Last week I reviewed both Cuyana's poplin shirt dress and Everlane's poplin square shirt dress. And today I'll be reviewing the poplin dress I liked the most, Everlane's cotton poplin V-neck tank dress in washed black. I ordered this in my usual Everlane size, size 2 and it fit perfectly (I'm usually a small or size 4 in dresses).
I would say this is the most fitted dress I've tried from Everlane thus far. Everlane really likes to make boxy or loose fitting dresses that mostly look good on those with nice long legs. But this tank dress was just right for my pear-shaped body. The fit is a bit looser around the middle and narrows a bit near the legs. I like the v-neck which doesn't show too much skin, and this dress also comes with pockets (side note: I love when dresses come with pockets but I don't really ever use said pockets. I guess I just like having the option).
I guess my only gripe with this dress is that at times, there's some weird bulging that does around my butt area (see pics above). But that's a lot more noticeable in the pictures than in person. In general, this is a great LBD for summer (IF you can handle the upkeep of poplin. Like reader Colleen had commented in the Cuyana review, if you're going to keep the nice crisp look of poplin better be ready to spend some dough at the dry cleaners or get friendly with your iron). Since neither of these things are an option in my current simplified-Airsteam-living, I passed on this dress and sent it back. But if you're willing to put in the effort this black poplin tank dress could be the right simple dress for all occasions!
I was able to try out this tank dress thanks to all readers who purchase through my Everlane referral link!
