The perfect modern take on a sari for an Indian wedding!
This dress was a hit, and I received a lot of positive feedback on the photos I posted. The color is bright, the fabric is rich and beautiful and I loved the change in fabric and pattern on the bottom. The dress was knee-length, waist cinching, comfortable to dance in and an all-around great choice for the event.
Downsides: I'm a 34D and wore a bustier and a spanx-like skirt under the dress. This was a perfect choice, since the waist is pretty fitted but the zipper was VERY DIFFICULT. I don't know if it was from over use or previous renter abuse, but there was nothing obvious. If you have big boobs and need to pull up a side-zipper, you could understand how this took 15 minutes (including taking the dress off to make sure the zipper wasn't actually broken). The zipper was a 2 person job, and the dress was not overly fitted on me, it definitely was a perfect fit otherwise, apart from the 2nd issue I had with the dress: the bust area was stretched out.
Whoever rented the dress beforehand either had a significantly larger bust or the dress just has a larger chest area/the bust is supposed to be a bit looser? This made it so that I had to make sure the bustier wasn't showing under neath my right arm, since the white fabric sometimes peeked out. It wasn't a big deal, but it was a nuisance.
Apart from that, I was so excited to wear the dress and I enjoyed every minute I had it on. I was able to eat and dance while still looking pretty great, the only responsibilities of a wedding guest.
