Losing count of how many people gave me compliments :-)
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
When I first got the dress, I was worried about how bright, bright, bright that orange is! BUT- this dress is much nicer on. Still bright, but the pastel lace and sweet silhouette reins in that big punch of color. I wore it to a wedding, and the compliments I got- so many, I lost count: from men and women, friends and total strangers.
I agree that the attached slip construction is great- no shifting or adjusting, you just step into it or drop it over your head like any other zippered dress. I'm small-busted, so the front of the liner would droop just enough to show the top of my strapless bra: this was easily fixed with fashion tape. I would also like to note that the skirt is a bit more A-line than it appears on the model, though the liner is not.
I gave it a 4 rather than a 5 simply because I prefer a more body-conscious dress. I'd say this dress is eye-catching, but not sexy.
