When I placed my 1st order with JBR Clothing I went with a few dresses from Lucky 13. Two of them stood out as wonderful day and evening looks that I want to share with all of you.
Day Look – Introducing Hotsy Totsy! (Available in sizes S-2XL)
This little number is perfect for work or transitioning into evening for a hot date. The wide 2 inch straps allow you to wear your favorite bra and is made from stretch cotton for comfort.
According to the chart I would be a Medium but thankfully the staff at JBR provided the flat measurements because the chart is very wrong. My advice is NOT to follow the Lucky 13 size chart and contact the retailer for flat measurements. Lucky 13 runs about one size smaller than their posted size charts depending on the style. I went with a Large due to my hips and had to have the bust/shoulders taken in slightly.
This sexy little number is only $57USD at JBR Clothing. I purchased it during a 20% sale for only $45! Definitely a great wardrobe must have at a bargain price!
Evening Look – Introducing Hells Belles! (Available in sizes S-2XL & Plus 1-3)
This hot number is for the ladies that want to show their inner sex kitten with a touch of class. It is made from Stretch Twill with satin facing and 3/4 length sleeves.
I ran into the same sizing problems in this dress. The Large fit perfectly in the hips but was quite big up top and in the arms. Since I loved this dress so much, I brought it to my tailor to see if she could make it work. Honestly, she had to redo to whole top (added darts in the bust, removed the sleeves to take in several inches & take up the shoulders) which only cost $22 amazingly. Note that I am pretty narrow in the shoulders and have average size arms so these alterations will not be required for everyone.
Note: Hells Belles sits just on the tip of your shoulders so you may want to sew in some bra loops to prevent your straps from showing.
It now fits like a glove and worth every penny invested! Only $69USD at JBR Clothing and of course purchased mine on sale for $55!
Both numbers are great day and evening looks at an affordable price for all of us on a budget! I would definitely buy more Lucky 13 designs in the future!
