LOFT Halter Diamond Knit Dress


Featured Item

halter diamond knit dress
size xxsp
sku #: 88975948
price: $49.50

This dress looked so cute on the rack! I was initially attracted to its vibrant indigo color (it is so much prettier in person!) and the mix of patterns. Unfortunately it did not fit me well. Even though it is petite, I did not like that it hit so close to my knees...I prefer at least two inches shorter. I also thought the side view was unflattering...too much excess fabric. The bust fit ok...I would not be worried about it slipping off. Although it did not work for me, this might be a great dress for pregnant petite women who do not mind some extra length!

  2. This dress reminds me a lot of what AE carries. I'm glad there's another resource for cute, casual dresses. It's a bummer this one didn't work out, but I'm sure there will be lots of others in the future!

  4. That is so funny how it's so long yet a petite item...(gasp)!

    Cute concept but better as a cover-up rather than a dress..?

  5. I do love this print! Too bad it was too long and billowy in the torso for you! Hmmm, I may have to try this :D

  6. The front view is so cute! I think the side view reveals how big it is though...which is too bad because the design is darling! Agreed that it would've been much cuter if it were shorter!

  7. I saw this dress online and recall it being an "online exclusive." I liked the mix of prints too but I do not like strapless dresses so I did not consider trying it.

  8. Lol... I was just thinking about SewPetiteGal too :) Too bad even petite sizing is too long on you, and you're one of the taller petites!

  9. I think it looks great on you, but I totally understand what you mean about the knee-length issue because I always seem to have the same problem...but I'm 5'0, so I just expect length-issues with everything!

  10. It looks like a fun dress for summer but I agree about the length. Although the print is vibrant, I do think it is kind of overwhelmed your petite frame.

  11. The dress is really cute on you! Very fun! At first glance, I thought the dress fit perfectly on you, but I guess I can see what you mean about the length. It would look better if it were a few inches shorter.

  12. Ooooh a new offering from the Loft! Too bad about all of the extra volume in the material...it does look huge.

  13. I haven't seen this dress before, and after seeing the length on you I totally assumed it was a "regular" offering! Bummer on the fit. The patterns on here would look so nice in a different form, eh? Like a non-tube top that ends at the natrual waist versus empire, and then a shorter, possibly A-line skirt. Add chic straw hat and you're done! Too bad LOFT...

    Thanks for sharing your fitting room journeys, as usual : )

  14. @Kimchi Girl I sent you an email about the hair. :p

    @PetiteXXS I was thinking the same thing...me at 5'3" feeling this was too long! Eek!

    @PetiteAsianGirl No problem...I actually have some H&M ones coming up! Gasp!! I actually battled the crowds! Sort of. :p

  16. Well, the print is really cute at least! Too bad the fit isn't better!

  17. This dress looks great on you - but I agree that it is probably a bit too long/billowy - thank you for posting the review :)
