Just didn't work.
I really wanted to like this dress, but I just couldn't. It does run a tad small in the chest, so definitely order up if you have a large chest. The problems I had with it were three.. 1) the armholes really limit the bra you can wear, and, again, if you have a large chest, your bra selections are limited anyway. I finally found a bra that would have worked, but it looks really sloppy if you can't find one. 2) it's just not very well made, or perhaps the 10 I had was just at the end of it's life, but the fabric had snagged, the seams were all pulled, and the fabric was very informal and not appropriate for my cocktail event. 3) kinda related to 2, the dress isn't lined. With the fabric being thin and it being unlined, it's almost impossible to wear slimming garments underneath, even when you size up. If you don't mind a line from your pantyhose, spanx, underwear, etc, or if you can wear a jacket or shrug over it, go for it. All of my shape wear options underneath just looked sloppy and unpolished. In the end, I just went with a lbd in my closet.
