A random woman (younger than me, 20s) raved about the dress in the elevator when I left the party!
This dress was perfect for the work event I went to - a Saturday night cocktail party (colleagues as well as executives were there). I was concerned at first about the back and the lace (would it be too much skin?) but for a Saturday night, this was the right option for sure. I ended up wearing the size 8 (vs. the 6) - even though I usually wear 6s, I'm truly in between sizes and have an hourglass / athletic build - the 8 gave enough room for that, while I couldn't get the 6 over my hips. The 8 fit like a glove - over the hips, cinched at the waist, just right over the bust & across the shoulders - overall, very form fitting. The dress was also thick enough that I didn't have to wear a bra (I bought strapless cups and fashion tape just in case, but didn't end up needing them). Also, the back is high enough (over the butt) so that you can wear control-top hose without them peeking out at all. I felt stunning all night and would highly recommend this dress!
