In full disclosure, I rented this dress because I am 3.5 months pregnant and needed something to get me through a wedding as my current dresses are starting to get tight but I am not at the point of wearing maternity clothes. I did end up wearing this dress, but it was not flattering at all. I think it would look much better on tall thin women than shorter ones. The break in the dress happens at an odd place so it has the tendency to make you look bigger than you are or disproportioned. The dress itself was huge. I got a 6 and an 8 and could have used a 2 and a 4, even pregnant and even when I am not super skinny (just regular sized). I did rent the necklace shown with the dress and really liked that. It is heavy, but very cute. Lastly, the prior reviews are accurate that the straps are quite long on this dress and I too needed to pin them down. All in all, cute dress, but wasn't the best look for me. But then again, nothing is looking or fitting tremendously well right now!
