Beautiful dress, but not for big-busted gals.
This dress is beautiful, and airy with sweet details (like the buttons at the nape & the crisscross sleeves). The material is a nice crepe and well-lined. This is one dress that has a true-to-color picture on RTR; the colors are bright and cheery. I appreciated the hook-and-eye closure at the bust which allows the wearer to adjust how much cleavage to show. However, this is a tight fit across the back. If you happen to have a wider back or are a bit muscular, this dress won't zip up! Also, this is not a dress meant for ladies w/ larger arms as the arm holes are a bit small. This is a beautiful dress for a thinner woman with a smaller bust than I (B-C, perhaps). Sadly, I wasn't able to wear this dress since I couldn't get it over my man shoulders. ;) Thanks, RTR for being so helpful and over-nighting a dress and new necklace to save my butt!
