outfit: everlane linen racerback dress

everlane tank gray dress

I really wanted to like this dress, but there’s something a little off about it. The material has this nice dry texture to it which I love, but it doesn’t drape well on me.  I normally wear an extra small at Everlane, so got this in small for a loose fit.

I thought the arm holes would fall much lower on my sides, like it does on the model, but for some reason they don’t.  Does this mean I have large shoulders?  I don’t understand.  And I thought the whole dress would be breezy and sway back and forth, but on me it just billows out around my belly area and kinda makes me look preggers.

The quality of the dress is fine and dandy but it just doesn’t work with my proportions.  I’ve worn it twice now and haven’t fallen in love, so up for sale it will go.  This dress would have been better in the stripe pattern but those were sold out (of course).  

I don’t own a single sleeveless dress anymore, and need at least 1 summer appropriate dress that feels effortless, and goes with everything in my wardrobe, but just can’t seem to find one.  I think I need one with a bit more structure and just an inch shorter.  The search continues…
