Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is absolutely beautiful. I wore it to prom and it was perfect. I'm in cheer, track, and cross country, so I'm very thin. But I'm 5'7 and have long legs, so I ordered this dress in a 2L. It fit me very well except for the fact that I have small boobs (34A) and the bust of the dress stuck out in the front. And the V in the back pokes out a little because of all the pleating on the fabric. I taped them both, but unfortunately the tape provided doesn't work that well. It wasn't that big of a deal, and the dress still looked beautiful. The cap sleeves are a little tight as well, making it a little hard to lift up your arms. The color of the dress is more of a nude than the way it looks in the picture, so if you have light skin, you might look washed out. I also have strawberry blonde hair, so I figured that it would make the dress blend even more. So when I was shopping for my prom accessories, I decided to go with black to counter the dress. I got black jewelry, shoes, and a clutch. When the dress arrived, something was still missing, so I took black tulle and tied it around my waist, making a bow in the back. It went together perfectly. I also wore a black blazer for when we went out to dinner or when I was outside. Some of you may be thinking that it's not worth it to spend $400 to only wear the dress once. Money is really tight nowadays. But I honestly think it was worth every penny. You're only young for a short while, so why not make the most of it? You don't get too many nights to dress up and feel like a princess before you're stuck in a cubicle. I had a beautiful evening with the people I love the most and it wouldn't have been as special if I just settled for any other dress than the one my heart desired.
Be sure not to get this dress just because the model looks great in it. She's a model. And she's supposed to look excellent in everything she wears. Lighting, makeup, editing, and expensive equipment also contribute to how great she looks. So make sure you're smart about which dress you choose.
And unfortunately, due to the camera my mom used, the pictures of me in this dress are too large to upload on this website. But I'd be happy to send you any pictures you like or answer any questions you have through email.
I hope this review helped in some way!
