A bit large and not super well made.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I'm normally an 8 and the 8 was a bit too big for me (even with a strapless bra that took up a little extra space up top). It was only for a friend's bridal shower, so I didn't bother trying to exchange it, I just sent it back and got credit. I had consulted with a stylist who recommended I size up for some reason, but I would def. size down for your back-up size unless you're really, really big chested in relation to the rest of your body, esp. because the skirt is flared, so there's plenty of leeway from the waist down. I think the 6 would've fit well (plus, with a strapless dress you want it a little tighter so it doesn't fall down). The print is adorable and the colors are true to the photo, but the other annoying this was, and I don't know if this is because it was loose, but the white lining of the dress kept popping up unless you adjusted very carefully. It's hard to describe, but for those of you who have worn inexpensive strapless dresses with boning, you'll probably understand what I mean. Like the boning would poke up over the edge of the top of the dress so you'd see the white lining, kind of annoying. Plus, you can tell it's not super well-made because the strap that hooks around your chest is made of this dinky, cheap looking plastic, not metal like other ones.
