I went to Ann Taylor Loft for the first time this evening. After reading so many positive reviews about the sizing, I wanted to see if it was true for me, being curvy and all. I spent less than an hour trying on things from the sales rack and walked out with this dress, along with a blouse. Here is my review of my first Ann Taylor Loft Dress.

According to the Ann Taylor Loft size chart, I am an XSP in tops and 0P in bottoms and dresses. I was excited that this 0P was on the sale rack.
I thought it fit perfectly well when I was in the fitting room but after taking pictures for this post, I see a flaw. The intention of this dress is to "sculpt" the body with its asymmetrical design. I love the design but from the side, I look like I'm pregnant because of the extra space in the waist area that bunches up.

The length of this dress is very petite friendly, in my opinion, but I think I am still in search of clothes that fit both my waist and hips. I wonder what an 00P would feel like? Probably a little tight in the hips and snug at the waist.
Nonetheless, I really like this dress. The quality feels expensive and thick. The top is lined. The bottom portion is not but it's of thick spandex material. Regarding the fit, I can always add a thin belt at the waist to add definition to my waist. Without wearing a belt, this dress looks like a rectangle on me.

I didn't have much time to really try things on and get a feel if Loft is for me or not but for the most part, I am content and plan to be shopping there more.
Thanks for my sister for taking pictures of me, for this blog. I am pleased with how the pictures are turning out. Please let me know if you'd like more pictures with face, or no face. Thanks.
