Rib Knit Midi Dress Old Navy I Editor’s Review
I admit it: I’m obsessed with bodycon dresses. There’s just something about a number that hugs the curve that gives me the most confidence, and for that reason, I can never have too much of it. On the hunt for just about every style and color under the sun, I recently stumbled across the Old Navy Sleeveless Rib-Knit Fitted Midi Dress ($40) and knew I needed it in my closet, stat . Ahead, find my honest review of the perfect figure for summer.
What I like about this dress
Uh, everything? First of all, this dress is very stretchy. Instead of struggling to get it over my head, I’m able to get in and get it back up quickly and easily. And the cut? Just as I had hoped. I ordered my usual size medium and it hugs my curves without feeling like it’s being sucked into my body. It’s light and comfortable — then comfortable, in fact, that I was able to take a midday nap in it (and I can see myself doing so in the future, TBH). Lastly, it gives me a 90s vibe in the best way, and the side slit is such a fun touch.
What occasion is this dress suitable for?
This dress can easily be dressed up or down with accessories, whether it’s a trendy pair of sneakers and a denim jacket or designer jewelry and heels. This summer, I can see myself wearing it in different ways. Since it’s as comfortable as pajamas, I’ll probably wear it frequently for working from home, but I also think it’ll come in handy for date nights and happy hours with friends.
What to note about this dress
Although this dress has mostly five-star reviews, there are some lower-ranked buyers who described it as “see-through”. In my experience, the fuchsia design (called Cosmic Rouge) was not. I was able to wear a neutral colored strapless bra and matching seamless underwear underneath without being able to see them. It doesn’t hide my body’s natural bumps and bumps, but I didn’t expect that – it’s part of the BodLove collection, after all!
Second, note that there is only one side slot. I first thought there was one on each side, but after checking the product description I realized it clearly stated there was only one on the left hem.
Would I recommend this dress?
Yes! I really want to buy this dress in another color, but I’m just resisting because my collection is getting a little out of control. But I definitely have my eye on that pretty teal color nicknamed the Mediterranean Sea.
