Great color, but runs a little large
Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I would highly recommend this dress (and color) for anyone with olive skin. I was getting compliments all night on how well the color complimented my natural skin tone, which is always a plus.
My biggest complaint is that while the dress fit exceptionally well around my knees, everything above it was a little too big. I generally wear a two but decided to go with a four this time because Christmas saw me packing on a few extra pounds that decided to hang out well into January, and I didn't want to have a pudgy tummy at winter formal. In retrospect, I wish I'd gotten the two. I had to tape the straps (which looked positively ridiculous) so that they didn't slip off my shoulders, and the neckline kept popping out around my chest. In photos, I look like an honest-to-God moomoo. The dress isn't slimming whatsoever, and I would say even added weight in photos.
It was comfortable for dancing though, which is also a plus. I would say that this dress is a perfect second choice, but if it's a toss up between this and something else, I would say go with the something else.
