The fit is the first thing that really sold me on this dress. The moment I put it on, I felt transformed—I looked like someone who might actually, possibly, be into tennis. The fabric and the bodycon fit also looked slightly elevated—so much so that I could easily picture a royal, like Kate Middleton, or even Princess Diana, wearing it.
Beyond that, it hugged my curves without making me feel restricted in the slightest (more on that later). It looked made for my body in almost every area except the arm holes, which were a tad too big (but as I later discovered, was nothing that couldn’t be solved with a quick wash and dry).
The length was also miraculously just right. As someone with a much wider hip-than-waist ratio, miniskirts are typically my nemesis—they tend to want to ride up to the smaller part of my body, so even if they fit at first glance, they start creeping up the second that I walk, rendering them almost unwearable. Because this one flares out a bit at the hip and is fitted (but not tight!) at the waist, it stays exactly where it’s meant to, hitting the middle of my thigh.
