Fine for a white-themed NYE party, but too junior-looking IMO
I rented this for a white-themed New Year's party since I don't own anything white plus wanted something fun and sparkly, and it worked well for that purpose (it's more champagne-colored than pure white, but under the dim lighting you couldn't tell, especially since you mainly saw the silver sparkly accents of the lace). But I agree with another reviewer that this dress really felt 'junior'ish and immature/cheap to me both in style and fit, and it's not something I would normally gravitate towards or feel comfortable in otherwise- it was appropriate for this specific type of party, but as a 30-something I'd feel way too immature wearing it for another occasion. I got both the 6 and the 8, and ended up wearing the 8 because the length was a bit more in my comfort zone plus the bust was a bit less constricting, although in both sizes I found the waist on the tighter side and angled a bit oddly (too low for an empire, but too high for a usual waistline where a belt would normally go). Definitely needs nude-colored underwear and bra since the dress isn't very substantial with a sheer-ish slip, but the neckline does allow for a normal bra. I did get a few compliments throughout the evening, but probably wouldn't rent this one again unless I had another white NYE party to go to.
