I love finding the coolest gadgets and helpers on Amazon , and my endless scrolling on TikTok doesn't help my habit. However, I could never get myself to buy clothes from the megaretailer. I've always been skeptical about the quality and the sizing, especially when it comes to dresses. I'm 5'1" with a bigger chest area. Unfortunately, finding a perfectly fitting and flattering dress is a difficult feat. There's a good reason the "what I ordered online vs. what I got" meme exists. I did not want to get duped and deal with the return process. It wasn't until my best friend, who's always on the hunt for high-quality pieces at a low price point, vouched for it. In fact, she found five flattering dresses from Amazon just this past summer. If TikTok hauls didn't convince me, she did.
With the festive season in full swing, I was on the hunt for that quintessential, dependable holiday dress that I can look cute and feel comfortable in no matter how much yummy food I devour. I scrolled through the dresses section for around five minutes and was immediately drawn to the Guberry Wrap V-Neck Long Sleeve Velvet Bodycon Ruched Cocktail Party Dress ($33). It's a timeless and flattering velvet dress with a V neckline and wrapped ruching on the side. Plus, it comes in a variety of wonderfully festive colors. It's exactly what I envisioned for the holidays, so I took the risk and ordered a size small in black to try out.
