unique look and comfortable fit
This dress has really great lines, but requires some special attention to undergarments, considering the cut/fit of the top. Obviously, a regular bra doesnt work, but I also couldn't wear a strapless bandeau, as it showed on the sides and in the bottom of the V at the front. Your best bet would be to get the stick on cups or pasties, which I didnt plan for (oops). Overall, the dress runs just a little large, so you may want to consider wearing the smaller end of your fit (if you are between sizes). Especially since the waist seemed to have some extra fabric that I kept adjusting throughout the night. The material and color was really beautiful in-person (the dress is navy and the waist sash was black, which makes it work with black shoes), and the thigh-high slit was sexy without being garish. Got lots of compliments on it and it was very comfortable, which is equally/more important to me than look.
