Exquisite Fabric, Comfortable but Sexy
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I felt absolutely fabulous wearing this dress. I wasn't even really overly impressed seeing it on the hanger, but when I put it on it looks so wonderful. The cut and the richness of the fabric make it obvious it is an expensive dress. Lots of people, including the bride, complimented me on how I looked in it. It was great to wear to an outdoor wedding with lots of dancing because it was extremely comfortable, and I didn't have to fidget with it or keep adjusting it like some dresses. The only thing about the dress itself that was bothersome was the little ribbons on the inside that are used for hanging it up, which kept slipping out during dancing. I usually wear more a 6 or even an 8 in dresses, but since people said it ran large I ordered the 4 and 6. The 6 fit fine, but when I tried the 4 on I realized it fit more exactly and ended up wearing that and that the 6 was a bit roomy. With that said, I feel like the fit on this dress is a little more flexible since it is not especially tight, although if someone were flat-chested you might swim in it a bit. I loved that the dress had pockets. I wore it with flats so that I could move around easily outdoors, but I was going to wear it with gold flats which looked very pretty. I was a litle worried from some descriptions that it was going to look too long and conservative, but the length was perect - it feel right above my knees. It has several layers of fabric and tulle underneath to keep it nice and poofy, but not overly so. I loved the semi-low back - it kept it a bit sexy but not in an overly much or uncomfortable way. I wore it without a bra for this reason - I think it would be really difficult to wear one except for a stick-on. I felt very comfortable without though, the fabric is pretty thick. I would definately recommend this dress - the color and fabric stand out and it feels very pretty on!
