I have a hard time finding sweater dresses that are flattering to my shape. I have a rather large rear end so it makes things like this give me a "mermaid butt." Mermaid Butt occurs when the back end of the garment (dress/skirt) curves up in the back due to your butt stealing all the fabric.
This dress was a gift for Christmas. It is a little tight, but with a few wears, I think it will be more flattering.
Do you ever hope that clothes will fit better after a few wears?
Here is a closeup of the brooch on top. I'm not crazy about the black toule, so I might remove this pearl flower feature in the near future.
