Casual In The Front, Sexy In The Back
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress to wear to a brunch with my bridesmaids and then to a Jack & Jill party immediately afterwards. I wanted something that was appropriate enough for both occasions, and so when I found this dress, I was really excited to wear it.
The material was actually much different than I expected. I thought it would be a bit soft and flowy, but it was more of a stiff, heavy feel without much stretch. i couldn't pull the sleeves up as high as they were on the model.
The pockets were nice, but because the material was already kind of bulky, I did feel like the added pockets drew a bit of attention to my already wide-enough hips.
The back was nice, and added a bit of sexiness to the dress. I did use a little fashion tape to keep it from gaping too much, but I probably would've been fine without it.
Standing up, the dress fit great, but sitting down, it did ride up a bit and made it rather short. I was very careful when I bent over to not give everyone a show.
I paired the dress with some brown heels and pearl earrings.
Overall, the dress was perfect for what I needed. I got tons of compliments, and felt fairly comfortable wearing it for 10 hours of the day :)
