Didn't wear it, but hubby enjoyed taking the photo anyway!
This dress is true to the photo as far as color and material.
It was quite flattering with my tan and looked nice with gold accents.
This was my back up dress and I usually wear a 6, BUT I thought it may fit because my hips are big and it's loose in that. The 4 was VERY tight on my chest (32/34 C but mommy-type shaped, and if you don't know what that means, you're lucky). Generally I have to wear a bra, but it really was THAT tight. Despite how tight it was, it still felt like it was falling down, which was weird. Also it may have given me a bit of arm pit wings. Oh, AND my boobs needed a little more shape since I didn't wear the bra, so I had some pads in this photo.
Now, if this HADN'T been my backup dress, it would have been better with a size 6 and a padded or push up corset-type bra (which may have given it enough support that it didn't feel like it was falling).
The skirt fit the hips and bum just like you'd think a full skirt would.
