So comfortable & Flattering!
I wore this dress for an outdoor black tie optional wedding, and it was perfect! I typically wear a 12L, and ordered the 14L as a backup....thankfully, because the 12 was no way going to work. The color is beautiful and eye catching, one of my friends called it "goddess-like". It fits snug in the chest, ribcage, and waist, then cascades loosely down. I loved the fit of this dress because it accentuates the bust and hugs the waist, but hides the stomach, hips, and thighs. The description states that you can wear any normal bra with it, but after my bra straps kept creeping out, I decided to remove my bra altogether. I am a size 36D, and felt that even without the bra, I was secure...even on the dance floor.
At 5'10, I thought it best to order a Long size. It was too long to wear with flats, a touch short to wear with my 4" heels, but perfect with a small 2" heel.
I spent a total of 11 hours in this dress ( from 1pm-12am), and stayed comfortable the entire time. Normally, I'd be fantasizing about ripping a formal dress off the second I got home. This was definitely not the case in this dress, it was a dream to wear. I highly recommend this dress, and even more so, this company. They were a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to my next event that will give me an excuse to rent this dress.
