Hi everyone! I went to Bebe's today and tried on this SUPER hot dress. My body type is thin up top, small bust, and curvy in the hip/butt/thigh area so it's sometimes hard for me to find a sexy yet classy dress. I actually just had to return a fitting dress-shirt type dress in stretchy fabric to Express because it would ride up as I walked and end up bunching by the abdomen. Those hugging knit/sweater dresses look terrible on me because it makes my butt and thighs look big and thick in a bad way. Not a pretty sight! ush: But the dress I tried on today was of a thicker fabric and long so it made me look thin and not overly curvy on the lower half. The material is Acetate/polyamide/spandex blend ---so it has a bit of stretch. The color and style of the dress was very flattering BUT it bunched/wrinkled a lot in the torso area. The dress wasn't tight on me, in that I could go a size smaller. See how it bunches on left side model below but the other side is smooth? When I put the dress on and pulled the hem down, it looked great! BUT, when moved a bit and pretended to walk in the fitting room, it bunched on both sides!! I was shopping alone so its hard to see if I'm being picky or it really doesnt look as nice as it should due to the bunching and so I asked a youthful trendy (in a good way) girl who was trying on clothes. She said the dress was nice but for a dress of this type it shouldn't be bunching, she wasn't impressed with the bunching at all. I asked the SA when I got out and she said it was perfectly normal and fine for a dress of this material; I wasn't sure if she really meant it or she was just tring to make a sale but I wasn't convinced. So here are my questions: 1) Why does it bunch on me? It wasn't too tight. Is it the material itself? Or is it my figure?... I'm just guessing but maybe because my hip and rear are larger it pushes the excess material up? Would it still happen on someone narrow hipped? 2) Since it bunches a lot does that mean I shouldn't buy it? Do you think it really would stop bunching and stretch as the SA suggested? 3) When could I wear this? How often would I get use out of it. (I'm in my 20s) I don't go to black tie events or fancy parties. It has a sheen to it so would it be much for a dinner? 4) I've never shopped at Bebe's before, do they ever have X% off coupons like at express? Is it the type of store where a good amount of their stuff eventually goes on sale or the type of store where their clothes rarely goes on sale?
