One of my favorite dresses! After I tried it on, I wanted to buy it! Proud owner now!
So easy to wear! I tried this on at the Las Vegas RTR and was in love with it! I couldn't go smaller than a size 6 (I wear a 36B to accommodate my wide ribcage/shoulder blades) at my thinnest! I'm only 5'2" and it hit just a few inches above the knee. Perfect length to be sophisticated. I rented it to go on a dinner date with boyfriend and he was thrilled with it! He even negotiated to buy it for me if I quit smoking x 90 days..lol
When it came on sale I did buy it, had to get size 8, as they were out of the size 6. The 8 is a little looser/not as fitted for sure, but that's fine for me too, cuz then I can sit and eat comfortably and be fine (for those boated days). I have several other more fitted dresses and am glad to have a looser fitting one, depending on the event. It has very little give to the fabric. Lined nicely. Sequins didn't bug me much at all, but I didn't go dancing, so I don't know how that will go yet. I'm not busty (36B) and had plenty of room for the girls in the 8 and can wear a push-up or standard bra. The size 6 was so fitted I needed to skip the bra. If you are in a D cup you'll need to size up. I am more straight figured with broad shoulders, but if you are thick in the butt/thighs this may pose a problem for you, so size up. The color of light to dark (purple to black) with the sparkle makes this dress a stand out, but is very stylish and not obnoxious at all. I like it so much that if goes on sale in a size 6, I'd probably by that one too for a more fitted and slightly shorter look.
