Rented this for a wedding on a beautiful ranch in CO. Got so many compliments and so many questions on where I got it and who designed it.
I wore a Nu-Bra underneath, which did not show at all and did not even slip after hours of (vigorous) dancing. You definitely need something or else you will show! I also was worried about my tummy after eating/drinking, so I wore a spanx-esque thing ("commando") under, which was great. The dress was pretty tight to any bumps/unflattering areas on your stomach or butt that you don't want other people to see, even though it looks flowing on the model here, so unless you have a model figure, probably need one... Difficult to find something that fit under the dress because of the low back and the way that the left leg seam goes much higher (which was hot), but I ended up using the fashion tape that RTR provided (thank you!) to tape together the dress so that it didn't show. Also, I taped the back of the dress where there is a square-ish flap of fabric into the inside of the dress so it was less abrupt and more flowing. As for the others' comments about the seam, I actually twisted the dress to the right so that the seam swerved to the side instead of going down the middle. And anyone who is short like me, should not be concerned -- the asymmetrical cut is very, very flattering even on short legs. :)
Definitely recommend this dress -- turns heads and pops in a crowd. Also really fun to twirl around in on the dancefloor!
