Absolutely gorgeous (if a little on the small side)
I wore this dress to my senior prom. It was beautiful and I received a TON of compliments on it, but it was very VERY snug and I ended up getting a headache/changing out of the dress halfway through the night (I wish I had worn the 8L instead!). I had thought that it would be fine if I just didn't wear a bra with it, but when you're running around a ballroom and dancing the night away you actually do need to be able to breathe, I found out. So if you're going to wear this, get a size (or two!) up from what you'd normally wear and if anything just wear a strapless bra with it. Also, some of the spokes in the bodice of the dress were poking through and bothering me, so beware of those and bring some tape or something to cover them up. It was also furiously hard to zip up, but that may have been a side effect of wearing a size too small. Still, the dress was gorgeous and if I could I would rent it again. A size up.
