I just bought this dress from Ann Taylor and I have to say I was pleasantly shocked by how it looked on. Normally pleating around the waistline results in me being reduced to tears and screaming out, “how could they do this to me…WHY??!!!” I take it completely personal, like the designer and the seamstress were secretly plotting my fashion demise. “This will show her…she thinks she can squeeze that stomach into a size 8, HA HA HA HA HA…MORE PLEATING!!” In my mind it is like a scene from the Wizard of OZ, “I’ll get you my pretty”, and then the designer and seamstress ring their hands and throw in a coordinating fitted white t-shirt for some back fat action, just before the flying monkeys arrive to take me away.
This dress though does an absolutely fabulous job of hiding the post pregnancy, lower belly mommy tire. It is lined as well. I am trying my best to get away from wearing all black, but this dress
fit camouflaged unusually well and I had to buy it. I am 5′ 10″, but it would work for women of different heights. I wore it today to a wedding, but you could also wear it to a funeral, for some they are one in the same.
