This dress is very comfortable and easy to wear. The color is really stunning and easy to wear by all skin tones. The pint on the dress is interesting an understated, which, I think, makes it a unique option for your upcoming event.
The overall fit of the dress is true to size. I typically wear a size 10, and I wore a size 8R here - I could have gone up a size. I am also 5'6", and I had one 3.5" heels - I could have used a long length dress. The feel of the dress is wonderful and very easy. This is a great option for an evening to cocktail affair. I think that due to the color and pattern on the dress, it could work well in either environment.
The closure of this dress is a back zipper, so if you choose to wear this you will need someone around to zip you into this. The overall shape of the dress is a sheath, so I feel it is good for all shapes outside of pear shapes and those with broad shoulder. In fact, if you have broad shoulder or wider hips and are considering this look, you will certainly need to go up a size for your backup size. For all other shapes, I would consider going down a size for your backup.
All in all - this is a fabulous dress. It's easy to wear with minimal fuss, is standard bra friendly, and is great for a multitude of shapes.
