The perfect simple black bridesmaids dress!
This dress was perfect for my sister and I to wear for as bridesmaids in our father's wedding. We were looking for a very simple black gown that we felt good in. I love the way it looked on the both of us and it has a very flattering silhouette. However, we had a lot of a trouble with the sizing at first. The size chart for this dress (it may be site wide) states that you should get a Long if you are between the height of 5'7"-6'1". I am about 5'11" and my sister is 5'8". Since we were both going to wear heels we decided to both get 2L's. This was a big mistake. Thankfully for my height I was able to pull it off with the right heels but for my sister we needed to last minute run to the Rent The Runway store who luckily had one 2R available to switch it out with! I extremely advise if you are considering getting a Long please double check the measurements and what height heels you are wearing. I also strongly advise to take note that once a dress size is Long, especially a strapless dress, that the size will be a little bigger. I feel my perfect size would have been a 0L for around bust since it kept falling. For my sister her perfect size would have been a 4R, since we assumed the 2L fit perfectly except for the length that the 2R would work. Once it was a regular length, the dress became very tight and she needed to change into a spare dress halfway through the party. Overall I highly recommend this dress, just please be sure you are choosing the right sizes!!
