Love it! Don't be afraid to size down!
This was a "just because" rental for a night out with a friend. It was comfy and seasonally appropriate (for December in LA). I was concerned about the fit, because according to RTR the 42 is a 4, and I only sometimes fit into size 4. But I looked up the measurements on missoni's website and realized I should fit the 42 just fine AND reading the description of the dress as roomy, I decided to try the 40 as well just in case. I fit both of them, and the 40 actually fit better than the 42, but the part that buttons was too tight for comfort around my rib cage. So I wore the 42 and had TONS of room in the hips and waist. I felt secure without a bra, and never felt like any wardrobe malfunctions were lurking.
Anyway, I loved this dress. And I got lots of compliments! Another success!
