great color, quality material
For a pear shape, this dress was not the best. I loved the top half of the dress- the deep v neck and t-strap back was super flattering, however, the top ran very large and I needed the smaller size of the two I ordered to avoid the unflattering gapping that occurred with the larger size. The bottom half does not necessarily run small, but if you are a pear like me, and take the smaller size so that the top fits better, the trade-off is the bottom half will be a bit too small. The fabric has stretch, so it wouldn't be an issue but the skirt of the dress is constructed in a "wrap" style - not really a "slit" as described in other reviews - and the top flap that "wraps" around opens to the point of exposing your leg up to the waist - it was a pain holding down the top flap most of the night. A great dress, but I wouldn't recommend it for pear shapes.
