Unif Dream Jumper Dress from Nasty Gal: Review and Alterations

I posted here about this gorgeous Unif Dream Jumper Dress when I purchased it from Nasty Gal online. The rainbow of shifting colors were beautiful and I loved the sheerness of the skirt as well as the length. The one qualm I had about it however, was the miniscule shorts underneath. I tried to think of a way to add a little more modesty to the dress.

First, here is the dress on me:

As you can see in the previous and next photos, the attached shorts underneath are REALLY tiny. They also bunch up in the crotch area, making me feel like I am wearing a diaper. Not flattering at all. 

So I decided to remove the shorts altogether. I was hoping to find a high waisted jersey skirt in a similar color, but to no avail. 

Instead I used a shaper skirt slip in a nude color underneath. I liked the formfitting style of the skirt as a contrast to the billowy maxiskirt layer.

Now I can confidently wear this dress out! I looks even more lovely in the sun as the material is slightly glimmery as well. I am wearing a size XS. The dress is still available at Nasty Gal in sizes XS, S and L. It is marked down from $148 to $74!

I paired this dress with gold flat ankle strap sandals and a gold crossbody bag. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this post!

Best,

Kim

This is so great! I'm planning to buy the dress but i'm not too keen on the shorts underneath either as i think it loses the elegance the this gorgeous dress is surpose to have.
Can you please tell me what brand or where you bought the skirt from?
thanks so much!

Hi!

The skirt is actually a piece of half slip shapewear that I purchased from Herrooom.com for around 12 USD!

This is a similar skirt: http://www.herroom.com/self-expressions-00872-power-1-2-slip.shtml

But you can get it at any location that sells shapewear slips!

Good luck!
