I rented this dress to wear to an evening soiree featuring champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, petit fors and dancing. The guest's attire ran the gamut from extremely formal full length gowns to day dresses as the event was part of a 3-day workshop.
My dress caught everyone's attention as soon as I walked in the room. The gold lace on the upper part of the dress is much richer in person than the website shows. The bottom of the dress is black lace, but it has a little gunmetal sheen that draws the eye. The fit of the size 6 was much better than the 8. It was just a hair snug in the hips, but didn't look funny,nor did I have trouble moving or sitting. The backup size 8 was ill-fitting in the bust and the lining at the neckline flipped over so you could see it. Not a good look at all.
Overall it was a great dress, The ribbon below the bust is a little snug, with no give, so if you've got a wide ribcage, you might not do well with the dress or may need a larger size.
