Gorgeous color, but odd fit- too short on me!
OK, I understand this is a sheath dress, and as such, it's going to fit loosely/straight. However, I still felt it was an odd fit- perhaps a bit stretched out? I ordered the S and XS, and didn't notice much difference between the sizes in the overlay. The XS slip was WAY too short on me, so I wore the S slip under the (very slightly more form fitting) XS lace overlay. It worked, but I still wore little spandex workout shorts underneath, and am glad I did.... My butt was directly on the seat at the wedding, and I would not have been able to dance at all if I hadn't been wearing shorts underneath! I also didn't think the sleeve area was very flattering, but that may just be me- I don't like cap sleeves on me, which is what these felt like. I have a long torso and short legs, so this may have added to the too-short factor. Oh, and I wore it with a pair of long suggested orange-and-crystal earrings- I liked them together. Maybe it's because we were a little late to the wedding (eeek!!!) but I didn't get any compliments on this dress... so not exactly a showstopper. Comfy, and gorgeous color, but with the oddly loose fit and length issue, I wouldn't rent again.
