Ever-pretty Review: High-Low Beaded Floral Dress

A while back, I got the chance to review a dress from Ever-pretty, an online shop that sells formal, semi-formal, and casual dresses and gowns. I picked out a floral high-low dress that's in between casual and semi-formal, with a beaded neckline, ruched bodice, and lightweight chiffon skirt. Details ahead!

A while back, I got the chance to review a dress from Ever-pretty, an online shop that sells formal, semi-formal, and casual dresses and gowns. I picked out a floral high-low dress that's in between casual and semi-formal, with a beaded neckline, ruched bodice, and lightweight chiffon skirt.


Before getting right to the review, I'd like to apologize to Ever-pretty for taking so long to write this review. I actually received the dress back in the start of November, but never had the chance to take nice pictures and write up a review until now.

Anyway, I was pretty excited when Ever-pretty contacted me and asked if I'd like to review a dress from their store. They sell all sorts of dresses and gowns, from casual dresses to formal evening gowns, and their prices are relatively low compared to many formal dress retailers.

The dress that I picked was a strapless beaded floral high-low dress. Ever-pretty originally priced this at $59.99, but it's now on sale for less than half the price, costing just $24.99. Their sizes range from US 4 (AU/UK 6) to US 16 (AU/UK 18), and each product has its own detailed size chart with bust, waist, hip, length, and sleeve length (if applicable) measurements, so you know exactly how it's supposed to fit.

The dress was nicely packaged and arrived in perfect condition. It came with Ever-pretty tags as well. Knowing that Ever-pretty's dresses are quite affordable in price, I was initially skeptical about the quality. After all, I've heard the many horror stories of people buying super cheap formal dresses from China-based companies, only to find that the quality is terrible and the dresses look nothing like the original.

To my surprise, the dress that I got from Ever-pretty looks exactly as pictured on the model! It features a sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice, allover floral print, beaded neckline, flowy high-low chiffon hem, and silky underlayer. The color is a bright turquoise, with beautiful pink and floral flowers. The front is also slightly padded, so you can wear it without a bra if you'd like.

Here, I'm wearing this high-low floral dress with a necklace from Forever 21 and beige lace heels from Shop Chiki (use code mimchikimchi for 10% off!).

This dress is quite versatile in style; the floral print and flowy high-low hem make it the perfect sundress for spring or summer, yet the beaded neckline gives it an extra flair of elegance. You can wear it with cute sandals for a casual look, or pair it with accessories and heels for a dressed-up, more formal style.

The fabric is a bit thinner than regular formal dresses that I'd find in stores around me, but it's also more breathable. The dress is well-made, with no loose threads or issues that I've noticed.

I got the dress in size US 4, and it fits exactly as described. the top is quite stretchy and form-fitting, and the dress is fully lined and comfortable to wear. Personally, I would've loved if it were a few inches shorter in the front, but either way it's absolutely stunning!

I've always been a huge fan of high-low dresses, since they give you a bit of both the flowing, elegant look of a floor-length dress and the flattering, sexy look of a shorter dress. This dress is perfect for a variety of occasions, whether it's for a vacation, a graduation party, a semi-formal dance, or simply as everyday wear.

Overall

Although I was initially skeptical of the store, Ever-pretty really impressed me with their strapless floral high-low dress, which turned out to be quite a lovely steal for $25! The dress was well-packaged and well-made, and it looks and fits exactly as I'd expected it to. I like it a lot, and I'm super happy with this experience!
