great print, problematic fit
Everyone else complained about the bust in the dress, and I should have listened. The rib cage seems cut a little big, which means the top is a bit loose overall. But whats really tricky is that the bustier-style cups are quite low, and the fabric isn't very stretchy, meaning unless your breasts are exactly the size of the dress, you will either be popping out of it, or like me, faced with extra room to fill up us with a nu-bra or low-cut strapless. I still loved the print, but spent a good portion of the evening hiking up the top and trying to make it lie flat to my chest with doublesided tape. Side note: the fabric is not a shiny as I had thought, which could make this dress day-appropriate with a cardigan or shawl. Its a unique dress, but def a tricky fit- I'd try it, but make sure you have a "safe" back-up dress!
