When I first saw the Shakuhachi bandage off the shoulder dress in blush and black in the photos on the model I loved it straight away. I pre-ordered it immediately.
After weeks of waiting it finally arrived. The first thing I noticed was that the colour of the dress was not blush/pink as portrayed in the photo on the model. I was disappointed that it was more like a nude colour; similar to skin colour.
Also to my surprise, the whole dress is mesh material. However, from the photo on the model the ‘blush’ part of the dress looked like it was made from a different material to the black part of the dress from my perspective.
It also did not fit as well around the hips area because parts of the bandage were loose so it looked a bit scrunched. I think I need wider hips to stretch it out more. Also I found the off the shoulder part did not stay very well and I couldn’t move the arms as freely.
If I was going to pay $320 for a dress I want to feel comfortable in it. And because I wasn’t and picking faults at it I knew I wouldn’t wear it more than once. Or even never. So I decided to return it.
Do you think I made the right choice?
