Very comfortable for a summer wedding, classy enough to dazzle
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I chose the dress for its color, a dark and rich teal, and as I generally end up with Badgley Mishka as my first choice for their lovely, classic and wearable dresses. I was not disappointed, the dress was extremely comfortable and I got a lot of compliments. My usual size 4 fit well, although a bit tight around the hips initially, which caused the underskirt to creep up when walking (a slight problem I have encountered with B & M dresses before, likely overall better for the straight and narrow types), but the dress is made of stretchy material and fit perfectly after a few hours (including the underskirt), without looking out of shape.
Because of the silver/crystal accent, I combined the dress with silver/crystal accessories (I happened to have Badgley Mishka shoes that matched perfectly) which I found was an overall enhancement and looked classier (i.e. if you wanted to be low key, this dress would work as well, e.g. combined with lower heels and less ostentatious jewelry). I also like that the style of the dress allows to wear it with a regular bra.
