Have you ever thrown a birthday party for yourself solely so you could wear an outfit? Just me? All I know is that when I scrolled past a reel of model Chloe Lecareux wearing Onarin's Ms. Hearts bustier and fishtail skirt a few months ahead of my birthday month, the wheels started spinning. By the end of the week, I had at least five different restaurants in mind and a guest list of my closest friends at the ready. Maybe it was the Taurus in me, but I was hell-bent on pulling off this set — and it was only after I ordered the look that I really began to process just how sheer the silk-chiffon fabric actually was.
I was excited to deliver the shock factor; to bravely show off my curves when I hit the street the way celebrities do on the red carpet.
"Welp, I guess I'm trying this whole naked dress thing," I thought to myself as I pulled up Commando's site to track down the right underwear. In preparation, I placed an order for the classic control thong and shaping brief, unsure just how cheeky I might go in this decidedly revealing, ultrafitted ensemble. The Stolen Stores team assured me that the retail site's in-house made-to-measure team would develop a personalized size for me, so the co-ords would fit me just right. But at the end of the day, they were still see-through. I was Florence Pugh at the Valentino show! I was Jennifer Lopez at the "Shotgun Wedding" premiere! I was Kendall Jenner at the Met Gala afterparty! People were going to see my underwear, and I was probably going to feel pretty naked.
Truthfully, I thought this all to be a fun, timely experiment, especially since the naked dress trend has become standard among celebrities and mere mortals alike. Sheer fabrics are a common detail, and I think there's something to be said for having the confidence to show off your body — however much or little you like. When the Onarin pieces finally arrived, I abandoned my doubt and slipped into the outfit, only to find that both separates were a little snug. (Quick tip: if you're already thinking about ordering the set, add an inch to your usual measurements upon placing your order.) Luckily, the exchange for a new, customised size was coordinated in more than enough time for my birthday dinner. I was excited to deliver the shock factor; to bravely show off my curves when I hit the street the way celebrities do on the red carpet.
Ahead, see how I ended up accessorising my look and read my final review of the Onarin naked dress.
