{Fashion Review} Black Collared Bodycon Dress from SheInside!

It's finally the weekend, and I have a brand-new SheInside fashion review for you all! This time, I got a black bodycon dress with a fold-over contrast collar. Read on for the full review.

Hey lovelies! Remember my previous SheInside reviews? Well, here is my third experience with SheInside, an online fashion store. My previous reviews included a black lace bodycon cutout dress (similar to For Love & Lemon's Eternal Love dress) and a black pleated tennis skirt (a dupe of American Apparel's tennis skirts), both of which were quite impressive! You can read my first and second SheInside reviews here:

This time, I chose a black sleeveless bodycon dress with a folded white collar. The dress features a tight-fitting silhouette and minimalistic black-and-white color-blocked design. The cut is simple yet elegant, and this dress is very versatile and can be worked into many different styles.

SheInside offers this bodycon dress in 6 sizes, ranging from XS to XXL. I was worried that size XS would be too small on me, but I chose to try it anyway.

SheInside

If you aren't familiar with the site, SheInside is an online fashion retailer that sells a wide variety of bags, accessories, shoes, and clothing. They offer many interesting styles at amazing prices, with special discounts for presale items! Both of my previous experiences with SheInside have been great; their clothes are accurate to site pictures up-to-par in terms of both quality and style.

My 3rd SheInside Experience

Processing was pretty speedy this time, and I received the tracking number within four days! Shipping took seven days, which I'm fine with, considering that this is a regular-shipping item.

The Review

I was super excited to get this black sleeveless folded collar bodycon dress, and I tried it on immediately after it arrived. The fabric is very soft and stretchy, and the dress has a hidden zip closure on the back.

Although I was very worried that size XS would be too small, the material on this sleeveless bodycon dress has a great amount of stretch to it, so even though it clings tightly on me, it doesn't feel uncomfortable or restricting. 

I laid the dress flat and measured it out; all the measurements are accurate to the product description! For reference, size XS is listed to have a waist measurement of 58 cm; my waist is nearly 10 cm larger, but it still fits me fine because of the stretchiness.

While a lot of "bodycon" dresses that I've tried end up too loose in the hips for me, this black bodycon dress from SheInside fits perfectly. As a result, it does wonders for the waist and figure overall. I definitely don't have the smallest waist, but this dress is extremely figure-enhancing, and it makes me look a lot thinner than I actually am.

Quality-wise, this folded-collar bodycon dress meets my standards, even though I'll admit that it's not perfect. The top of the dress is lined, which is awesome; the bottom, however, is unlined. Black fabric is generally opaque, so for the most part it's not an issue. If I stretch out the hem too much, however, it does get a little bit transparent. 

The main downside to such a stretchy, comfortable, lightweight fabric is that it rides up really easily. As you can see in these photos, the dress bunches up quite a bit whenever I move around. Personally, I don't mind this too much, and since I've found this to be an issue with most tight-fitting cotton dresses, it was within my expectations.

And lastly, style. It goes without saying that I'm obsessed with the look of this sleeveless collared black bodycon dress from SheInside. The minimalistic solid black body, embellished with a contrasting fold-over white collar, creates a sophisticated sort of look.

I chose to emphasize the contrasting white collar by adding a white leather bracelet (review here) and spiked white high-heeled booties (review here). A simple black dress like this is always an amazing addition to anyone's closet, and black and white are colors that look great with nearly everything! For an everyday look, I'd probably add a denim jacket or tie a plaid shirt around the waist to make this dress a little more casual and fun.

For a fairly reasonable price of $24.73, SheInside sells this rocking sleeveless contrast collared black bodycon dress. The material isn't the thickest, but everything else — the look, the sizing, the stitching, the colors  is the same as it appears on the model photos, and I'm so happy that I chose it!

Overall

My third SheInside shopping experience was just as wonderful as the previous two. The black sleeveless folded collar bodycon dress that I picked turned out to be as amazing as I'd hoped, proving to me once again that SheInside offers a lot of great items at affordable prices!
