Bright and Cheery Dress For The Wintertime Blues!
I'm a huge fan of Nanette Lepore and rented this dress for a surprise party with a "summertime" theme. The colors are very vibrant, and definitely different from anything else that I've ever worn.
It was a little snug in the chest. I'd imagine if your bust was on the larger side, this could be a difficult fit. Even though the top of the dress seemed to dip down a bit (it showed off some cleavage and I don't have a very big chest), everything felt very secure as the extra rubber strap inside of the dress made it fit pretty snug.
Although the colors and design were very summery, the material was actually fairly heavy. I was comfortable wearing it on a chilly day in March with a heavy cardigan over it (I even took the cardigan off once I was in the warm house).
It was a unique dress, and certainly pretty as I think most Nanette Lepore dresses are, but it just wasn't flattering enough on me that I would rent it again.
