A new black dress from Damart

I was recently sent a new black dress from Damart to try.  I seem to live in jeans these days so it was so refreshing to have the opportunity to wear a dress and feel like me rather than Mum for a change!

damartDamart are an on-line shop offering Ladies wear, Menswear, Footwear and Home Goods.

I received this lovely Black, empire line maxi dress in a size 10, made of 95% viscose and 5% elastane.  The dress is approximately 127cms long so a great length for me at 168cms (5ft 6in in old money).  I love the strap detail which helps give the neckline a nice shape.

I’m barely a 34B so I’m always a bit worried about low-cut dresses making me look even more flat chested, but with the gathering around the bodice I felt more confident than normal and my bra and straps were not visible.

The band around the waist also helps with my typical pear shape to highlight my waist rather than my hips and bum!  If anything I could have done with this being a slightly tighter fit at this point.  But in general I’m really pleased with this dress, I can wear it during the day, or by changing accessories it can become more of a dinner dress.

I followed the 30 degrees washing instructions, the dress has washed well, retained its colour and shape and irons easily.

So, what do you think?
