Beautiful, elegant, statement making, comfortable and wearable gown, awesome for black tie/weddings!
Fit: True to size. I'm usually a 2, a 0 on a good day, and the 0 was way too tight for my imperfect hips/waist. 5 lbs ago I could probably have fit in the 0. Short girls - order the P (petite sizes) if you don't plan on wearing more than a 3 inch heel. I wore 5.3 inch YSLs so those worked for my 5'2" height. It was a very good length. I think this dress will work whether you are busty or not - because the material is stretchy and somewhat forgiving, you will fit just right if you are small, and if you are larger, you will fill it out nicely. The top fits a little bit large.
Pros: Stretchy and forgiving fit, elastic material. Very elegant, very classy, the thigh slight hits perfectly on the leg, super versatile, no necklace needed if you do earrings and a bracelet on the strapless arm side. It really is like getting 2 looks in 1. It is a very unique and stylish dress. You will no doubt receive compliments on it.
Cons: SEE THROUGH!! Beware, if you are wearing a strapless bra, wear a BLACK one. No nude, no white. I wore a nude strapless bra first and thank goodness I had taken a picture before leaving the house. With the flash, you could see the bra through the dress. Solution for me was throwing a black bandeau over my bra since I don't have a black strapless. I also hooked the strap on the convertible bra under the covered shoulder for extra support. Other than it being slightly sheer under the flash of a camera, the flap thing can be annoying if you are particular. Also noticed the long sleeve/shoulder area on the covered side was a little baggy, even with my broad shoulders. Lastly, the material seems a bit thin/elastic I think I would have liked something a tiny bit thicker or sturdier.
