Great Cocktail dress - Fit Description Misleading
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
LOVED this gown and it would have been perfect with my Manolos for my friend's wedding, but alas, it did not fit.
The problem: though the outer skirt was a floaty A-line (very forgiving for those of us with curvy hips and booties), the UNDER skirt was a straight, stretch-less sheath. In A-line skirts, I can wear an 10 or 12, but with sheaths, I usually need a 14 or higher. This drives me crazy when I order online; if there is a shape difference between the outer and inner skirts, it needs to be noted in the description.
I had to return it. It was a shame too - SO pretty!
I would give the look of the dress 5 stars, but the description 0 stars... so I've settled on 3 stars.
