Wanted a feminine dress for my daughter's Sip & See
I wore this dress to my daughter's Sip & See baby shower. (For those not familiar with the southern "sip & see" tradition, it's a come and "meet the new baby" shower after they are born.) Having two boys previously and then having a surprise gender at delivery with a girl had me wanting everything to be "girly" at the shower, including my dress! It was perfectly feminine and beautiful... Compliments from everyone and it made me feel awesome for my first event after giving birth. Since it was held 7 weeks after my daughter arrived, I liked how the dress hid my mid-section a bit since I still had some baby weight to lose. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because the back of the dress at the bottom didn't lay flat. Probably needed to be pressed better when dry-cleaned, but it didn't really bother me. I'm curvy so wore the size 6 over the 4 because the dress really didn't have much stretch, and I wanted to be able to sit down!
