Stunning rich blue, delicate sequins, very versatile fit. Looks great on, rely on review photos.
This gown served double duty at a charity gala and maternity portraits we scheduled just after. I'm 7 months pregnant, guessing I went from 125 to about 140lbs, here. Ordered a 2L and 4R, the 2L was perfect. I didn't wear super high heels, but the long length was needed, perhaps because the bump lifted front of dress a bit. Although, at 5'6" I think I would have still preferred the long. It's lightweight, very, very thin material (not see through, don't worry), and moves nicely when you walk.
-Back of top is stretchy. Really stretchy elastic gathering. Doesn't take away from the look at all, but would allow for the top to hold nicely whether you're small or larger chested. (I'm a not-quite-full-B, here.)
-Sequins have such a delicate and interesting pattern. It's clear this gown is older and well worn, maybes it's missing a few sequins, I don't know for certain but no one would ever be able to tell. They're sweetly scattered about.
-Color is a really rich & vibrant indigo/navy blue. The hue hasn't lost any life. I'd imagine this would work well on many different skin tones.
-Raw edge along the sweetheart neckline is a nice touch.
-This worked well for me, pregnant, but it would definitely look lovely on someone with a flat tummy. And would be forgiving/figure flattering.
-I should have used a bit of tape, had to pull up every so often. With the stretchy back, it gives a bit, especially over time.
- I wore this in late November, and was a bit cold, know you'll be chilly in cool months. All the layers are super thin.
Really don't have any other cons, I've rent somewhere in the nature of 25 dress or so from RTR. Felt like this was one of the best values and easiest to pair accessories. No complaints!
