Not Ideal if Smaller in the Bust Area
I wanted to love this dress - the print is so fun, playful and colorful. After a long and depressing winter, this is just the dress I needed to have a pop of color at a party. Unfortunately, this dress is not meant for those of us smaller in the bust area. Even with a 0, my entire bra was exposed - the free samples of Hollywood Fashion Tape that came with my rental certainly helped, but my bra was still peeking through the corners of the square neckline. Also, the shirring at the waist creates the illusion of a bloated belly/ beer belly, as many other reviewers have mentioned. As a competitive athlete, this dress did nothing to accentuate the areas of my body that I like (smaller waist, sculpted shoulders) and drew all of the attention to areas I'd rather forget (smaller bust). The end result was a sloppy look, especially since I kept adjusting the top of the dress to ensure my bra wasn't completely exposed.
