Beautiful color! Perfect for a sunset dinner!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I wore this dress for our 2nd Wedding Anniversary dinner in Key West. I wanted a dress which would complement the spectacular sunset of KW, was a flirty date dress, and would be comfortable to carry around my 4 month old son who joined us for our sunset dinner. I had the dress delivered to our hotel, so I packed according to the recommendations.
Pretty high standards, I know!!!
All in all, it was a very pretty color... a mix of a light, bright, airy orange and coral on top. The skirt was light and flowy; perfect with the wind on the pier. It popped with my skin tone, and was quite pleasing to the eye. My husband liked it... not a WOW effect, but he said that it was very pretty.
It is evident in the pictures that it definitely matched the sunset; so CHECK there! In regards to the fit: the size 10 dress was pretty tight on the top of the back (right below the key hole cut). Unfortunately, the 12 fit like a burlap sack, so I had to go with the 10. The pulling was only noticeable from the back, so not a big deal. It wasn't very comfortable, but I was able to move around as a new momma needs to!! Lastly, I wore this with a regular bra, as was recommended, but my black bra straps kept showing on the shoulder (see the 2nd picture), and peek-a-booed under the arm. Boo!!
