Perfect for a very low-key event.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is interesting. It was super sparkly and super white. Perfect for a bachelorette party! However, it had a lot of stuff wrong with it, making me wish I chose a different dress for my party.
The dress was really large in the bust and really tight everywhere else. There was no room a little pooch, and very unforgiving. The top is really low, so 2 of my strapless bras stuck out the top...and with it being so large, I had to have some extra padding in there to hold it up all night, and keep "the girls" in.
The lining of the dress is black, which was okay since I had to wear a black bra, but the lining kept sticking out the bottom all night. I wouldn't have minded so much if it was white and less noticeable, but EVERYONE could see it, even if it was sticking out just a smidgen. I had to keep adjusting all night long.
And boy were my arms RAW the next week. The sequins are gorgeous, but so unbelievably uncomfortable. I expected a little abrasion, but the next morning, I could see actual gashes in my arms, and the soap and water in the shower made them BURN. Seriously, for days after. My DNA is on the 12 of this dress.
Seriously, a gorgeous dress, and a good pick if you are attending an event where you plan on not moving a whole lot. Otherwise, be prepared to have to adjust the dress constantly, have raw under-arms for a few days, and get lots of compliments!
