This was one of several choices I had for a wedding, I didn't wear it.
My friend surprised his girlfriend with a proposal, to be immediately followed by the wedding - a secret, surprise wedding that he had been planning - without her knowing - for the last few months. I was asked to be in his wedding ~3 weeks before the event. He wanted the bridesmaids in hunter green. Where was I supposed to find a hunter green dress in May?! I rented this one and had co-workers loan me 3 other options. In the end, I went with a borrowed dress instead of this one.
I am a bit more curvy than the model in the picture - I have a bigger bust and wider hips. In both the 2 and the 4, the dress just didn't seem to sit right on my curves. I had a belt and I think I could have made the dress work if I had cinched it. But, it was also pretty warm that evening so the long sleeves would have been too hot.
Pretty dress, loved the color but just not a good fit for me that night.
