Actually getting to wear a great red-carpet dress at a department store price.
I ordered this dress for my spring formal and it is absolutely gorgeous...I loved wearing it. The fit was a little funny though: I'm relatively hourglass shaped (to a degree) and not only was the dress really hard to get over my butt and thighs, I could only take baby steps in it (it's also hard to sit down since it's so tight around the legs). The waist was fine and the bust area was a bit large (I'm also pretty busty), so tape is definitely a must. Besides from the uneven fit, the dress is still extremely flattering and I got multiple compliments on it. I don't necessarily have large thighs, but this dress definitely works better if you have pretty skinny legs and a small butt. As for the bust area, tape is going to be needed whether you are small or large, but either way it's still flattering.
My one issue with the dress is that since it is so tight around the legs, it came with a small tear in one of the seams (which I'm sure happened when the previous wearer sat down in it).
