I actually received this dress back in early February, but never got around to writing the review until now. For my second Ever-Pretty review, I picked out a more formal gown. I've previously reviewed a high-low floral dress from Ever-Pretty, which I was super satisfied with (full details here), so needless to say I was excited about the chance to try out another one of their gorgeous yet affordable dresses!

The dress was shipped by USPS, and I believe it arrived within a week! It was packaged nicely, with the unique Ever-Pretty tags.

This red cap-sleeve rhinestone-embellished gown costs just $45.99 and comes in multiple other colors as well, including black, purple, blue, and white. While all the colors are beautiful, I found the red to be especially unique.

This stunning red dress features a ruched front, sweetheart neckline, lace cap sleeves, a sheer lace cutout back, a ribboned belt design, beaded embroidery at the top, a long and symmetric skirt, and a hidden back zipper.

It looks almost exactly like the pictures, but I did notice that the model wore the dress with additional jeweled pins on the belt, whereas the actual belt is a simple, solid red ribbon. If you look at the pictures for the same dress in other colors, you can see that the jeweled pins were just added for the photos and not actually part of the dress, but nonetheless I found this to be a bit deceiving, and I certainly think Ever-Pretty should've put a note about this in the product description.

This dress comes in sizes US4 to US16 (equivalent to AU/UK sizes 6-18); I got it in US size 4, and it fits exactly as the measurements suggest. I'm around 5'2", so I was afraid the dress would be too long, but since it has a slightly asymmetric hem, with a dip in the back, it's just about the perfect length in the front when I wear heels! The flowy, multilayered dip hem also gives it a ethereal quality when you walk around, which makes it all the more amazing.

The size I picked out was a bit larger than my regular dress size, so the dress isn't super form-fitting on me, but it still fits well for the most part. As you can see, it doesn't quite lay flat on me on the back, but it fits perfectly from the front.

Inside, the dress is fully lined with a smooth, silky material. The front of the dress is also lightly padded, which saves you the trouble of figuring out what to wear underneath. The zipper works well, the chiffon fabric is lightweight, and the dress overall is a lot more comfortable than many formal or semiformal gowns.

This dress is honestly gorgeous, and, though the fit isn't perfect for me, I love the look and feel of it, and it's quite impressively made for the price! The high-waist design, sweetheart neckline, and lace paneling makes it a very flattering piece, with a slimming-yet-comfortable fit that accentuates your waist while covering any extra fat around your waist and stomach area.

The design and color of this dress make it such a beautiful piece, perfect for prom, evening parties, or other formal and semiformal occasions. Here, I paired it with a layered silver necklace from Forever 21, and you can add all sorts of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings to enhance the look, but the beaded design and delicate lace paneling makes this dress a stunner even on its own!

Overall

My second experience with dresses from Ever-Pretty again showed me that, despite their astonishingly low prices, their gowns are well-made and true to product photos! This red gown is super pretty and flattering, with quality that easily rivals that of $60-$100 dresses! My only possible suggestion for improvement is that Ever-Pretty include smaller sizes, but even though I sized up for this, it still fits well. If you're searching for inexpensive yet beautiful dresses, give Ever-Pretty a look!
