Sexy, flattering, fun Herve Leger in an interesting color! LOVE!
This dress was amazing for my 25th high school reunion. I am 5'5" and it hit mid-thigh. The S fit perfectly, though it did showcase the "girls" quite a bit. I have a small ribcage, and the S was almost snug but comfortable for me. The XS was too small in the waist to be comfortable all night, and would have been vulgar in the chest area! I am 34C, 25", 37" hourglass, 123 lbs. The color has more lavender to it than just a flat grey. I was glad the model photo showed gold heels. I wouldn't have thought of wearing gold, but I loved it with the dress. I wore a full slip underneath that has no bra cups, but gave a little lift and kept everything nice and smooth. The dress itself provides its own Spanx-like effect, I just wanted a little more since I'm 43 and not as toned as I used to be! . The shoulders stayed up just fine all night, and that was a concern since I tend to be narrow in the shoulders. The skirt is a fun accent and makes the dress feel special. I was very comfortable all night. I wore gold wedges, a gold cuff bracelet, and earrings. I felt a necklace was too much... the cleavage was enough going on there! I got a million compliments and will rent this again!
