Ever-Pretty Dress Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

Every woman should have a little black dress hanging in her closet. Depending on the type of shoes and accessories worn with it, that little black dress can easily be either dressy or casual. I’m a fan of the little black dress, so I have several that I rotate between, depending on my mood or the event I’m attending.

My new favorite black dress is from Ever-Pretty, a website that offers the largest and most appealing styles of any retailer that I have ever seen. Anytime I find myself in need of a new special occasion dress, Ever Pretty is my first and only choice. The website is easy to navigate (you can search by style, color, occasion, and more), and the hardest decision then becomes choosing just one dress. But since the selection is so affordable and shipping is always free, no one should feel guilty about adding an extra dress to her shopping cart.

Ever-Pretty Dress

Now that summer is officially over and cold is setting in, I’m pushing my sleeveless and spaghetti-strap dresses to the back of my closet in favor of the 3/9 Sleeve Scoop-Neck Short Casual Dress ($57.99). It’s a nice compromise between a long-sleeve dress and the sleeveless or strappy dresses that I prefer. Made from polyester, it’s a lightweight dress that is easy to move about in, though it can be tricky to zip up and fasten the button without an extra set of hands. I’m finally able to get myself into and out of the dress entirely by myself, which is a huge plus!

For anyone who worries that the dress may be too tight around the middle, there is a tiny bit of stretch to it. Anytime I wear it, I always have on a waist cincher and tummy-tucking slip to give me a more slender look. However, even without my cincher and slip, I still have plenty of wiggle room to comfortably wear this dress. I found the sizing chart that Ever Pretty provided to be very accurate for this style.

The dress can be worn with or without a bra, and I recommend wearing it without because you’ll need a special type of bra so nothing is showing. There is enough padding in the front I felt perfectly at ease going without a bra.

The scoop-neck short casual dress does require a bit of extra attention to clean; because of the delicate sleeves, this dress should be hand washed only. As much as you might be tempted to use the delicates setting on your washing machine, it’s not worth the risk. The dress may also arrive to you with some wrinkles. To get them out, I suggest hanging the dress in the bathroom with you when you shower. If that doesn’t work for you, then try to iron the dress on low heat.

If you have an upcoming event and don’t know what to wear, check out all of what Ever Pretty Dresses has to offer. Their wide selection, friendly customer service, fair return policy, and reasonable prices have made me a very satisfied customer. Anytime a friend tells me they have nothing to wear, this is the first website I refer them to.
