This dress was perfect for the fall, evening wedding I attended.
As others mentioned, it does run a little loose in the top, but while the dress is low cut I never felt like I was falling out - the neckline fit close to my chest. I had to do a reading at the church and I felt that I was appropriately dressed. The sleeves were long enough to cover any trouble spots without looking matronly. The color was phenomenal - Perfect for ladies who look good in jewel tones. I was nervous about renting a lace overlayed dress, fearing that the lace would be pulled, but there were no imperfections and the material was sturdy. The thick fabric added a bit of warmth, and also helped to smooth over any lumps and bumps. I did wear some light shapewear underneath, but it was not completely necessary.
For some reason I'm not able to select my true bust size, but I am a 42DD. The bra I wore had a slight push-up, and as I mentioned the top fit well.
