THE MANSFIELD DRESS


I have a new sneaky comfy-fancy dress from Trashy Diva. You know, sneaky and comfy-fancy as in being more comfortable than what it looks: this one is made from a quite thick semi-stretchy jersey fabric. So I got two once I was at it, same colour, different cut. I am always on the look-out for items to be able to actually wear "all the time" and these seem pretty promising so far.

Looks great! How does the fabric feel, does it scratch even just a little bit? I'd like one of those for myself but I'm suspicious about the fabric.

Elina : it's more like a slinky "college" fabric, so it's not itchy like a knit can be at all.

It says in the size chart to choose the smallest size possible; I took my regular one. Which was good; the dress is stretchy but not super stretchy; this one has a sean in the waist (from the cummerbund detailing) that will not stretch that much. so the smaller option would feel too tight I think. I also have the Jenny dress which stretches more all-over as it has no horizontal waist or bust seam, there the smaller option would have been good on me too.

Stunning dress!

That is an amazing dress!
Love that colour, and are always on the lookout for a dress/skirt/shirt in that colour! It's sort of a more sophisticated type of red, I think. And looks better with my skin tone then red-red.
You look wonderful (as always)!

Absolutely lovely! I adore the color you've chosen.

I'd like to get this dress, but I'm concerned about the fabric - is it the kind of stretchy, flexy jersey fabric that tends to show flaws (ex cellulite), or is it a "stronger" weave that camouflages flaws and holds you in?

Absolutely stunning dress! I like this deep wine color, it is warm and sweet at one time. It fits you very much!
