I felt like a sparkly Greek goddess in this dress!
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is a darker gold. Extremely comfortable to wear. The material is very light and has a cotton feel to it. It's very flattering (very forgiving in the stomach area) and the free hips made it very easy to move around in. The one-shoulder strap is beautifully designed. It's simple, but very elegant. Cons: It is a longer dress. I'm 5'3 and was in four-inch heels, and I still had to apply garment tape to the bottom of the dress in order for me to not trip over it. In the back of the dress, there is extra material above the waist. When it is zipped up, it looked like there was a pocket of air in the back. It gave the dress a bit of a saggy look. It wasn't too noticeable, since I have longer hair, but I definitely caught it right away. I'm not sure if this was because of my height, though. This dress definitely seems to be made for a taller person. Also, if you have a smaller bust (like me), be sure to wear a padded bra. Because the fitting is more constricted up top, you will need this extra padding to not appear flattened out. To sum it up: if you are tall and busty, this dress will be perfect for you. If you are shorter and smaller-busted, it will still work, but you will have to make some adjustments. All in all, it's a very nice dress.
