I've been super excited for this dress ever since it hit the coming soon section, and it does not disappoint. I really love the simplicity and versatility of a cotton wiggle -- its just a perfect day dress, that will transition beautifully to night.
Adore the beautiful lemon yellow, and the cut is so streamlined and gorgeous. The seaming down the front and boning is incredibly flattering. So I took these pictures after wearing it for a full workday, where I was sitting for like 6 hours. It got a bit rumply but I thought I still looked pretty crisp, considering. The straps are adjustable so you can raise the neckline up a little, for the office.
The fabric is slightly softer than the sateen of the Heidi and Jenny. So the fabric doesn't feel as structured, but the cut of the dress gives a great silhouette -- I am super lazy and don't have the energy to suffer through spanx or a girdle on a daily basis, and I didn't feel at all self-conscious without shapewear in the Jayne.
I love that the belt is slightly wider, and I'm glad the back slit is shorter than some other wiggle dresses. It feels sophisticated and pretty.
The size chart is spot on, at least for the Medium, so match yourself up carefully. My only note would be that the yellow could be slightly more opaque so that patterned and darker underpinnings could be worn. But I guess that would affect the fabulous tone of the yellow, which is really just perfect. So I take the note back. Nude bra recommended.
The yellow looks AMAZING on you!!! Gorgeous!
I got the pink myself, and I love the fit...I'm still debating on if the color is too "bubble gum" pink for me. But oh my gosh, that yellow is beautiful with your coloring! <3
Thanks Tab! I'm really happy with this design, its just so...wearable. Pictures of you in the pink!! Pictures of you in the pink!! (that's me, chanting). I would've loved the Jayne in lavender too.
