Not right for me, but very nice!
I LOVE the way Herve Leger fits me & I have found a lot of success renting this designer from RTR in the past. I am tall, so I prefer the dresses that hit at the knee as they are often the most flatter & the shorter ones are not appropriate for me. This particular dress fit the bill it that respect. It hit at the knee (just as shown on the model in the pic) & it was extremely flattering on my hips, waist, but, etc.
The style of the top part of this particular dress was not flattering for me. I am hourglass, but I do have smaller shoulders & so even with boobs I appear to be more bottom heavy in some clothes. The neckline of this dress narrows, so it would be great for someone who is broader shouldered trying to look smaller, but for me, it had the opposite effect & I went from hourglass to pear. In addition, I could not wear any type of bra with it & without a bra the bandage material made my Cs look deflated & smooshed.
Beautiful color, great dress from the waist down (for me). Probably perfect for many women, but not me. Ladies reading this review that have similar figures to mine, proceed with caution when ordering this dress & plan a backup style.
