I wore this to a black tie encouraged wedding in San Francisco.
I really wanted to rent this in a 2R, but they did not have that size available for this particular weekend. The 4R was definitely too big, but I was able to pin it to my bra to keep it from sliding around. I'm only 5'5, but I thought the dress made me look taller than normal. I liked the neckline, although the liner fabric dip creep out a bit from the dress (as you can see in the pictures). The dress is definitely more understated silver than in the picture -- it is a more muted gray color, but the sequins add a nice hint of sparkle that isn't too overwhelming. The gathering on the dress was flattering. Also, I wore 4-inch heels, and the 'R' length was just long enough, I'd suggest going with the 'L' length if you are taller than 5'5 or plan to wear higher heels than 4". I'd also recommend going with your traditional size, or even sizing down a size, as the dress runs a little large (particularly if you have a shorter torso, and longer legs).
