Chi Chi London Dress Review

Formal and Fancy

Today I’m sharing what is quite possibly my favorite dress yet. It’s from Chi Chi London out of the U.K. This dress comes in many other lovely colors including white and blue, navy, and cream. I think it looks very striking in every color! This Chi Chi London dress review post is not sponsored in any way, I just couldn’t contain my love for this dress. I have included shoppable links that earn a few cents per click. As I often say, it’s a paper doll-sized amount!

Story of My Dress

The story behind this dress is that I needed it last year to be onstage. This dress had the right amount of modesty and frill that I was looking for! It’s so elegant and princessy. If you have a chance to try a Chi Chi London dress, do! I think this style would be appropriate for many weddings, military balls, and other formal events depending on the dress code for the occasion.

Chi Chi London Dress Review

If you read reviews of this dress, there are only two critical things that people mention. One is that the lace at the bodice is floppy and doesn’t stick to your skin. You can see this in the picture above. I didn’t mind it to be honest. It’s just part of the dress. If you wanted to, you could use a small adhesive fashion tape to hold it into place, but then it would cover the collarbone so I don’t think it’s truly necessary. The other review I’ve seen is that the lace is a bit itchy. I could feel the lace, but again it wasn’t a deal breaker. I hate itchy fabrics, and I didn’t mind this dress.

Vintage Inspired Lace

The skirt is also very poufy! It has several layers of tulle underneath. I almost cut out a couple layers because I felt like a cupcake! But as you can tell from the photos, it’s just part of the silhouette, which has a lovely retro appeal.

Shop the Look

I’ve compiled some of my favorite similar styles below. The style in my photos above is sold at Modcloth under the name Exquisite Elegance Lace Dress, at Asos, and directly from Chi Chi London.

    Abbie, without you, the dress is just a dress. You put the beauty and grace into it and make it shine… I remember how amazing you looked onstage last year. Just a perfect look!

      Hi Diana, I’m wearing a UK 12, US 8. The dress is pretty forgiving in the hips and shoulders, so go for the waist measurement that fits the best. I hope that helps!
