Worked for the occasion, but wasn't a stunner.
Size worn: 14/16
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The gathers are in the right places to hide your stomach, which is always a plus, and I loved the wide lace sleeves.
The shoulders/yoke of the dress were a bit wide and it made it look just a tad matronly. On the flip side of that, if you don't like to have "the girls" on display you will have to be better at tape and pinning than I was. I don't usually mind, but it was a work party and I even got some comments. (Nice, but you never want the one that becomes an HR violation... Ha!)
Overall, a pretty black dress. Just not as stunning as other options.
