Disclosure: Ad. The three gowns are samples of my choice from Ever Pretty. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.


Why I Chose These Gowns

There are various situations in  midlife when we are in need for a chic, but inexpensive gown. Therefore, I chose to review gowns that fulfill aspects important for us. For instance, many of us prefer our upper arms to be covered. Therefore, I picked two dresses with sleeves. Many of us are eager to slow down fashion. After serving as a wedding guest dress, the burgundy sequin dress can be worn also to a fancy dinner at a restaurant as  a Valentine’s Day outfit or serve as a formal Christmas outfit. For me, it is perfect for Argentine Tango performances.

The red gown could serve as a guest outfit at a formal wedding and could be altered later to an everyday dress by taking off the decoration at the sleeves and shortening the hem. The green beauty is also available in plus sizes like many garments of their collection.

Check the Size Chart for Best Fit

When ordering a dress from  Ever Pretty make sure you check their size chart because each dress has its own sizing. While this recommendation sounds like a hassle, it is really worth your time. I own five very different garments from them and they fit like a glove. However, their size tags differ. In other words, when your measurements and the data in the size chart match up, the piece fits despite the “size tag” may be different from the US size you usually buy.

I like that the length works perfect on my 5 ft 4 (1.63 m) frame. I didn’t have to shorten the hem as I usually have to when buying long evening wear. In front of a mirror, I pinned the hem to be 4 inch shorter to get an idea how it would look on a 5 ft 8 (1.73 m) tall woman. The hem would gaze the feet, i.e. it wouldn’t look too short. I also like about this dress is that it is in a style what you can wear to the opera.

Price-Performance Ratio

The red elegant scoop neck pleated waist long Mother-of-the-Bride dress, green women’s stylish bodycon high-low velvet party dress and the women’s sexy high-low sequin and burgundy velvet evening dress cost $49.99, $44.99 and $44.99, respectively. Sure, unless you are a ballroom dancer or your style is glamour or eclectic, the cost-per-wear will probably not go below a dollar. Nevertheless, these dresses are great value for their low prices.

Sure, the velvet is not cotton, but that’s not what one would expect given the price tag. Not to mention that a garment like the burgundy or green dress would be too heavy in cotton. I like that the velvet looks deep, i.e. not shiny like one often sees with cheap clothes.

The green gown is also available in navy and burgundy in sizes 4 to 22.


The elegant scoop neck pleated waist long Mother-of-the-Bride dress has a sequin embellishment at the sleeves.



The sequin dress is available in sizes 4, 12, 14, 16, 22 and 24. The sequins are side-by-side, which keeps the weight of the gown down. It also avoids over-bling.




Who Would Benefit from these Gowns?

Every woman looking for an affordable well-made chic semi- and formal wear will be able to find her perfect dress no matter of age and shapes. You can even find maternity semi- and formal wear in the Ever Pretty collection.

I will definitely recommend to my dancing friends and my readers who are in need for trendy, well-made, inexpensive formal or semi-formal attire.
