Not For Curves!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress on the model, but I completely disregarded the fact that I am not a size 00, have hips and a chest, and am never able to wear dresses described as "shifts," AKA straight-cut! I thought the pleats would help add some roominess in the lower half, but nope! I also think that I have a longer torso with a high natural waist, so inevitably, the wider, hip portions of dresses hit me a little too high, causing fabric bubbling right around the tummy area (yuck!). The only reason I took these HIDEOUS photos was to help other people my size through this review, so I hope they are appreciated! In the photo, I am wearing an 8 (didn't even attempt the size 6). And I also took my body measurements for others' reference:
Largest part of chest (no bra)- 37"
Ribcage under- 30"
Smallest part of waist (natural)- 28"
Largest part of hips- 42"
From natural waist to floor- 44"
I was looking for something with sleeves, thinking that it would look a little more winter-appropriate, and would have liked to wear this color, the lace trend, and the comfortable stretchy fabric, but this style just didn't work out on this curvy body!
