Hi guys, it was a brief hiatus but we're back on the Everlane review train (also I've updated my Ultimate Everlane Reviews page with the latest reviews if you want to take a peek). Today we have the Luxe Drape Muscle Tank Dress. I recently reviewed Everlane's linen muscle tank and I came to the conclusion I just wasn't a muscle tank kind of gal. So for the same reasons I'm not a huge fan of this dress either. But to be honest I'm not a huge fan of this material either for a dress and here's why:
~ The Luxe material is very thin so 1) you can definitely see some VPL if you're not wearing the right underwear and 2) there is a slight sheerness (the kind where if you are standing with your legs apart you can see through the dress a bit).
~ The Luxe material also hugs all the curves (or you could call them love handles)
However, if you're less on the curvy side and have some good underwear, you might like this dress because:
~ The Luxe material is quite soft and smooth. It feels really nice to the touch. And it only requires washing on delicate (yay no hand-washing required).
~ The length of the dress is nice and would show off your toned arms (if you have 'em)
~$35 gets you a whole dress (vs. $30 for just the top). This might look really cute layered with tights, boots/booties, and a blazer or a sweater for the fall. It's a pretty good foundation piece.
Oh and I should mention I ordered this a size up from my usual (I got a medium instead of a small) because it looked like the small might be too fitted for such a thin material. And I think I got the right size, but this dress just isn't for me. Anyways if you're interested, you can purchase the top at Everlane.
