Gorgeous on the right body.
From the hips up, this dress fit like a dream. It just grazed the floor with 3" heels. The skirt, however, is a very narrow column that didn't work on my wide-hipped frame. If you've got more of a straight, athletic figure, I think this dress will look wonderful, since it pulls you in at the middle and creates curves even where there aren't any, but if you've got a true hourglass shape, it's probably best to stick to shorter Leger dresses. Another thing to note about this dress is the weight. It probably weighs around 5 pounds; the fabric is quite heavy, so it's a great option for a winter event but may be less ideal for a summer one. Finally, there's not much support in the bust, and the straps fit fairly loosely, so if you need some help up top, this might not be the dress for you. All that said, if it hadn't featured my hips so prominently, I would have been in LOVE with this dress.
