super flattering dress! (but had some issues)
Overall, I loved the dress. I wore it to my formal and got compliments all night. Generally, it was a super flattering cut. If you're worried about finding a dress that will make you look great and hug you in all the right places, this is it!
However, there were a few "but's"
1) The material is pretty itchy. Not unbearable, but still it's definitely a thing. In pictures, it looks kind of silky but in fact it's a thicker and heavier fabric.
2) The dress definitely ran big for me. I'm pretty consistently a size 6 no matter what, and I really found myself wishing I had ordered the size 4 as back up.
3) The fabric around the bust was kind of stretched out, as though someone had tried to squeeze into it, and in doing so had popped out the front a bit, bending the fabric. I'm not sure why this was, but it meant that from the side you could see some space between the fabric and my chest, even though I was filling out the rest of the chest area. It was just sort of odd. Maybe could have been solved with a size 4, who knows
All in all, I recommend the dress because it's flattering and is a good price! But I'd order a size down for sure :)
