Nicole Drape Dress from Ideal World TV

I love the feeling that I get when I put a garment on and instantly feel confident in myself and what I’m wearing.  Thats exactly how I felt when I put on the Nicole Drape Dress.

I’ve had this dress for less than a week and already I’ve worn it twice; once dressed down with flats for the pub quiz and another for dressed up for date night which is how I styled it in these photographs.

It is clear to see that the dress has been designed with comfort, style and practicality in mind.  It has a scoop neckline and 3/4 length sleeves as well as handy pockets.  However it is the shape of the dress that attracted me to it the most.

The shape of this dress is excellent because it is so flattering and really makes the most of your figure.  It has two layers; one which hugs the body to give you a smoother looking silhouette and the outer layer which is a drape style and flows effortlessly from under the empire line at the bust.

I wouldn’t have usually looked at a dress like this because I’d have mistakenly thought that it would cling to my stomach, as my bust and legs are disproportionately smaller, however that isn’t the case at all.  I felt SO confident and comfortable in this dress on both of the occasions that I have worn it so far and I have found that it really elevated my mood when wearing it.  It was no surprise to me, therefore, to find out that this is one of the most popular dresses sold on Ideal World TV and that it frequently sells out!

If you’re looking for a dress that could quickly become a staple in your wardrobe then I think that this could be it because the design makes it suitable for a day, night and workwear.  It is quite long, roughly just above knee length and you can pull it up a little if you’d like it shorter, etc.  With that in mind, you can wear it with trousers, jeans or very comfortably with leggings as it will more than cover your bum.

It is available in a multitude of colours; I picked the navy because thats the colour that I’m really drawn to at the moment.  I paired it with my ASOS leggings, Simply Be heels and navy Chanel clutch.  Since my bag has gorgeous gold hardware on it, I added some sparkly gold accessories too.

Sizing is generous with this piece because the material is so stretchy.  I usually wear a UK 22-24 and I’m wearing an XL in this dress and it fits so comfortably.

    Looks totally comfortable and really nice too, the perfect garment. The kind of thing you can throw over leggings and know you look good 🙂 As for the Easter weekend…it's supposed to rain a lot so stuff in the house, gaming and watching a few shows inbetween eating eggs. Happy Easter!

    Laura I love this dress – bargain price too. Do you think it's a light enough material to wear in the summer/abroad? x

      Its so good isn't it!! Definitely think it would be light enough to wear in the summer and abroad, although if you were going to a hot country then I'd wear it bare legged xxx

    This dress looks very flattering on you. I am sometime a bit self conscious of my belly and I have a dress/top that has big pockets like this one and it really hides all my lumps and bumps
