Gorgeous dress accentuated assets and hides imperfections for a perfect, comfortable!! party dress!
I got tons of compliments on this dress! The color is an awesome alternative to the usual black or red dresses we usually do around Christmas.
The bust is pretty low cut. I'm a 36D, and it fit great but definitely displays the girls! I needed one of those extra low cut bras to wear it without showing the middle part of the bra between the cups. BUT--it was a regular, strapped bra, so I had the support I needed! Woo hoo!
The tightest part of the waist of the dress is right below the bust area, so it highlighted the thinnest part of my middle while providing a little bust support, too.
The gathered fabric in front is not too bulky and didn't add extra weight to a place where I'm already a bit too fluffy. I've gained a bit of weight lately but was still able to feel confident and gorgeous in this dress!
The length is nice, too, because it is not too short. I'm 5'7", and this fell a few inches above my knees.
Con: the zipper in the 10 is TOUGH, and not just because the dress was too tight. It's hard to zip even on the hanger. You'll probably need someone else to zip it because you likely can't do it alone. Use the hook and eye to line it up a bit first and then have someone strong to zip it up. My husband zipped it without the hook when I first tried it on, but when my friend did it by connecting the hook first, it went a lot easier. The 8, which was my backup size, was not as tough to zip as the 10, so I think there's something wrong with the 10. But, even with this slight problem, it's still an amazing dress!
The sequins are also a bit scratchy, but they aren't any more scratchy than other sequined tops.
