Too small to breathe (ribcage area) but such a gorgeous dress!
The length was perfect for me, with heels on it barely skimmed the ground and I'm 5'7". The material is this gorgeous navy and royal blue print with silver threading, which I'm sure would have looked gorgeous in the sun. I could not wear the dress to the event planned, however, because I felt it was jus way too tight under my breasts, down almost to my hips. The hips are more of a "free size" and I have a small waist (relative to my hips) so I think this might just be cut on the smaller side. The other issue that bugged was I couldn't figure out how to get the straps across my shoulder just right. I thought there were only two straps, as shown, but there are actually 3! They never felt quite right and like they might fall down at any moment. I probably wouldn't rent this again, but on the right body type it would probably be amazing. I did feature it on my blog, dressedfortime.com, just to show how I styled it.
