Fashion Review: Shiny Red Freakum Dress
From the moment that I laid eyes on this Red foil slinky mini dress from Leg Avenue I fell hard. I rarely wear red but this looked so fun. My birthday was coming up. I was weighing options on what to wear at the time. I was unsure of where I could even wear such an eyecatching dress but I figured even if I ended up staying in my small town that I’d hit up the local gay bar because you can never upstage a drag queen.
Instead I wore it in Atlantic City!
But back to the dress. It arrived in a plain box. That’s something that I love about EdenFantasys. They don’t scream SEX STORE at you. This is cool if you don’t live alone, such as I. The dress was packaged simply, in what reminded me of an old school panythose package. A piece of cardboard covered in plastic, with the descriptive tag attached, of course.
This dress comes in either red or black. While the black is cute it just didn’t strike me as fabulous in the same way that the red did. The beaded strap, batwing sleeve and ruching on the sides also really did it for me. I have a booty and I like to show it.
After I requested the assignment I realized something. The red only comes in a size small. I had a momentary freak out. I am not a size small. Without going into my exact measurements (which I would gladly do if I weren’t battling my disordered eating again) I’m about a size 10-12. Then I remembered that a tall reviewer had mentioned wearing something too short for her as a top instead of a dress. So I decided to stick with the red and do that if I had to. FYI-The black comes in either small or a medium/large so don’t worry if you prefer that color.
According to the Leg Avenue sizing chart this dress would measure as follows, Small-size 5-7, A-B cup, 32-34″ bust, 23-25″ waist and 34-36″ hips. I measured the dress prior to trying it on so I could be as accurate as possible. Completely unstretched the measurements were 26″ bust, 24″ waist, 26″ hip and 23″ length.
The crazy thing? It fit! It’s super stretchy and because of the shine not completely see through. I love it! It’s fun and sparkly and perfect.
You may notice in these photos that I’m not wearing the correct undergarments since I wanted to get some initial photos out of the way prior to my trip. However in AC I paired it with breast petals and a pair of satiny red boyshorts. There is also a tag on one side of the inner lining that I cut out so it wouldn’t irritate me or show.
This dress is made of polyester and spandex. It seems to have been made to be hand washed in cool water and left to air dry.
Yes, I did get some “Is she a hooker looks?” on my way through our casino to the club but at the club it was perfect.
I highly recommend this dress!
