Great New Year's Eve party dress!
I rented this dress for a New Year's Eve party. It was very comfortable. I am usually a size 4, but recently gained about 10 lbs so I got both the 4 and 6. Both of them fit, but I ended up wearing the 6. I didn't notice a lot of difference between the sizes except the 4 was slightly tighter in the torso. The zipper is a little difficult to get up and down. The skirt does poof out, but I didn't find it to be unflattering. I have a pear shape and am sensitive to that, but I don't think it made my hips look bigger. It's pretty evident that's just the shape of the skirt, at least that's what my friends and I thought. The pocket in front is cute and a great place to keep your phone easily accessible for photos! I got several compliments on the dress (especially the back of it) and felt great wearing it. If I were to try it on in a store, I don't think I would have bought it, but it was definitely fun for the night. Probably not a great dress if you have big bust as it was pretty form fitting. You can wear a regular bra which is nice, and I even debated going without one altogether as the brocade material is thick enough that you don't necessarily need one.
