The bridal shower that wasn't meant to be...
I didn't get to actually wear this dress to my event because I had 3 canceled flights in a row and couldn't get to my sister's bridal shower in time to attend. Sorry for the lousy bathroom selfie.
The fabric on this dress is much brighter and prettier in person. I gasped when I opened the package because the material is so lovely. However, after trying it on, I realized it is kind of a silky material that wrinkles when you sit, especially in warm weather.
The dress has a generous cut in the skirt, but not much give or stretch in the fabric. I'm a hippy girl, but the skirt gave me some room. I am a D cup so the top of the dress fit fine with a bra. If you have a smaller chest, get out your best padded push up bra or pick another dress - it will not fit properly up top. With the way the dress is cut, kind of tank style, there is not much you can do to adjust there. Also the square neckline meant only one of my bras would work without showing.
Overall I didn't feel like a knockout in the dress or that it was super flattering. It would have been fine for my event but I didn't feel like it accentuated my figure very well. It kind of just hangs there. I was also not a fan of where it hit me on my legs, I wish it was an inch or so shorter, which would have made them look longer.
It's a pretty dress and the fabric is stunning. I wouldn't rent it again, though.
