Pockets are a girls best friend!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress was a dream to wear. It was the 2nd of two dresses I rented for the same weekend. I am a nursing instructor and we had our nurses' pinning ceremony and college graduation one day immediately after the other. I wore this dress to the graduation ceremonies since these are held mid-morning to early afternoon. I typically wear a size 8, and the 8 fit well, with some extra room, especially in the chest area. As a 36C, the top of the 6 just felt a little more secure for a professional appearance. This dress was lightweight and very daytime appropriate. The shape of the dress is definitely flattering to a girl with a little hip and booty. I only had 1 complaint and it was the layers on the skirt. The skirt has 3 layers, the outer shell you see, then a crinoline-like skirt liner, and lastly, a silk/satin liner that is closest to your skin. I had to wear the dress under a black graduation gown, so ended up with 4 layers sitting in the sunshine for about 2 hours. It did make it a little warm on the gams, but since all was lightweight it wasn't a major downside.
