Extended Style Notes

ASOS Petite Fit & Flare Midi Dress - Size 6

What I loved...

  • Fit & flare silhouette- this silhouette is always my go to for dress because it has a defined waist and flared skirt. I find these two elements complement my petite pear curves well!
  • Midi length - I'm a huge fan of midi length skirts but have never tried the dress before. I was a little hesitant at first because I was worried I would drown in all the fabric. Thank goodness ASOS offered this in a petite size! To my surprise this dress actually made me look taller. I think it really depends on what heels you wear with it. I wore heels with an ankle strap but I think if wore pumps that showed off more of your leg and make you look even taller.
  • Backless - Finding backless dresses that actually fit me can be hard to come by! This one fit perfectly and added some drama!

 

What could be better…

  • Material is a little thin - See below.
  • Bra situation - This is less of what could be better and more of an FYI. Full disclosure: I did not wear a bra with this dress because I had a hard time finding one that would work. Since I have a small bust it was fine for me personally not to wear one. I think the best bra option would be an adhesive bra.
