I bet I was the most glamorous mama there!
The model is super tall, so the dress looks very short. but since I'm only 5'3', the length was perfect. It came to a few inches above my knee. Still conservative, but a hint of sexy. I was expecting black and white, but the white is more of a silver/gray. Not a big deal. I also expected the lace to be actual lace, but it is just printed on the fabric. This turned out to be a good thing because it made the dress less "fragile," and I was holding my 3 1/2 month old daughter for a lot of the evening, so I didn't have to worry about the lace snagging on anything, etc. The sleeves are great, but when you lift your arms it does show a good amount of the armpit area. I used the provided fashion tape to fix that (thank you, RTR!). Overall, it fit beautifully and I loved it!! I wore the dress to a black tie wedding and felt perfectly dressed.
