You guys know how much I love ASOS Curve, (I think half my wardrobe may be from there now!) but I am so pissed about this dress. I waited so long for this to go on sale so I could get it for a decent price, and when it arrived I was bloody outraged!
The dress in the picture is lovely isn't it? I excitedly ordered it in my normal size 22. tried it last night. In real life? WTF?!
NOT THE SAME DRESS.... AGAIN! Lets run through the description on the site shall we?
ASOS CURVE Midi Dress in Wallpaper Print... No it isn't. It comes to above my knees, and I am considerably shorter than thier model.
Made from a soft jersey fabric- No it isn't. This is a shell like fabric with absolutely no stretch! I know Jersey can be made of many things, but it ALWAYS has stretch, so this is not jersey.
High waisted design - Not it isn't. Most waists on Asos regular dresses hit me under the boobs because I have a long body. This dress may be the first ever curve dress to hit me bang on my waist!
The neck is different to the pictures too.
See how short this 'midi' dress is?! You may remember how ANGRY I got about the geo print dress I bought (post here) when it arrived and was considerably different to the image on the website (which still hasn't been changed despite me going on and on about it & them saying the picture would be changed. ASOS IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO MISLEAD YOUR CUSTOMERS LIKE THIS. Trading standards for christs sake!
Personally this dress is now going back because I wanted what I saw on the site (a jersey midi), but if you like the shorter version then I should warn you to size up, as it's not stretchy and the bust / arms are very tight.
Okay, onto something more cheerful....
New look inspire pop art dress was a success, and I'll wear it to the private view of the Lichtenstein exhibition on Monday morning (not with white undies though obviously!). This is a size 22 - tight but as it's bodycon that's fine. This seems to have sold out now I'm afraid.
