It was, officially, my first black tie event!
Well, I believe the dress is true to size for a size six! However, I am normally a size two to a size four. Unfortunately, they were out of stock on both for the time I needed the dress. It was one big chase after another to find another dress, but luckily, this size came through just in time. The fit was lovely everywhere except for the chest, and even with a strapless, I had to keep tugging all night. The sleeves weren't meant to hold the bodice up. I think had I received the size I originally wanted, it would have been a five star rating. My upper body is a bit narrow, but my bust is a 28 F (or victoria secret size of 32 DD) so that gives you an idea of how to fill up the bodice. You'll want it tight, definitely.
Nonetheless, it was a BEAUTIFUL dress. I received compliments all night saying how much I looked like a princess! The tulle was quite fun, and I really enjoyed myself, despite the tugging. However, the tulle can also be quite full when it comes to sitting down at the dinner table. So tuck constantly! The dress was the perfect height with one to two inch heels. The color is stunning, and you will definitely feel elegant the entire evening. Just make sure your event doesn't have silk napkins. They refuse to stay on your lap!
