Stunning skirt, but couldn't wear a bra
I ended up wearing a different style. I was bummed because I LOVED the skirt on this dress. I felt like I was going to a ball. But the back of the top comes up too high to wear a regular or strapless bra. I tried significantly tightening the straps on my bra to raise the band in the back, however, not only is that horribly uncomfortable and unsupportive, the band of the bra still kept poking out the bottom. Not classy.
I experimented with no bra (bad idea for 32D me, but I tried), but the front is low and loose enough that it actually exposed me when leaning forward only slightly (which means even with a bra, I'd be showing it off all night). I would have needed tape, but since I've never used it, I didn't want my first time at a black tie event to be the night I experimented.
I'm a pear, so this dress probably works better for people with larger torsos. Or if you are also a pear, and don't need a bra, try ordering the size according to your upper half, as the bottom half doesn't hug at all. Just watch the waist because it will get snug.
