Travel lighter, more space in your closet, two dresses for the price of one, and avoiding same-dress disaster at a party. Just a few benefits you get with the Toad & Co Mirror Reversible dress ($85)! Notice the emphasis on few. There is so much more to love about this new summer frock from Toad & Co.
What I loved
- Fit camouflages minor bodily imperfections. It is definitely a curve-clinging dress so if you’re one of those uber-athletes with not a single ounce of extra skin or fat, you’re going to look the business in this dress. For the rest of us mortals, the side ruching can slightly hide any mild belly bulges or self-perceived bodily imperfections. Hey, when I turned 46 I noticed some body parts heading south. Don’t get me wrong, they’re still heading south. But it isn’t as obvious to onlookers.
- Soft and comfortable. It doesn’t get any lovelier than the soft, silky mix of sustainable Tencel ®and spandex that has some moisture-wicking properties.
- Sizing is spot on. I wear a size four in dresses and the size small fits me pretty well. I’m 5”5 125lbs.
What could be better
- Warm on hot days. It is two layers of fabric instead of one so…yeah. I don’t recommend wearing this dress to south Florida on a hot, humid July afternoon.
- Tag shows when reversed. It’s usually the downside to reversible anything. I haven’t worked up the nerve to remove the tag so I just wear a cardigan sweater over it.
It should probably come as no surprise by now that Toad & Co is one of my favorite brands. Their clothing is designed to sustain a healthy environment with a light footprint. These days it’s more important than ever to be good to the environment. Our government in Washington sure as hell isn’t.
The Toad & Co Mirror Reversible dress is another keeper from Toad & Co. It’s two dresses, one price. Plan on receiving tons of compliments and envious glances from your friends and peers who haven’t been introduced to the wonderful world of Toad & Co.
Yep, you guessed it. The Toad & Co Mirror Reversible dress is a Gear Gals Piece of Recommended Gear.
