Great dress, but small on the bottom.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The color and material of this dress were great and I wish I could have worn in. It was thick enough to hold a shape, but not so much that it would be too warm in the summer. There is absolutely NO stretch in this dress. In dresses I generally wear an 8, but I have larger hips(pear shaped). The 10 was unavailable for a back-up during my rental time, but I wanted to try anyways.
I could zip up the dress but that was it, no sitting down. As in the picture, the dress does flare out just a little, so it wasn't tight on my thighs or legs, literally JUST around the hip/butt. The top, while flattering, was actually a bit loose on me, so having the back-up 10 would not have helped. I would say the dress runs fairly true to size, but small around the hips. This would look great on someone who is narrow through the hips or an hourglass shape with a larger bust. I would not recommend this for pear shapes, or people with a narrow waist and large hips or butt.
