As beautiful as this dress is, I would not recommend it if you are pear shaped.
I was so excited for this dress but my excitement immediately turned to disappointment once I tried it on. I should have listened to my fellow RTRers when they said this dress is NOT meant for a pear shape! The dress is SUPER fitted through the hips but fortunately, it is not too noticeable because the dress is lined and also the outside material is very thick and structured. It was, however, kind of difficult for me to actively move around in. The dress is not at all fitted in the waist or bust area, which gave the appearance that I was wearing a white rosette sack! If you are looking for a form fitting dress, this is not it. I really wouldn't recommend this dress if you are short or have short legs. The material is gorgeous but it consumes you! You want to wear the dress, but this dress definitely has the ability to wear you- not a positive thing! Between the tight fit through the hips, no fit through the waist and the rosette detailing making me look larger than I am, I just couldn't take myself seriously in this dress. It was not for me. I would definitely recommend this dress if you are: tall, athletic, thin, busty, hourglass.
