Understated and Sleek Dress
I never wear tight, body con dresses, but I took a chance with this one for a formal black tie event, and I'm glad I did! I was looking for a dress that was understated (didn't want to draw attention), but still had a little spice to it, and so this one fit the bill. The material on the hanger is heavy, but once on, I didn't notice the weight of the fabric. This means that, although the dress hugs every part of your body, the material is think and durable, and felt comfortable while walking around the room, while eating, and while dancing. The swirls add a little bit of texture to an otherwise simple dress. I wore the 4R, and at 5'2 I wore about 2 inch heels and you could see the beginning of my toes. I think that a higher heel would have made the dress too short. The 6R was long enough then, but you can tell the difference when you wear the dress that the 6R was a little more lose in the straps and in the back. The 4R looked really sleek on me and I could still eat a lot (this is important to me). I didn't have any problems with the back being low, but I had to make sure that I held the dress when getting into/out of the car and when walking up/down stairs as not to step on the fabric. Really enjoyed the dress and how it made me feel!
