Review: Venus Floral Printed Velvet Dress

I always wanted a Cheongsam style dress and when I saw this offering on the Venus website, I quickly placed an order and received the dress in the mail 10 days later, which is atypical for Venus – usually their orders take longer to arrive.

This is a bodycon dress made of stretchy, figure-hugging velvet in a seductive style designed to show off your every curve. The velvet is so soft and comfortable that although it is like wearing a second skin, it does not feel tight because it stretches as you do.

I ordered a size 16 and as you can see, the hem falls just below the knee. The sleeves are a little short (my arms are too long), but I don't believe that it detracts from the overall look of the dress  

The only qualm I had before ordering the dress was its high neck collar. I was concerned that the collar would ruin my makeup when I slipped into the dress. However, I had nothing to worry about because the collar has a zipper in back to facilitate getting the dress on and off.

I like the dress a lot and I plan to wear it to the next cocktail party I attend.

  3. OK - saw this post first thing this AM and went RIGHT to the Venus site to order it. But they are all out of anything larger than a Medium! DRAT!! Is it your experience that Venus replenishes their stock periodically? Oh well, I guess I'll just keep checking back.

    1. Like you, I missed a few Venus offerings in the past and they did not restock those items, so my guess is that they don't restock sold out items.

    Sleeves too short?
    How about a black and gold banded hinged bracelet?
    Maybe two 'skinny' bracelets? Or, as 'Miss Millions' used....

  8. You rock that dress. They should be using you as a model at Venus.

    1. i totally agree. i have thought from time to time about offering myself as a model for a cosmetics/makeover company, on the basis that they can then boast: "if we can make a GUY look this good, then think what we could do for YOU!"

  11. Since you posted this, I have had an order for it with Venus On Hold while I waited for them to get my size in. Well, after checking their website every day (yes - EVERY day since Dec 22) they finally have it in my size. I ordered it this morning (Jan 10). Now let's see how long it takes to arrive! My prayer is that I look HALF as good as YOU do in it, Sweetie!
