I’ve picked up a few new Eliza J dresses over the last couple of months (lacy blush pink dress recently seen here) and this is hands down my favorite. I love it because of the stretchy knit fabric that makes it so much more comfortable than your stereotypical form-fitted special occasion dress. I enjoy dressing up but I despise being uncomfortable so this is the perfect little black dress that allows me to feel comfortable while still being fancy enough for events and special occasions.
I went up one size like I tend to do in Eliza J dresses and I ordered it in petite for sizing references. Petite sizing always seems to work better on my just under 5’2 frame – especially when it comes to dresses!
I’ve only recently realized how much body image can be impacted by clothing choices. I can only speak from my experience but I feel a million times more comfortable in my body in non-restrictive clothing, regardless of the size of my body. Can anyone else relate?
