Would need to tailor it to make it work- but still felt HOT! Good for an "un-active" night out.
Overall, I felt BEAUTIFUL and happy! HOWEVER- If this was for more than just a cocktail night at a swanky bar with my boyfriend, I would have struggled for three reasons: bra, armpits, hips.
BRA: I have a small-ish chest, and with the right bra (a red one) I was "poppin"! Worked for the occasion, but I would have felt uncomfortable in any sort of professional situation. If I did not have the EXACT color red bra, I would have had to go without- the dress is so low that it definitely shows the bra.
ARMPITS: As other reviewers have said, the dress has small arm holes, so it rides up into your armpit. I was just sitting all night, so it wasn't a huge deal, but ANY sweat or moving (chaffing) would have been really irritating.
HIPS: I have big hips/thighs and a small waist. The size 10 was really tight on my thighs, causing it to ride up when I walk/sit. At the same time, I could have taken in over 2 inches at the waist/bodice. Not a problem for dinner with my man... but would have been so irritating to pull down all night if I had been dancing or standing.
All in all- this is what RTR is all about! I felt beautiful, it fit my needs- even though it is a dress that I would definitely not buy due to the odd/uncomfortable fit points.
