This dress is a great combination of pretty & classy. Received compliments & felt good wearing.
I am pear-shaped, so I tried the size 6 which felt great but I had tons of fabric on top that I couldn't fill out (and normally not a problem being a c cup). So I went w/ the size 4 which fit perfectly on top but snug on bottom. I bought spanx (previous reviews mention it being snug in the tummy and it is). Spanx helped. Other thing to note, at least for me wearing a 4, dress must go over the head, couldn't step into it...so getting my hair done, had to have the dress on first. As for jewelry, the neck is high...saw some review pics w/ shorter necklaces...I opted to go w/o and just have a showier earring/bracelet/bag set. Went w/ a strappy black sandal for shoes. Originally didn't want to go w/ a black dress for this wedding...just wanted something w/ color, especially w/ it being summer, but after seeing the cut and the structure of the dress, went w/ it because I didn't think it could go wrong and was glad I did. Right decision. Lots of compliments, felt dressy but not overdressed, danced all night and was comfy...loved the dress and was really happy with this choice.
