Flattering formal red dress for the USMC ball
I wore this to my husband's 241st Marine Corps ball. Being a former Marine myself, I had to find a dress worthy of the occasion! This dress definitely fit the bill, red color was amazing, wasn't too flashy, and a good canvas for accessories if desired. I am 5'2" 36B athletic build with wider back and shoulders, wore the 2P and it fit like a glove. I wore 3.25" heels for the dress to clear the floor. The dress doesn't stretch too much in certain areas; almost no more room to zip up if my back was any wider, so be weary of that. It does have stretch in the stomach area where the ruching is and down, as well as in the boob compartment, but to my surprise I didn't have to pull the dress up all night (I've barely got any boobs); there is wiring and cling material to prevent that. Looks great in photos and was comfortable!
