Gorgeous dress, but bust area made it not work for me
I got this dress as my backup for a weekend in Vegas. The color, the material and the cut are all beautiful, I will definitely try Herve Ledger dresses again. They are so fitted you need someone to zip you in and they hug beautifully, but they do leave little to the imagination. What didn't work for me was the bust area, which sat too high. I'm a 32C, and it looked weird that the strip of fabric that looks like it should sit below the bust line, actually went right over the bust line on me. Its not that the triangles of bust fabric were too small, just that the straps weren't long enough to get them down to the right spot. I was concerned this might happen from other reviews, which is why it was my backup. But others have pics where it sits perfectly, so I think it may fall right for a shorter or more petite person, or perhaps a smaller bust. It was better when I tried it without the bra, but I knew I would just fiddle with it all night,so I opted for my 1st choice which worked out great.
