Thick and well made, but a bit matronly.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Even after adding cute stockings, heels, sparkly earrings, and a bowed belt, I still felt a bit frumpy in this. It's certainly quality and well made (the material is surprisingly thick and heavy), but if you're a shorter gal like me (5'3), it just looks matronly. I wore a smaller size, but I still felt like it looked somewhat boxy around my waist and arms. And I realize the model is taller than me, but I've never had this much of a discrepancy between how long the dress was on the model and how long it was on me. It hit almost the bottom of my knees, and with the long sleeves and thick material, it felt like a dress more appropriate for an older woman. I know the cut-out is intended to add a bit of sexiness to the garment, and while it did keep it from being a total snoozefest, the cut-out was smaller than I thought it would be and therefore didn't really do the trick.
If you're a shorter woman and looking for something incredibly modest and "safe", look no further. I personally wouldn't rent this again.
