H&M Tiered Ruffle Midi Dress - Size 4

What I loved…

  • Ideal length -  Loved the midi length of this dress because it didn’t overwhelm my short stature! Since this dress has a lot of hem detail with the ruffles, the midi length was great because it didn’t look too heavy.

  • Ruffled hem  - When I decided to try this dress on I was skeptical if I would like how it looked on me. I thought that the ruffles might be too much since I’m petite, but I was pleasantly surprised how cute it looked. So my advice: don’t shy away from this dress even if you’re short!

  • Structured bodice -  One of my favorite features of this dress is the fitted bodice because it helps define my waist and balance out the drama of the ruffled skirt. The bodice makes this dress a perfect silhouette for pear shaped ladies!

 

What could be better…

  • Little tight through bodice -  This dress was definitely snug on me in the bodice area so I would recommend going a size up if you want it to feel less fitted.
