This is a beautiful dress with the right amount of sparkle.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
If I had gone out shopping for a dress to wear to a family wedding, I probably wouldn't have picked this one. It runs a little big but doesn't have any stretch or give, so choosing between two sizes means choosing between the comfortable one (for me, my regular size 4) and the better looking one (2). It's also pretty prickly to the touch, as observed by both wedding date and three year old cousin who wanted to dance propped up on my hip.
All that said, it is a gorgeous dress--beautifully made, conservative (at least on short legs like mine) without being boring, attention-getting without being attention-grabbing (and wedding goers, don't worry, it's no where near white). It's probably better suited to a model's body, but I had a great time wearing it.
