I was really tempted not to write up the review of this pima racerfont maxi dress since it's just not flattering on me, and I didn't want to have to put up pictures of me modeling it. But in the end I decided I couldn't let my vanity stand in the way of doing right by you guys, which is to warn you that unless you have a really banging body do not buy this dress.
I first decided to try out this dress after seeing it on two girls on Grana's Instagram stories. It looked great on them, but it's probably because they're about 10 years younger than me (and thus are a spring chicken to my summer chicken). I mean I've been working out consistently for 3 and a half months now (and by consistently I mean swimming, elliptical or yoga 3-4 times a week) and I feel like I've lost some weight (though I don't know for sure since I've long since stopped torturing myself with the scale). And I also feel healthier so I know it's working. But now that I'm firmly in my mid-thirties there's just no amount of working out (that I'd be willing to do) that will give me my working-out-body of my twenties. And by that I mean, I now have a round mid-section that isn't going away. Please observe:
And to be honest these pictures actually look better than real life (seriously those shadows are doing me some favors). And no, I'm not pregnant, though I'm sure if I wore this dress around some might think so. Anyway the problem with this dress is that it's super tight and clingy and made with only a single layer of cotton. I think the model in the Grana pictures must be going commando because in real life you can really see every bump and outline in this dress (or they just photoshopped it out).
I even sized up to a medium for this dress knowing that it's on the clingy side. But nope it still didn't work. Anyways like I said, unless you've got nothing to hide I wouldn't buy this dress. But if you are model material, then this is the perfect dress to show-off your assets. Plus it's super soft and stretchy. There's also a side-slit to make it easy for walking. For reference I'm 5'4" here and the dress just grazed the ground. Anyways hope you guys found this review helpful and you can find all my other Grana reviews here.
