I’m not loving the J.Crew Memo dress on me. I really wanted to, but it just didn’t seem to work. The problem is definitely the pleating around the hips. The pleating starts at my waist and ends at the largest part of my hips. When I walk, the dress starts to bunch and creates a bulge of fabric around the pleating. Unfortunately, not flattering. I will be returning this dress.
A good sheath dress will show off curves, without being overly tight or uncomfortable to wear. This dress was the right length (just above the knees), the right size (4T) and the right color, but exaggerated my curves and was uncomfortable to wear. I think that this dress would be lovely on other tall ladies, but if you have larger hips like me, I would stay away from this dress!
The good news is that the other tall J.Crew dress I purchased looks a lot better on me and you can expect an outfit post next week.
Readers: Have you had any luck with this dress?
