Fun, but not for us big hip ladies.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Rented this dress for our office holiday party. I was looking for something that wasn't too over the top, but still had a little bit of pizazz to it. I loved the little sparkly peekaboo at the bottom of the dress.
The fit of this dress was a little weird for me. I'm small chested, so I had to go down a size to keep my boobs from flopping around. I normally wear a size 6 dress, but the chest area of the size 6 was so baggy and unflattering. I sized down to the 4, but then the sequined slip was very tight on my thighs and kept riding up all night so you couldn't even see it. Wish it was more of a stretchy material. I really like the A-line of the dress and think that's most flattering for pear shapes like me, but it sort of defeats the purpose when you have a slip that's cut straight with no stretch. Had to wear the dress with tights to suck my butt in and stop people from getting a peek in case the slip rode up too far...
Still got tons of compliments though. Just not my favorite dress so far.
(also I think when I rented this dress it cost more..they seem to have knocked down the price a bit...)
