Nice cut and fabric, wear a size up and cinch in the waist, use fashion tape!!
There is a lot I like about this dress. The fabric is soft, wrinkle resistant and flowing and the color and pattern are very flattering. I loved the braided straps! The cut is nice if you want to hide a belly or a bump but it is not super flattering from the side view. While the dress is true to size, I recommend getting a larger size than you would usually wear because you and cinch in the waist in the front. The more you cinch it in, the better it fits on the breasts. Like other reviewers I thought it bunched up oddly when you wear the right size for your waist. Overall, the larger size had more flow and movement while dancing. The con?, that ridiculous clasp that looks like a last minute addition without any thought about how it would look ON! And yes, you do need to use a clasp or fashion tape while dancing. I made that mistake and flashed half of the dance floor! whoops. The rest of the night I closed the clasp (you can see how silly it looks in the group photo) but I didn't have to worry anymore. Overall I had a great night and would probably rent this one again now that I know how to wear it!
