Product: SEXY RED V- NECK AND OFF THE SHOULDER EVENING DRESS
Color: Red (Other available colors include Black, White, Dark Blue, Burgundy, and Peach)
From: Amazon.com/ AlvaQ
Hello there and thank you for visiting this site as I’ll be reviewing this sexy V-neck dress that I bought few months ago. In this article, I’ll provide you with my experience with the wait ( how long to took me to receive it), the quality of the dress (fabric wise and Design wise), how to wear it and where, and how it fits me ( not in order).
HOW LONG WAS THE WAIT? (Pros)
I ordered this Red V-Neck Dress from amazon and more precisely at AlvaQ, on November 6, 2017. I bought it to wear for my family’s first family/holiday picture. Since it was the holiday season, I thought that this red dress would be just perfect. And the gown arrived on November 8, 2017 as predicted which I found pretty impressive.
HOW IT ARRIVED (Cons)
Though the dress didn’t get to me wrinkled, I was a little disappointed at the mailing presentation because It was mailed in a bag inside a big envelope. I would have preferred it if it was properly folded inside a box. To me, presentation’s key.
I guess I shouldn’t complain much about its presentation, what’s most important is that the it arrived early and wasn’t not wrinkled or dirty.
QUALITY OF THE FABRIC (Pro)
I got to say, I was amazed. I bought this dress for only $19.99 and expected the fabric to be thin and to have a terrible quality. But not at all. The dress was made with a thick spandex like material that the thickness of it was just a great way to help me hide those extra and unwanted fat.
The manufacturer says that the dress is machine washable, and can be a hand washed or dry-cleaned. Honestly, I never got to wash mine. I’ve only worn it once for only a few of hours.
Since my dress is red, if I had to wash it, I would have probably avoided machine washing it especially with other clothes. I would either hand wash or dry clean it.
Also, since I never got to wash them, I’m sure if the fabric would shrink or if its color would fade after a wash.
QUALITY OF THE DESIGN
Another thing I love about this dress is the way it was made to hug the body and to give more curve. ( I hope I made sense, if not please see picture above to see how the designer cut and sewed the dress)
HOW DID THIS FIT ME?
As you may already, I am a plus-size. I’m 5.7Ft tall and I weight between 200-230lb (Weight changed due to pregnancy). I usually wear size XL but I’m most comfortable wearing 2XL just because some parts of my body are bigger than other, like my breast.
To be honest, I was quite nervous when I saw that they only sold sizes Small to 2XL because I usually order 2 sizes above my actual size especial on amazon. Thankfully, this dress did fit me just fine. I had a little trouble closing the top of the zipper, but I believe that this was caused because I’m larger at the bust.
I loved the overall style. The off-the-shoulders style made my shoulders look smaller rather than larger, and I was able to hide the areas of my arms that I never liked showing. I also loved the mid-calve look just because it made me look a lot curvier than usual. And the thick fabric was just a great way to hide my muffin-top.
HOW CAN YOU WEAR THIS SEXY V-NECK AND OFF THE SHOULDERS DRESS?
The dress contain padded bust which allows you to not wear a bra if you don’t wish to. But as for me, I always wear a bra underneath it since I’m fully busted. And according to the customer review pictures that I have saw on amazon, I strongly recommend women who are gifted in that area to still wear a bra, precisely a deep plunged bra, just to avoid the breast to look saggy.
It’s totally ok to wear shapewear, this is completely up to you. I will only suggest that you pick something that is smooth and free of any wires such as corset. The wire lines can make an elegant and sexy dress like this one, a little too busy and unflattering.
I usually recommend a Y-shaped necklace for these types of dresses, though the choice is completely up to you. Just be sure to lightly accessorize to avoid taking the attention away from this gorgeous gown.
Heels shoes such as sandals or stilettos pumps are ideal choices.
IN WHAT OCCASIONS SHOULD YOU WEAR THIS SEXY V-NECK AND OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS?
What I love about this outfit is the fact that you can wear it at pretty much any occasions such as birthday parties, clubs, wedding, church, semi-formal romantic dinner date for anniversary or valentine’s day, baby shower, bridal shower, graduation, etc. The choice is pretty much yours.
Be aware that the place you chose to go will determine how you wear this dress. For example:
Your hair and make-up, and other accessories would be much `simpler or classier if you had to wear this dress at a wedding than at a night club. So please, watch the way you accessorize. (I hope I made sense)
I would totally recommend this dress to any ladies who wear sizes between Small and 2XL. And would also recommend anyone to buy from AlvaQ only because there are many copy-cats out there. The reasons why I’d rather not send anyone to a different store than the one I brought this dress from is because they might have remade the same design but without the same quality.
I would recommend AlvaQ since I was satisfied with their service.
Thank you so much for reading this review. I hope that I was able to provide some helpful information.
