I’ve been a fan of Reformation for years but never took the plunge. Years ago I tried on a few pieces while in NYC one afternoon but hated how it all fit. Then in San Francisco a few months back I tried it again at Nordstrom. Hated it there too. I don’t know what the deal was, I loved their styles, loved how people wore them, but they just weren’t working for me. Then I decided one afternoon to place an order online at Nordstrom and try it again. Couldn’t hurt, right? Well turns out I just needed to size up and embrace the vibe. So say hello to my first ever Reformation wrap dress.
A few things I’ve noticed about trying Reformation pieces is that it runs small. I’m doing a medium here, and usually do a 6 in their other pieces. Sometimes even an 8. They also tend to be completely see through. Which I find ridiculous for the price of the dress. But for under $100, I’m letting it slide. Don’t come at me with a $300 dress that requires a slip, nipple pasties and more. That’s too much work for how much you’re paying. Insert my next tip, always buy on sale. While trying on a piece, it literally went on sale the next day. Those are my lessons learned and now I can feel a little more confident shopping this brand I’ve been admiring from afar for so long.
I also picked up this pretty dress which I’ll be honest, wish I did in a medium. Nordstrom shipped it to me with a Nordstrom Rack price tag on it for more than 60% off for what I paid. Price adjustment, and a win! So I guess I’m keeping it since I really should’ve sized up and already wore it. Either way, the moral of the story is, buy Reformation on sale whenever possible and always size up! And maybe invest in some nipple pasties and a slip on the off chance your dress is a tad see through.
