Looks great. Quite heavy. A bit wrinkly.
I typically wear a size 6. I ordered a size 6R and a size 8R as backup. When I put the 6 on, I could barely get this thing over my hips. It eventually zipped, but I was walking around like a penguin. I tried the 8 on, and it fit just fine through the hips, but was very loose around my shoulders. This caused it sag down where the train was gathered at the small of my back. This made the dress feel very heavy. I thought it looked great on me though! I wore it for about an hour, had some pictures taken, but couldn't take extra weight for very long, and I eventually changed into a shorter dress. If you have fuller hips, size UP, but be mindful of the fact that it may not fit you up top quite as well since this is an open back. (invest in some fashion tape). ONE MORE important thing: This dress was VERY WRINKLED when I received it. I spent about an hour and a half steaming the dress in order to make it look presentable. I really wanted to like the dress...but if I had enough foresight, I would have different route. Luckily, I had a plan b in place!
