Disappointing. Gorgeous dress, but tight hips and floppy waist. Not for the curvy ladies.
Not for the curvy girl. I found there was plenty of room in the bust, but the waist could have easily been taken in 2 inches and the fullest part of the hips only fit thanks to very tight spanx. Others mentioned that the hips were tight and to possibly order up a size, but no note of the waist being so loose.
This is something that's hidden in every photo of this dress on this website. Either person wearing the dress is turned looking over their shoulder, or they have their hands placed to hide the floppy waist or to pull it taunt (or the photo's so dark the blacks all blend together). Even the model is hiding the loose waist with her arms/ defining it with hand placement. It's fine that it fits that way, I was able to eat dinner without worrying about looking bloated, and of course this cut will fit many women with a less defined waist perfectly- I just wish I'd known before hand because I would have chosen a different dress.
Disappointing. If I'd tried this dress on in store I'd have said "Too bad." and put it back on the rack, but since it was rented and changing last minute is dodgy I stuck with it.
