I got so many compliments on this dress!
Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress and several others from the same designer (Carmen Marc Valvo) within the plus size line run rather small. I would suggest ordering 2 sizes up. Even with the larger size, the arms on this dress were VERY TIGHT and I don't normally have problems with my arms fitting into things. The fabric is beautiful but has zero stretch - it's very structured. Even though this dress was somewhat uncomfortable on my arms (very pinch-y, lol) I would still recommend it because it just looked so bloody good on. I received countless compliments over the course of the evening, so the temporary discomfort was worth it - just like a good pair of stilettos. Loved the off the shoulder look and fitted body...
