fun sparkly party dress, needs nubra
I rented this dress for a sequins themed party, it was great because the fit (and low neckline) are attractive and fun, but the blue isn't too attention-grabbing (balance out the low neckline). The angle on this photo is terrible and not flattering, but will give you an idea of the fit: I'm always a little nervous about the length, but for me (5'3) it was short enough. There is no structure in the bust and it is not as fitted as other Nicole Miller dresses similar to this (I'm thinking the Arctic Mist gown), so it won't help you with the cleavage if you're on the smaller side (I'm a B-), so without a bra this was not super flattering. I used a NuBra (the adhesive kind) and it was perfect (actually looked extra boobulous). I was worried about chafing given the other reviews, and I did have a little bit, but only in the armpit area and a small amount, nothing lasting, not a big deal at all. The dress has some stretch and is overall very comfortable to wear. The straps are a tad tight to get on, but I don't think that any looser would make a good fit. They didn't feel tight once on.
