Extended Style Notes

As U Wish Chambray Shift Dress - Size M

What I loved...

  • A-line - Normally I stay away form shift dresses because I find them too tight through the hips. Luckily this style has a slight A-line shape, which gives my hips enough space to breathe. 
  • Boxy silhouette - While I generally prefer styles that provide more waist definition. I loved this oversized style because it's easy to throw on and look pulled together for a weekend brunch or outing.
  • Just the right length -   This dress doesn't come in a petite size (I bought it in the juniors section actually), but the length is perfect! (Center front =29.88'') Let me give you a pro tip. Shopping in the juniors section is a good option for petite women because the length of dresses and skirts tend to be shorter since they are catering to a younger customer.
  • Embroidery - I love the embroidery details on this dress. The placement, especially on the side panels, I find has a very slimming effect. 

 

Garment measurements:

Neck drop = 1.63''
