"I got an amazing deal on this dress during the Super Bowl sale. Purple is mine, and my husband's favorite color, so I decided to wear it for Valentine's Day. We went out to a very nice restaurant and I felt so comfortable and confident in the dress! I am a figure eight body shape, which means I have a big stomach, and I usually have to wear a tummy trimmer which means I'm uncomfortable, especially when we are going to eat. I didn't have to wear one with this dress, I actually tried it on with and without, and it didn't make much difference in the look.
The strategic color blocking, the gathering of the dress, and the fact that it's fully lined make it just skim over my problem areas. I read previous reviews and ordered my size in other clothing, a 26/28, instead of my IGIGI measured size, which is a 22/24. I feel the 22/24 probably would have fit, but I would have had to wear the tummy trimmer. This would be a really nice dress for work also, as it's practical, and could work with a blazer over it, it's not revealing or low cut, or over the top sexy. I'm giving it 4 stars, simply because the dress doesn't have the same WOW factor as my first IGIGI dress, but it is a great dress. "
