OK dress, not as flattering or fancy as I had hoped
I rented this dress to wear on NYE. I'm a true 6/8 - half the time the six fits, half the time the eight does. Only the 8 was in stock, so I took a chance as a lot of the reviews said that the dress was a little tight in the arms and bust. I'm small, but have a big bust and big hips...you know how it goes. Anyway, this dress came early and I tried it on. Not the perfect NYE dress for me. It was a little baggy and just didn't give off the WOW look I wanted for NYE. I had another house party that night so I decided to belt it and wear it out. I'm glad I did. It looked cute with the belt. I started to wonder if the six might have given me more shape and been a better overall fit. The dress is very pretty and super comfortable, but probably not the best "special occasion" outfit...at least for me.
