new years eve dress- medium wasn't available and it ended up looking frumpy and unwearable
let me start by saying i returned this dress for RTR credit and found my size unwearable/unflattering-- but will try for another similarly dressy occasion with the right size because the dress itself is cute.
i got this dress in a large because the medium wasn't available, i had a coupon, and thought it was worth a shot. the back of the dress is really interesting, flattering, and cool. unfortunately the front of the dress and the bust were matronly looking. i have no problem not wearing a bra, but because the dress was loose on top it didn't do me any favors/give any cleavage to compensate for the frumpiness. i have an hourglass figure with a big butt, so the butt fit and the boobs fit (just not very sexy in front the way i'd want for a NYE dress), but the way the stomach was baggy was just really unfortunate. trying to pull the dress down only made it frumpier and less flattering. it's not short enough for a youthful party look, and the material is thicker so it's harder to work with.
cute dress in theory and will have to see how i feel with the right size.
