This is my shaping dress review: NY Collection B-Slim Dress. I love items with shapewear built right in. Think about it, less things to put on your body, less items to snap or hook and the easier it is to get ready in the morning.
You’ll notice the color is a bit more drab than it is on the model. That’s not just my horrible photography skills. The color of the dress isn’t as rich in person. I think I would prefer it in black, but they didn’t have it in my size on the rack at Macy’s. As a person with a smaller waist, but a bigger bust, I tried it on before taking it home with me. I decided to go with the small. I honestly think if they had an extra small, it may have been a better fit. I am pretty sure that to get it to fit the model they made some alterations. She is also much taller than I, so while you can see her knee-caps, you can’t see mine. I’m 5’4″ so use that as a measuring guide when you’re deciding whether you want an above or below-the-knee dress.
I loved that the shapewear had a bit of silicone on the hem that caused it to stay put. Not pulling on your dress all day should be a given, but sadly, sometimes it is not! Here’s the dress and some more slimming styles from the B-Slim Brand (affiliate links).
I think this dress is perfect for work with a cardigan or a blazer, or can go right to date night with a great pair of heels and some accessories. I included a photo of me from the back. Here’s I’m wearing full coverage panties and a regular bra with a thin strap, and you can see absolutely no lumps or bumps. I love that about this dress! And I think it’s a huge bonus.
So, while I think this dress is a great idea, I don’t love it enough to keep it. My breasts seem too big for it, or something, compared to how it looks on the model. I almost think this makes me look bigger instead of slimmer. Also, if you’re short, you’ll have to be prepared to have it hemmed.
This is just a funny collage of me trying to pose in this dress like the model. I’m clearly not a model. 🙂
Do you have this dress? Do you like the idea of having a dress with all the shapewear built right-in? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
