Comfort, class and style for a super-fun family wedding- and we like to tear it up on the dancefloor
Unfortunately I don't think I got a full-length photo of this gorgeous dress, so the photo I've included will have to do. I ordered a 42 and a 44, I have a D&G blouse in 42 but since the dress is short and I am tall, I thought going up would be wise. I did end up wearing the 44- I wore a bustier style strapless bra that added about a cup size and the 42 didn't quite want to zip all the way up. I also wore a spanx-type half-slip (Maidenform I think, I got it at Target) with built-in boy shorts.
The fit is snug and was extra short (on me anyway, I'm 5'11), I felt beautiful and sexy and sophisticatedly feminine. This is pure D&G brilliance, amped-up sexiness without being trashy. I felt perfectly comfortable wearing this to my cousin's wedding, and was lavished with compliments from family and strangers, including from the couple's friends in their mid-20s. This dress is good for your ego! I didn't want to return it, and the only downside is that I may now find myself obsessed with keeping track of RTR's sales even though I can't imagine them ever retiring this one.
