Candy Dot Dress
Hands-Down Perfect Summer Dress
I am writing this review a month after the purchase. I have worn it for work, for dinner nights and family re-union. Every single time, I received countless compliments. But that is not even close to the biggest positives of this lovely dress.
First off, the cut is so nicely done that it makes you look 10 pounds less around the waist. The skirt part is not too full and not too slim; it's just right. Secondly, the cap sleeves make the upper arms look slimmer. They are so wonderfully done that I can move my arms around freely. Thirdly, the lovely pastel color scheme makes it utterly irresistible. It's like a cup of gelato in the summer time. Who in the world would not like a scoop! The multi-color polka dots make matching super fun and easy. Finally, it is washable. I am very paranoiac about dry-cleaning because you never know what chemicals they use. As I felt the fabric was mainly cotton, I tried using WoolLight and gentle cycle with cold water. The dress came out just as gorgeous as it was before. I barely ironed it.
If I really have to name any shortfall, I would say the belt seems a bit flimsy. It is wrapped with some satiny fabric which looks a bit cheap if you look closely. But overall, the fresh minty color compliments the dress.
Size-wise, this dress is a tad big. I am 5'4, 125 pounds, 34C. I prefer Size 6 only because Size 4 is a bit tight around the chest.

I am very petite and the 0 fit me perfectly. The quality is high and crisp. The skirt is a tad fuller than the picture, but that only adds to its charm. Great dress overall
