As I mentioned, I ordered the new Everlane cross back dress to try, the blue in size 6 and the green in size 8. The 8 is my size; the size 6 was really snug at the waist which made it poof out a lot at the hips. It has a zip closure on one side to make it easier to get into, but I sort of wish it didn’t – I don’t think it’s necessary. That said, it is pretty unwieldy to put on.
I like the dress, and if it was black, I might work harder to make it fit. I would have to get the straps taken up at the shoulder to pull the dress up a bit, so the waist hits at my natural waist, and I would probably hem it shorter. Then, of course, I would STILL not be able to fill it out at the bust, which is very large on me. But I could probably live with that if the dress fit me better overall.
I didn’t like the dress enough to mess with it though, so I sent both of them back to Everlane.
Oh, and the no-bra thing doesn’t bother me at all, I’d wear some nipple coverage though, like these a reader mentioned in a comment a while ago. You also could absolutely wear a bra with this if you wanted to…
Did anyone else get this dress? or any other piece of Everlane’s new cotton poplin? What did you think??
