I wore this dress for my bridal shower and got SO many compliments!
The dress photographs really well. It's very fun and bright. I am a pretty true size 4, but as a bustier girl, this dress was tighter in the chest (as the other reviews said). Unfortunately, RTR didn't have the size up, so I had to wear the 4 or nothing. I decided to just wear a different bra with less padding and support to make it fit better in the chest. Also, the alignment is very off. Other girls touched on this, too, and it's a bit difficult to explain but on the stomach area, the dress shifts to the right, so I often put my hands in the dress pockets to try and nonchalantly shift it back to center which was pretty annoying. And it's noticeable when it shifts because the dress has two folds in the front where it flares out a bit, so if those two lines are off-centered, people can tell. The dress is difficult to zip - I couldn't do it alone. Also, know that the undertone was more of a blush color and the sparkles are silver with a few black sparkles between. Originally it looked gold to me, but it's silver. Despite all of this, I got a TON of compliments - girls were obsessed with my dress at the shower and afterward on social media. Plus, the photos turned out really fun with the sparkle. So, all in all, I'd say the stress of making it fit right was worth it!
