This dress makes you WANT to be seen! Very stunning!
I rented this dress for the Marine Corp Ball. I loved it as soon as I saw it, and just knew it was going to fit me and flatter me in all the right places. I debated different sizes based on reviews, but I chose to choose between the 6R and 6L. Both fit perfectly, but I went with the 6L due to how the extra length in the back flattered me and the overall look. The right strap was very loose and gapped in the back, but fashion taped helped for the most part. I wore a Nu-Bra as well, due to the low V at the chest. The dress was a little snug around my back and under my arm pits, but I felt that it flattered my hips/tush/middle so well, that the top part did not take away from anything. I DID have to run out and get different shoes the night before though. The dress is definitely a rosy gold, like many other reviewers mentioned. Until you see it, its probably difficult to really tell, but the champagne/gold shoes i originally purchased just did not work. I wore a black fur stole/wrap and a satin black clutch, along with gold/diamond drop earrings and felt quite glamorous :) The dress photographs very well, and I must say, you just want to saunter and be seen in this dress. Definitely makes you feel beautiful!
