Beautiful dress but definitely not made for athletes!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous, however, do size up if you have athletic arms because the sleeves are very tight! I could not for the life of me lift my arms up while wearing this dress, and when I flexed my elbow (for example when I brought the fork to my mouth during dinner time) the lace bulged up on my arm, making me look like Shar-Pei! I am normally a true size 4 - sometimes sizing down, never up. I have even worn the Nha Khahn sweet talk dress, which is tight on the arms but has a little more give. Some reviewers say that the lace stretched a little throughout the day but I didn't experience this. Also, one of the sleeves had a hole, which was in an obvious place. I would rent the dress again, because it really is gorgeous, but definitely a size larger.
