Dressed by Dresslily


I have a hard time finding clothes that fit me well.

You see, I am not only petite (vertically challenged), but I also have, what is diplomatically called by fashion experts, an 'athletic' body shape. This essentially means I have no shape. No waist. No hips. I am shaped like a toilet paper roll. Since losing 3 bra cup sizes to breast feeding, its even worse!

So I really have to be careful what I wear or it just looks all wrong and/or is very uncomfortable. Since I am so cylindrical, things often ride up, or slide down, etc. It's maddening!

I am on a constant quest for dresses. I love dresses because they can be very comfortable, they are an all-in-one outfit, and they look professional. I don't even mind biking in them. But it is always hard for me to find one that will be flattering and suits my tastes (i.e. no bright colours or huge, loud prints). I also don't like to spend tons on clothes. Oh, and because I am always hot, I refuse to buy any long sleeved dresses. In winter, I find my offices so overheated that I am practically melting, so it doesn't matter the season, it can't have long sleeves! So seriously, its been years of unsuccessful looking.

Until I recently discovered Dresslily!

The selection is almost overwhelming! Its also easy to find what you want because you can search by colour, length, sleeve length, size, etc. They have a wide range of styles from 20-something single clubbers (not my thing!) to professional and conservative.  I was able to find several dresses in the few styles that flatter my figure (or lack there of). And...the prices are insanely good. Like so good, that even though they are in U.S. dollars, they are still a bargain.

Though it took a long time for my order to arrive, the 4 dresses I bought are lovely. The quality is good and the fit amazing. I am thrilled.
