1. BCBG Alice Lace Sheath Dress - $248 - smallest size 0
This was the best fitting of all the dresses I tried on. After finding this dress I decidedly prefer an all-lace sheath dress, but finding one that fits perfectly will definitely present a problem. This dress in size 0 just grazed all my curves and hit me in the middle of my knee-cap. With high heels this would look elegant, and I could see myself wearing it as a skirt to work in the future. The deciding factor was the price tag - at $248 with no promo-code or sale in sight, I had to let it go.
2. Calvin Klein Belt Ikat Dress - Sale $79 - smallest size 2P
I found this in a 2P on a random rack at Macy's and was hoping and praying this fit me because I loved the colors AND it was on sale! Note: the colors in the photo are not accurate, in real life the blue is a dark turquoise and the white is really a grey. The problem with this dress was with fit - it was much too large everywhere. Why do all these brands only come in size 2??? It's discriminatory, I tell ya!
3. AGB Floral Print Belted Sheath - Sale $44 - smallest size 2
I couldn't find this in petite, and the size 2 regular was absurdly large. I didn't even try it on, but I loved this print and the color combo of purple and yellow is so pretty. If I could find something similar to this dress in a size that fit me, I'd be all over that!
4. T Tahari Corrina Sheath Dress - $148 - smallest size 0P
I did not see this one in store, but I looked hard for it. I just found it online at Nordstrom in a 0P so I ordered it to see how it fits. If its amazing I'll keep it, if it's even a little "bleh" I'll return it, because I'm trying not to waste money on special occasion dresses anymore. I think $148 + tax for a graduation dress is still pretty steep.
My search continues. Let me know if you know of any really pretty lace, floral, or bright spring sheath dresses preferably with a defined waist that come in small sizes! I'd love to hear any input.
