Not as straight a silhouette as expected, regular was long.
This dress is certainly pretty, but the cut and fit just did not work for me. I selected the dress because it looked like a "straight and narrow" shape, which usually works well for my body type (I store all my weight in the tummy and chest, with narrow hips and zero booty). When this dress arrived, however, it was very generous through the butt and thighs and very tight in the tummy (though the 4R accommodated my large chest fine.) I also found the dress to be rather long compared to other size 4R maxis and gowns I've rented from RTR. This could look great on someone who is put together differently (someone with a waist!) but sadly I didn't get to wear it. Also, the material wrinkles very easily. So, minus one star for the fit and one for the material. Great color and tasteful but unique design, though!
