This dress made my senior prom an unforgettable one.
I'm usually a 2 or a 4 for dresses, so I ordered a 4 and a 6 after reading the reviews to make sure one of the dresses I purchased would fit me, which was definitely a smart choice. There's no way a 2 would have fit me. The 4 was a bit tight, just around the neck a little and the armpits, but it fit better than the 6, which was too loose and didn't look as flattering. The dress is mostly constricting in the ribs/chest area so if you have smaller ribs/waist you can do a smaller size, but if you have a larger waist/ribs then stick with bigger sizes. The dress looked like it was made out of high quality material, and was very soft. It's a very dark navy blue, and it looked almost black in some of the photos. This of course helped as it made me appear slimmer. The way the top was made, there's no need to wear a bra, unless you are especially large-chested (I'm a small 34C). I was worried when I first put it on that the 4 would be too small because I couldn't zip it up myself, but once I had someone else do it, it was just fine. I'm 5'3" and I was worried about the length when reading the reviews, but I got the regular length for both of the sizes and wore 4 inch heels, and the length was absolutely perfect. It was just about the ground but didn't show any of the shoe. I did have to take off my heels towards the end of the night, but the dress didn't drag too much on the ground so it wasn't much of a problem. This dress is extremely fabulous, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have a somewhat of a defined waist because that is what this dress highlights, while it makes your hips appear a bit bigger. Overall it’s a fabulous dress I would recommend to anyone!
