While I am usually a swing dress girl, sometimes an occasion calls for a little more wiggle, a touch of sass and a whole lot of curves – which a The Tilly Pencil Dress certainly provides. The off-shoulder neckline with a figure hugging shape through the hips creates a beautiful silhouette, topped off with the eye catching bows on the shoulder.
I’ve never been one that has felt a desperate need to have a ‘LITTLE BLACK DRESS’ but I can certainly see the benefits after sashaying around in this one. The ease in which one could throw this on before a night out and glam it up with some accessories makes it very appealing. I also found it extremely comfortable which is always makes a dress much more likely to be reached for in moments of panic when nothing else seems to work!
I’m wearing a size 8 which is the same size that I also wore in the Tilly Prom Dress. I find the fit really good, despite my hips being technically a bit big for the size 8! But thankfully, there’s a lot of stretch in this fabric and because The Pretty Dress Company use amazing quality fabrics, it doesn’t look overstretched or loose it’s shape.
The Tilly is made from a viscose/nylon/elastane blend and what I love most about this dress is that I don’t get the dreaded ‘ride-up’ when I walk. One of my pet hates of wearing a tight dress, is when the fabric moves up as soon as you take a step and then dress ends up halfway up your thighs if you don’t do the awkward tug-down. Honestly, this is one of the biggest reasons I don’t wear them more often, but the Tilly does not have this problem – hallelujah!
The Tilly Pencil Dress in Black by The Pretty Dress Company comes in sizes 8-18, is £125 and also comes in a whole rainbow of other colours if black isn’t your thing!
