Great dress for a winter event
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
Polar vortex in Chicago, folks! Needed a long-sleeved, stupid-cold-winter-friendly dress for a nice date (boyfriend's 30th birthday -- he requested a steak dinner, tickets the symphony, and fancy clothes). This dress is GORGEOUS and incredibly easy to wear.
I expected wear the size S based on measurements, but wound up in the XS. Both fit, but the drape was a little overwhelming in the larger size. The open back makes the sizing pretty flexible, but it's important for the arms to fit snugly to keep it from slipping off your shoulders. In short, consider sizing down. It's stretchy!
I wore this with a Nubra and it worked well.
I was comfortable all night and felt classy... and the open back is pretty sexy (withing being too much, because the front and arms are so covered).
Wore with big earrings, black tights, and black pumps. Easy.
