|Pleated Double Bow Sheath Dress|
My recent Forever 21 order was an total failure. Granted I expect this from time to time because Forever 21 is hit or miss but trying on the items I purchased was especially laughable today.
The dress above measures 18" across the widest part of the bust (measurements taken with the garment laid flat). This makes for a a really strange top portion of the dress that is both long and wide. I can't see this dress fitting most people without alterations (shortening and slimming) in the bodice and I certainly don't love it enough to do that.
The lace dress (stock image below) didn't fit me any better and measured 19" wide so there's plenty of material left over. See it on me here. The lace pattern is really pretty and I love the scalloped sleeves so I might keep it and get it slimmed. It's a big 'maybe' though since I've yet to tailor any of my F21 pieces. To do so would cost the same or more than the item itself.

I also ordered these polka dot tights in sz SM/MED. It's a bit loose on me so it bunches a little when I bend my knees. Note that the polka dots end about mid-thigh.
