So, I bought the Amazon Wrap Dress that everyone has been talking about lately. You know, the Instagram posts where bloggers are all wearing the same Amazon wrap dress but in different colors, asking which one is your fave color? I know you’ve seen it. Well, I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and get one for myself and see if it was really as fire as they all claimed it to be. I’m only 5ft tall, so often times, clothes just don’t work for me like they do for others…
Well, it came in the mail last Saturday and I tried it on immediately (duh). And I will say, it was not over-hyped. This dress is absolutely fabulous. It was a little long when I wore it barefoot, but with heels or wedges it would fit perfectly on me. The brand on Amazon is called Zesica. I guess like “Jessica”, but with a Z? And I ended up getting a few dresses from them.
I got the long, maxi wrap dress in the “green” color, but it turned out to be more of a teal, which is fine because the color makes me look super tan! I ordered the Small, since there was no X-small option, but it still fit perfectly. I really love this dress it is a wrap dress. Like it looks like a robe until you tie it! So you can make it as loose or as tight as you want it! I didn’t understand how the dress worked at first… There is a hold on the right side of the dress to slip the tie part through to bring it around and tie (for anyone wondering).
Zesica also has a mini-dress version of the maxi, which I also ordered. I swear all of my clothes have been coming from Amazon lately… I ordered the Zesica mini wrap dress in the color navy. It also arrived Saturday with the long dress and it is almost the exact same as the long dress, but shorter, and a different color obviously. I ended up throwing the navy mini dress into the washer and dryer (both on hot) to shrink the mini dress a little because it came down really far on my legs at an awkward length around my knees. Like a 6 year old trying on her mom’s dress… #ShortPeopleProblems
But after I washed and dried it, it shrunk a lot and was the perfect length for me! So if you don’t want yours to shrink, make sure you wash it in COLD water and let it air dry. Or if you’re short like me, you can just wash it in hot water and dry it in the dryer! 🙂
I love the material of these dresses, they’re very light and the material is almost cool to the touch, so it’s perfect for summer. And the fact that they are wrap dresses makes them perfect to wear over a swimsuit so you don’t have to do the awkward pulling a shirt/dress up and over your head and praying that a nip doesn’t slip. Or is that just me?! So I’m planning on giving these dresses a lot of wear time!
And with that said, I’m planning on buying a few more Amazon wrap dresses from this Zesica line. I want the orange mini wrap dress and the red mini wrap dress. And I know I want another long maxi wrap dress but I haven’t decided which color yet.
So really, the Amazon wrap dress that everyone has been talking about lately is definitely worth the hype and you should definitely hop on the bandwagon with me and add it (or a few) to your wardrobe for summer! Y’all know how much I am into the boho trend this summer so this dress is perfect. And since I’m planning on moving onto a sailboat in the next few years, these dresses will probably be a staple while living on the boat or traveling around whatever country/continent I am in!
P.s. How cute is my little duck friend?! He wouldn’t tell me his IG handle or else I would have tagged him in my post 😉
