Great, shapely, conservative and eye-catching. Loved it!
Post-baby, I wanted to rent rather than buy a dress while I'm still changing sizes. I am 5'3" and 122 lbs right now, and the 4 fit a bit tight, but it fit. I was worried about the bust because I'm still nursing and wear a DD bra, but it fit well around the bust. The shape of the skirt is awesome and has a very slimming effect at the waist. The one thing I did no appreciate about the dress -- the lining was a bit too long and I had to bunch it up a bit so it didn't make the hem of the skirt hang strangely. Kind of annoying, but it was manageable. The dress fabric is pretty stiff, so don't anticipate it giving much. Skirt hit right above my knee, which was great. And while you may not be able to tell from the pictures, the black lines on the dress are ribboned on the fabric -- not a print. So, it was even cooler than I thought it was going to be. Great quality fabrics and construction. Wore it with a bring pink statement necklace and some red peep toe heels -- it was by far the best dress of those I tried on and I got lots of compliments. And I felt great in it.
