Product Review: Curvissa Leaf Print Tea Dress

This review will just be my opinions on the item. If you want my review of the service please read this post.
The second item I picked from the Curvissa site was the M.I.M Leaf Print Tea Dress, priced at £59. When I spotted it on the site I fell a little in love and put it down as my first choice like a shot. When I received it I was really excited too, The fabric is lovely and thick, luxurious feeling, and the pattern is vibrant and pretty. And then I tried it on.. oh dear, where's the waist? In the photo on the website the model's waist was clearly defined and on 5'9 me the waist appears to be practically below hip level. Maybe sizing down would have fixed the problem slightly but somehow I don't think so. After belting the waist with a cheap primark belt it looks a little better, but I'm not sold to be honest. It's a shame because I was so looking forward to wearing it and it just doesn't flatter me at all, even with the shapewear I have on in these snaps. Oh, and also I've included some closeups of my new shoes because they are too pretty to pass up!

  1. How disappointing that it turned up and wasn't quite what you had in mind, but I think the belt does work to define the waist enough. Love the print, and your cute new shoes!

  2. I have those shoes in red glitter. I bought them to wear on my wedding day but couldn't because I injured my knee. So if you know anyone who wants an unworn pair of uber-sparkly size 7 Dorothy's, give me a yell!

    It's a shame the dress didn't fit well, because it's really pretty! x

    2. I wore some leopard print canvas flats for the ceremony and in the evening I changed into my DM Mary Janes as I knew they'd be comfy for dancing in. My dress was so big and poofy it kind of hid my shoes, so all was well. :) xx

  3. Do I see a new hair color?? Great!!

    The shoes are wonderful, love it. I have nearly the same, but in yellow. Their are so comfortable. The style of the dress is good and the print too. But isn´t it a bit to cold for now?

    Greetings, P
