I felt fabulous! And I could still move around...
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit me like a glove. I usually wear a 6 in mass retail (Gap, Banana, Ann Taylor etc.) but in high fashion, I'm usually an 8. This dress comes in Euro sizing so I ordered the 8 and 10. The 10 was perfect for my 38.5" hips and 34A bust. I wore a padded convertible bra, with one strap. I had to tape the non strapped cup to my chest because my boob kept popping out - beware boob escape. I also wore Spanx to smooth everything out. Even though the dress has a slit, there was no Spanx peaking out when I crossed my leg. The dress was comfortable and unique and I absolutely love the color. The filter on my camera makes it look red, but it is really a fall foliage orange color. The wool crepe was perfect for a late September wedding. I was never too hot. And since my 4-year-old son was in the wedding, it was very important that I be able to move a lot. This dress was great for function and fashion. I would rent it again in a heartbeat!
And because I love being a little funky, I wore gold shoes and navy nail polish!
