Rated 1 out of 5 Too embarrassing to wear to work
I like the fact that this dress is machine washable and the design APPEARED to be work-friendly.
And everything looks fine when you stand in the dressing room to try in on. I'm traditionally a size 2 in BCBG and tried on and bought a size 2 at the recommendation of a sale associate.
BUT what I didn't realized until after I bought the dress and wore it to work is that the inner skirt rides up as you walk! The material of the outer part of the dress doesn't ride up (thankfully) but its soo sheer that once the inner skirt rides up, you can clearly see the outlines of you legs/ pelvis/ whatever you are wearing underneath.
It was VERY embarrassing.
The only thing that can be done now is to wear leggings under this dress and wear this dress as a tunic. But it really defeats the purpose of me buying this dress as a work dress and it doesn't solve the problem of the dress riding up.
+ 1 for the fact that this dress is machine-washable but -4 since I'm disappointed BCBG came out with a design flaw like this.
