I rarely seek out Maxi dresses, but when I saw this being presented by Isaac Mizrahi on QVC, I was really impressed with the cut and style. I originally thought that I needed the petite size because I am only 5 foot 4, but the petites sold out in my size.
I went ahead and bought the regular size and even though my husband and daughter thought the fit was fine, I was still questioning the sizing. Because I didn't want to miss out on this dress, I decided to try shrinking it myself.
I have started washing my special clothes inside out with Woolite in cold water. I then hang most of the items up to dry, but with this dress, I went ahead and put it in the dryer on lower heat and it shrunk just enough to make me more satisfied with the fit.
The fun part about this dress is that so many different necklace styles can be worn with it. I bought this Nolan Miller necklace from QVC for my birthday back in 2011 and was surprised to see that it is still available.
