Comfortable, cute, and functional for NYE
I decided just a few days before NYE to rent this dress. I'd see it on a friend a few years ago and looked good on her, plus, I wanted something that i wouldn't be freezing in. This dress was very comfortable and I ended up wearing my backup size small instead of the medium - I'd definitely size down as some other reviewers have said as well. The dress was a little short but not too short. Wearing the small made me feel more secure with the low dipping back, otherwise it felt like the shoulders might fall down a bit. I also liked the way the bottom part hit my waist better on the small vs. the medium (I didn't see much difference in length between the 2 sizes). It's a little fluffy on the bottom so you don't really need spanx, and the pockets are great - I didn't have to bring a purse. Since the dress is short, it also looks okay to wear flats. The dress is fairly simply so you can dress it up with a chunky necklace. I'd rent it again, maybe for a fall or winter wedding.
