What the Dark Galaxy Glow-In-The-Dark-Dress Looks Like

I wanted to take this moment to review a dress I recently bought at Hot Topic. The dress is the Dark Galaxy Glow-In-The-Dark Dress, the Plus Size edition. The dress is thirty-eight inches long, and 95% polyester and 5% spandex. The beautiful, lightweight fabric, extra arm room, fitted waist, the delicate way that it hangs, and extraterrestrial purple color sold this dress for me. This dress retailed at close to forty-five dollars, not including any discounts, which do become available from time to time at Hot Topic. I love this dress, and it's become one of my favorites.

Sizing for Hot Topic Glow-In-The-Dark Dress

The plus sizes range from zero to five, and according to the size/fit guide at Hot Topic, a zero is a size 12. A One is a size 14/16; a size two is size 18/20. Size three is 22/24, size four is 24/26, size five is 26/28, and size six is an equivalent size 30. As for me, I fall within the size two range or size 20 scope at Hot Topic. I am about 288 pounds at 5'5, and my measurements are 47 chest size, 47 waist size, 54 inch hip circumference, with a 40B size brassiere measurement. These figures are quite crucial because purchasing dresses online can be tricky. Usually, the models represented do not adequately replicate a real-life figure. Real life figures range in size, shape, length, width. In my case, I am more pear shaped, carrying most of my weight near my hips and rear end while being mostly flat-chested for a plus-sized woman. My most significant problem areas with dresses are usually the sleeves. My arms are rather large and typically plus-sized dresses with any sleeve constrict or get 'stuck' at my upper arm area, and therefore, are deemed unwearable.

Details Regarding Glow-In-The-Dark Dress

I did purchase the dark galaxy glow-in-the-dark dress, plus size edition, online. I was worried about it initially due to the sleeve on it. Upon feeling the fabric, the fabric is bouncy, smooth, fresh, and stretchy. It's wonderful! It's genuinely flowy and casual. At 5'4, the length hit at my knees, and even though the front panel seems more for more prominent busted women, it has a lovely ruching pattern that is very forgiving in the chest and stomach area. It fits perfectly at the waist and feels so gossamer-like. The colors of the fabric are completely beautiful, and the star patterns seem to shine. The Glow-in-the-dark effect is impressive, as the more exposed to light the dress is, the more the vibrancy of the glow is at night. This looks awesome under a blue-light as well. I was pleased to discover that the sleeves were flared and accommodate larger arm sizes. The neckline is modest and comes to a soft v point in the middle, introducing the ruched bust. The best part? This dress has pockets!

How to Wear this Dress

There's no tulle or gauze underneath, so the dress is excellent for those with slight sensory issues. It's also great for those who prefer a lighter, breezier, galaxy kind of dress that can be dressed up with a great pair of shoes or dressed down with a boat style shoe, or even gothed up with sexy lace-up boots. I wear this dress with my Sperry shoe's. I wear it when we go shopping at the craft store, or when we go visit my parents or father in law. On a breezy day, it's best to wear some kind of shorts underneath, as the wind can pick up this dress pretty quickly due to it's lightweight fabric!
