Fit Review Friday! Cinch It Dress Black Cherry & Black

April 19, 2018





Happy Friday everybody! This week went by so fast. I can't believe it's almost May. Which hopefully means that warmer weather should be coming? I swear this is the never ending winter. I am so over it! I've been looking for a summer dress and decided to try the Cinch It Dress.

Typically I wear a size 4 in Lululemon, sometimes a size 2. I'm 4 feet 11. 

Cinch It Dress Size 2 Black Cherry

I ordered a size 2 and a size 4 to try in this dress because I wasn't sure how it would fit. The size 2 definitely fits like a glove. There isn't any room to spare. If anything I feel the size 2 is a little too tight for my tastes, especially since I'm 37 years old. On the plus side, the length actually looks right on my petite frame. Part of it is because of the adjustable side cinch feature. It also helps that my butt fills out the lower part of the dress.



The arm hole is not too low in the size 2. It's just about perfect. In the size 4 you can see it's slightly lower and part of my bra shows. The dress is made of pima cotton and it's very soft and comfortable. The color is a dark purple with red undertones and goes well with my skin color. 


Overall, it is super flattering even on my petite frame. I am unsure if it will shrink in the wash at all since it is pima cotton and if it shrinks it definitely won't fit me anymore, which is why I also purchased a size 4 to try on.

Cinch It Dress Size 4 Black


The size 4 is looser all around and definitely more comfortable to wear. The area between the back of my shoulder blades is very loose and you can see there's quite a bit of extra fabric. The length of the dress is also a few inches longer with the cinch tie not as fitted on me. Will it shrink in the wash? I don't know if I want to take the risk and find out. The size 4 doesn't look awful, but I'm not 100% convinced I should keep it. I wish there was a size in between the 2 and the 4. 



Verdict? I'm sending both dresses back. Let me know what you think of this dress! This weekend I have zero plans except for spending time with the kittens and lots of cleaning! What are you up to this weekend?

  1. The BC in size 2 looks great! A definite keeper. I'm about the same size as you, but it did NOT look that good on me so I returned (despite my love for BC).

    1. Black cherry is very hard to pass up, but I think it's the right choice in this case!

  4. You're so right about needing a 3! The 4 looks too big and the 2 looks great but I'm with you on the length... too short. Have a great weekend!

    1. The length on the 2 wasn't bad... but just overall a tad too tight.

  5. I think you made the right call if the 2 fest too short and I had the same issue. Size 2 was wearable but a bit on the overexposed side for my taste and the 4 was too big. Super frustrating because I love Lulu dresses!
