Beautiful wedding with a gorgeous dress!
Dress was GORGEOUS. For sure a show stopper, head turning dress! The color is fabulous, and overall fit and style is actually very flattering! i was between this and a Herve Leger dress, since those are my go-to for events, but very happy with this choice.
I ordered the 2 and the 4 for backup but the 2 was already very loose in upper area. Like other reviewers, no way a bra is possible, unless its backless. I opted to wear the backless bra, which initially I was worried about slipping down, but was held nicely in place by the dress. I also had purchased a corset style slimmer to go underneath to make sure I did felt comfortable, however, that actually made the dress fit worse, and created more "issues" than solutions. The dress is very flattering with just normal fabric. The ONLY issue I had with the dress was that with moving around, it ended up riding up and creating sort of a bunching look around the middle. It was fine once pulled down, however with dancing and normal walking around the reception, it was a continuous problem. Just have to remember to pull down BEFORE pictures, or makes for an unflattering photo :) I tried on the size 4, however, that was even looser around the top area, so no way that was possible.
Overall would HIGHLY recommend the dress...received a TON of compliments on it throughout the night. I did not use the earrings that were sent with, I ended up opting to pair with a statement necklace and nude heels.
