ASOS Curve Spot Dress Review

Dress - ASOS Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins Belt - Evans Bow - New Look Rings - Various

I've had this ASOS dress for a while now, & have been meaning to show it to you & do a mini review. On the website, the dress looks a lot lighter than it really is. It's a beige, rather than the light pink/"nude" it looks like in the stock photos. The catwalk video shows it truer to life, but still lighter than it is. I was initially a bit disappointed with this, because you all know how I love light pinks/"nudes", but I still liked it enough to keep.

The design is really pretty & has a quite grown up shape to it, but the polka dots give it a more youthful feel. I've found that the pleats around the waist area sag a little weirdly, because they aren't sewn down, which is why I've tried to cover that section with a belt. It's made of a thin non stretch cotton-esque material, & isn't lined, but I don't think it really needs one, it's not see through at all & a lining might make it too warm to wear in warmer weather.

My overall opinion is that it's cute, & perfect for spring. 8/10

    and i completely agree. it's a perfect dress for spring. good transition dress from colder weather to warm, because you can layer over it or wear it plain and still look super chic :)

  6. I did my last OOTD with this dress. I really like it and the way you're wearing it. :) (I think I need more accesoires or shoes that match with it, I never had anyting in this clour...)
    I was pretty sceptical because of the waist area myself, but I found it's okay, when I'm wearing it. Though it looks nice with the belt!

  26. What size did you buy this dress in? I REALLY want it but I wear a US size 26 on bottom, and the biggest size they seem to have it in is size 22..

    1. FYI, Asos' stuff runs really large, in my opinion. I'm a 24 in dresses, sometimes a 26, almost never a 22 and ASOS US 22 is generally too large for me. My suggestion, just buy it, try it on and if it doesn't work out send it back. With free shipping and free returns, you really have nothing to lose.
