Checking Out a Cocktail Dress Over at Mimi's

Guide Rating - rating

Cocktail dresses from Mimi's Curvy Corner are pretty exciting pieces, 
with a budget-friendly price and lovely effortless style.

          

Quality

I thought that the quality of this dress hit its affordable priceline perfectly. It's simple enough to be worn regularly (especially during the holidays) in terms of cost-per wear, but the good quality means that it can stand up to multiple washings. I do recommend handwashing due to the nature of the fabric, which is both pleated and sequined.

The Slim Factor

This dress from Mimi's Curvy Corner has instant slim appeal. While you may just see a sequined front panel that's perfect for parties, there's more! We should all embrace our curves, but there's something very exciting about putting on a dress that makes your waist look substantially smaller and your bust just a tad more perky. This black dress has "party classic" written all over it, but that's not all. The contoured sequined panel is slightly hourglass-shaped to give your bod a little extra kick.

Plus, you get the convenience of a sash. You can tie it on the side, loop it around and tie it in the back, or even tie it in the front. No matter what you chose, you're defining your waist even further-- and comfortably.

Versatility

This dress can be dressed up and down to suit lots of special occasions. You can get a clean silhouette even if you add layers: the nipped-in waist allows you to wear sweaters that hit at the waist or little shrugs that cover up your shoulders. The mid-length skirt lends itself to both high heels and flats comfortably-- you won't need to worry about a too-short party skirt or a skirt that hits knee-high boots at an awkward angle.

Sizing

I'd say that this dress run slightly small, so it's important to check out the measurements over at Mimi's Curvy Corner. This particular dress seems ever-so-slightly smaller than many dresses of the same size, but the good news is that it is available up to size 5X!
