Not for small busts!
I rented this dress for my 29th bday celebration, since I wanted something glittery and really "over the top." This dress certainly fit the bill! It is GORGEOUS in person - the sequins are not really silver, more a mermaid-like rainbow type color (so it looks a bit more blue-ish than silver). From the waist down it fit well - not too long, which is always a concern for me at 5'1" - and appropriately hugged curves. From the waist up, though, it was HUGE in the bust, which is why I only gave it 3 stars, and couldn't actually wear it out for my birthday. I am a 32A, so small around and small-chested, and even with a padded strapless bra and a lot of double-sided tape, there was just no way on earth this dress was going to stay up on me. I would have had a major wardrobe malfunction just by lifting my arms :( Sad that I couldn't wear it, but it would look so beautiful on someone with a bigger chest/wider ribcage.
