This dress was PERFECT! Not only did I fit the wedding's earthy theme, I was complimented all night!
While the dress fit me as well as a 2 normally does, it was a little short even for my petite (5'0) frame. I used my normal tactic of wearing spandex shorts (spankies) underneath and was comfortable all night. The size 4 (back-up size) was much lower quality than the 2 (pills all over, misaligned lines, replacement button on the back), so even if the 2 didn't fit, I would have stuck with it. As reviews say, the dress is a lot bluer than the preview shows (navy blue base, teal striping), but that's what I liked best about it. I spent the whole night feeling like I was bordering mermaid/fairy territory and I loved it. The cut accentuated my frame excellently (large bust, short legs, no problem!), but I think it would work great on all body types. 5/5 stars for sure. A perfect first RTR experience!
