Cute dress for an informal wedding
I originally ordered this dress in a 6 and an 8 for a friend's wedding. The wedding was in an old warehouse loft that had been converted to an event space, and I felt this dress definitely fit in with the level of dress of the other guests. I didn't have the issue of being poked by the boning on the bodice that others had, but this may be an individual dress issue depending on levels of wear. I did choose the 6 over the 8 simply because I wanted it to be a little more fitted; however, going with the smaller size did put "the girls" on display a bit. My only two issues were it is very light and a little on the short side, so whenever a breeze blew by I had to check that I wasn't putting on a show. Also, when the dancing at the reception started I felt like I had to hold onto the top, not because it was slipping down but because my chest felt like it might pop out over the top. NBD, but something to think about. I didn't have to wear a bra with this, but did wear spanx. I felt like the fit easily concealed any problem areas, however, as it is meant to flare out a bit at the hips. Would definitely recommend.
