Stunning wedding rehearsal
I ordered the size 8 and 10 in this dress, not knowing which might look more flattering, although I tend to wear a size 10 more often. For this dress, I tried the 8 on at first. I had read certain reviews indicating that the clasps at the bust were either problematic or missing, so I was excited to find that I had two functional clasps. However, I did not realize that in addition to the wrap ties, there were two snap buttons near each of the ties. I have a long torso, so these did not hit me at my waist, but rather pretty far up on my torso. While I could button them, I was uncomfortable, so I tried the 10. Unfortunately, while the snap buttons of the 10 worked, there were NO clasps at the bust, which made me uneasy. Ultimately, I went with the 8, forgoing the snap buttons, and praying that the ties alone would suffice. I don't think it looks terrible in the picture, but I was definitely nervous wearing this dress.
