Perfect party dress!
This dress is really cute. I rented for a friend's wedding weekend--I originally thought I'd wear it for the beach ceremony, but when I arrived, it was more casual than I anticipated (luckily I had rented a more formal backup option that worked perfectly). The fabric underneath the lace is a gray cotton/t-shirt material, so it won't work for a "fancy" event. However, it was perfect for the events the night before the wedding. The one thing I would say, though, is that this dress does NOT work with a regular bra as others have said (though maybe I was doing something wrong?). Straps show, and when I switched to a strapless, the back showed through the cutout. I ended up having to safety pin my bra to the dress so that it didn't show. Not a big deal, but you do need to be prepared for that & have safety pins on hand. Overall, a super cute, flattering dress!
