This is my first Eva Lady garment; judging by the quality materials (in this case, firm velvet that's blackest black) and attention to design innovation, this company can give Punk Rave a run for its money. On me it is a true midi-length and in terms of sizing, the dress is tight for a small! Tight to put on, but once on, it fits like a glove. For reference and as I last recall, my measurements are 31-26-35.5 inches. I wouldn't have minded sizing up on account of my hip area, had I known the fit of this dress. In terms of design, the cut combines modern slim-fit with a hint of medieval in the sleeve style. I probably would prefer wearing this with black pantyhose (revealing with just the mesh, save that for a boudoir photoshoot unless you're daring!) and strappy pumps as seen in the pics.
