Very pretty dress
I really wanted to wear this dress but ended up not wearing it because of a few little things added together.
1. Sizing was really weird - I'm usually a 0 in European sizes (wear 00 in BR and J. Crew). This dress was very tight in the rib cage, and for a second there, I thought I couldn't zip it up. When I did zip it up, it was loose in the chest area. As other reviewers noted, there is nothing to support the non strap side. I could have used double sided tape, but I would have been self conscious the whole night.
2. Extremely sheer - even though there is a lining, the dress was very thin and sheer. So much so that the zipper was making the left side of the dress uneven. The tag on the side of the dress had curled, and despite trying to tape it down, it was making the left of the dress stick out. Also, the outer layer was really thin, so every time I lifted the dress, the outer layer would cling together and bunch upward. I felt like if I were moving a lot, I would have to constantly smooth down my dress.
Those were the reasons that ultimately pushed me to not wear the dress. The length was actually perfect. I wore 3 inch heels, and the dress skimmed the floor like it is supposed to. The color was also gorgeous.
