|XXSP, XSP, and XS. For some reason, only the XS came with a hanger.|
Sadly, I do not have a good eye for fit/proportion, because I can't decide which one to keep.In fact, I can barely tell the differences between the three.
- I think the hips and bust are much too tight for a dress that wants to be slouchy/casually fitting. (Especially glaring is the side view, which skews very much S-shaped.) On the other hand, the waist fits the best out of the three. This waist vs. hip conundrum is something I've come to expect in most dresses. With some dresses, I size up to accommodate my--ahem, generous hips--and get the waist taken in, but a casual dress like this isn't really worth altering.
- Since the XXSP is too tight in some areas and the XS is too loose, this should logically be the one I like the best. And yet, I don't know. In person, it just doesn't seem to do anything for me.
- For some reason, in pictures, I like this one the best...but in real life, I like it the least, mostly because the waist bags a lot when I walk. Also, from the side, it looks like I'm wearing a nightgown because it's so shapeless. (Note: the picture makes it look a little shorter than it really is because it pulled up at the waist.)
Incidentally, why is this adorable pique dress $110 online? I could have sworn that the full-price tag read ~$70 when I crooned lovingly over it in stores and the only reason it didn't come home with me was because they didn't have my size. BR is technically running another 25%-off sale, so the price difference wouldn't be that big, and most petite sizes are stocked, but it's the PRINCIPLE OF THE THING.
