Karina Dresses: Ruby Review

This post may contain affiliate links and/or Amazon affiliate links; I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

I feel like a Frockstar when I wear my Karina Dress! Never heard of a Frockstar? Neither did I until I checked out Karina. You can read the full Karina Manifesto but to sum it up it is basically the way Karina dresses makes you feel – like you can do anything, go any place, and do it all with style & grace.

Karina best fit

Karina Dresses offer what they call “Best Fit” or a style for everybody! Not only do they show you the different body shapes but they also have a list of what dresses they offer to complement that shape.

  • TRIANGLE ~ fuller hips, smaller top
  • INVERTED TRIANGLE ~ broader shoulders or fuller bust with smaller hips
  • RECTANGLE ~ hips, bust, and waist are similar size
  • OVAL ~ waist and bust are the same sizes with smaller hips
  • HOURGLASS ~ curvaceous, full hips and bust

The dress I chose was the Ruby in Green Tiles. This was my first review of them so I wasn’t sure how it would fit. But this was “the summer of the new me” (in case you missed it, I vowed to wear more dresses). Once it arrived, I did notice that the color seemed a bit different than online, more of an olive green than a brownish green, but I loved it, I liked the color much more! The green went more with my skin tone. Once I slipped in on, I didn’t want to take it off, it was so comfortable and roomy.

Green Tiles on the Ruby Karina Dress


I wanted to go outside my comfort zone so I went with a sleeveless dress with a faux wrap and an attached sash. The sash is pretty long, it comes down to almost the bottom of the dress. You can tie it several different ways but I liked mine in a bow. I received mine just in time to take with me to the Blogher Conference and wore it the first night (see images below). I love the way that I look in it. While it is a bit more accentuating on the top I love the way I feel when I am in it! Karina dresses are all machine washable, just hand dry and you do not need to iron them…another reason to love Karina Dresses!

    I think it’s so great that they put such a emphasis on a dress that makes YOUR shape look its best, a novel idea! 🙂

    I love that Karina suggests dress styles to flatter one’s body type. I am an hourglass and like the style and color of the Audrey Brown Zebra.

    The bonus is that these dresses are low-maintenance. Ironing is not my favorite chore.

    My wife likes Karina Dresses because they are made to fit different body types. Sometimes, d finding a dress that fits your particular body type.
