to fit only to have the top be underwhelming And to be fair, I’m slowly getting into tailoring my clothes so I’ll be a better resource on what we can fix at home for you all soon.
Nevertheless, the dress glided over my curves. No pulling. No tugging. Just a smooth slide over my spanx because we cheeky snatch. And it still fit perfectly up top.
THERE’S SOME FLEXIBILITY TO IT
Because there is a bit of give with the top, you can pull the straps in which creates a deep V for the front of the midi slip dress. So rather than have a more square fit, there’s that subtle illusion which is great for a delicate long necklace to enhance the neck.
IT’S NOT TOO HEAVY
If you’ve ever worn a traditional slip, you’ll know they are quite thin. Really, they are there to make the outfit work by adding more coverage or showcasing the detail on something sheer. My newest obsession has enough weight to hold the dress in place but not something that you’re going to find too heavy for parties, nights out, or anywhere else you want a satin moment.
IT COMES IN ALL THE COLORS
I went for a champagne color – specifically to shoot with some of my favorite summer heels. But it also comes in green, burgundy, black, blush, and several more. I will absolutely be doing a styling video on this dress (maybe in more than one color so let me know in the comments below if you’d like that). The black and blue are in my future!
IT’S THE PERFECT WEAR IT TO EVERYTHING DRESS
A midi slip dress is that perfect closest staple that works for all occasions. Plus, it’s got enough give in it to really play up your curves and hide anything you might be feeling less than enthusiastic about showing. We all have our moments. Paired with the right heel you can wear it as a wedding guest or with a blazer for a powerful look. The options are endless with this one.
