BCBGMaxazria Strapless Tulle Party Dress

by dietingfashions on December 14, 2011

Recently Haute Look (referal, cashback) had a flash sale of BCBGMaxazria dresses. I bit the bullet and ordered 3 dresses. I have a wedding coming up in March and these dresses are what I usually liked. Generally BCBGMaxazria dresses are priced at $349, average.

I got the Strapless Tulle Party Dress in Vanilla color for $169.

When I pulled this dress out of the box, I was delighted to feel soft tulle with sequins beading. The draping around the torso created a ruche like effect that was very dreamy. However when I tried the dress on, a size 6, it was too tight around the midriff thus created bunching. The dress was lined but I felt like I was wearing a Prom Dress rather than a Party Dress.

I didn’t like this dress on me at all. It did not do anything to my figure. I returned it to HauteLook.com.

Should I have done something different? Would an accessory have helped saved this dress?

Hmm….I don’t think this dress is “you.” For some reason, the tulle gives it a youthful look, just like you said, “prom-like.” Keep looking, have you ever checked out dresses from Kay Unger or Tracy Reese? I think you’d like their designs.

Thanks for the tip. I will check out Kay Unger and Tracy Reese. Yes, I’m thinking BCBG dresses are geared more towards younger women, probably early twenties. Most of the dresses I get from BCBG this time around are not flattering. Such a shame, because I do like the design.
