Easy Rental, Gorgeous Gown.
This dress was my 'second style', i ordered 2 dresses for a formal event (Barrister's Ball for my boyfriend's law school). I was only able to order 1 size, because i ordered 2 sizes in my first choice dress. I was worried about what size to order because depending on the store, i can wear anything from a 2 petite (Ann Taylor) to a 6 regular. I have a chest (32 DDD/34DD), normal hips, a little bit of a booty and i'm 5 foot 4. I messaged the stylists' on this site, and after hearing my measurements she recommended a 6 regular.... it fit perfectly! The dress was a tad long, but with a 3-4 inch heel it would have been fine. The reason i chose to not go with this dress for the event was because the material was very unforgiving. You can see every detail of your body in it, and i have no idea how other girls wore underwear with it. I tried on a 'barely there thong' with it, and you could still see every detail.... no underwear is not my style so i was not going to wear it. I tried the dress on without anything on up top (no bra, cups, tape - nothing) and it looked fine. Because i have natural curves, i did not like the way the dress draped in the front. The material of the dress was soft and had a bit of weight to it, which made it feel elegant and formal... not cheap and tacky like some dresses at a department store. The jewels on the dip in the back were pretty.
Overall -- i think this dress would be gorgeous on a girl with less curvature to her body so that it 'hangs' better on her body. It was pretty... but maybe i would have liked it better in a dark color to hide more line/wrinkle/detail underneath! I hope this review helps!
