 Coral & Sand Tube Dress
Coral & Sand Tube Dress
A pane of coral lace protects the underlayer of this simple-at-first McGinn strapless. Upon second or third glance, however, the organza cut-out and kick pleat at its back, grosgrain detailing along the waist, and scalloped edging (top and bottom) come to life. Back zip. Cotton, silk; cotton/nylon/spandex blend lining. Dry clean. Imported. • A McGinn orginal, designed exclusively for BHLDN • Falls 24” from center back

Lovely dress. Unfortunate sizing
This dress would've been perfect aesthetically for my wedding, but the sizing made it difficult. It only runs up to a size 10, and the 10 was on the smaller side of 10, so it simply wouldn't fit several of my bridesmaids. I had thought the fact that it didn't come in a 0 would be a problem too, but the 2 was a lot like a 0. The fit is loose through the hips, belly and butt on most girls, but pear-shaped girls might find that the bottom hugs their legs a little too tightly, which can cause the already short skirt to ride (not the most flattering look). If it had just gone one size up or had an inch more fabric, it would've worked. I would also consider that the solid panel on the back is a little sheer, so a regular strapless bra might show, and girls may need to wear something that dips down lower.
