Comfortable AND glamorous!
This dress was everything that I hoped it would be - it was form-fitting without being restrictive and the color was beautiful. I got so many compliments and the dress was incredibly comfortable all afternoon and night (I wore it to a black tie wedding in NYC...from the ceremony on through the reception, which was about 9 hours in total).
I do wish I got a shawl or something else to cover my back and shoulders during the ceremony though. This isn't an overly revealing dress by any means, but for a January wedding in a cavernous church with cold wooden pews, I felt a little exposed. Also, if you’re 5’6” or taller, are planning on wearing heels of even a modest height, and you'd like the dress to go all the way to the ground as it's pictured on the model, you should probably get the long. However, even though I am 5’6” and I wore about 3” heels, I was actually grateful for the regular because I didn’t want the dress to be dragging on the ground (the “train” just barely skimmed the ground, which was perfect). Overall, I’d definitely recommend this dress to anyone attending a formal affair!
