Great, fun dress for NYE!
I really liked this dress and received many compliments on it. Sorry for the dark picture - it was the only one I had that showed the entire dress! I thought this was a fun, not too formal dress for a night out. I usually wear a size 4 in 'store brands' (such as Express) and a 2 in 'designers' (such as BCBG), so that's why I decided on the 2 - especially after reading other users' reviews - and it fit perfectly without gaping in the back. I think a 4 would have been too big, actually. Here some pros and cons:
*Can wear a bra with this dress (though I used some fashion tape to make sure my straps didn't show)
*Very comfortable jersey material. I wore this dress for 10+ hours and I wasn't dying to take it off :)
*Fits pretty true to size, though I could see how it could run slightly big so if you're on the fence I'd size down
*No gaping in the back (but perhaps that's because of my height?)
*Can be worn with many types of jewelry, including a necklace
*Very vibrant blue
*This is very minor, but the dress appeared if it had been worn quite a few times. The lace overlay was slightly 'fuzzy' in some parts, but it definitely wasn't noticeable to anyone. This is the only reason I gave it a 4.
