Really beautiful dress!
I rented this dress for a formal cocktail engagement party. After reading the reviews, I decided to get a size bigger for the backup size. The 2 fit absolutely perfectly, and was extremely flattering, but it had very little extra space for sitting or dancing. I definitely don't wear short dresses often, so was a little self conscious of the length. I hoped the size 4 would provide some extra length, and it did, but it unfortunately also had a little too much extra space, with odd gathering in the tummy and hip area. I thought maybe it was because it was a little stretched out, but that might just be the nature of this dress - if it fits it's like magic, if it doesn't it's really not flattering at all. I would definitely recommend it, though, and imagine it flattering lots of body types. I got tons of compliments, and it made me feel awesome. It's also beautifully made and comfortable. It's a dress I would definitely consider buying some day, because it's appropriate for so many settings and occasions and you can wear so many different shoes and accessories for different looks. It would be a great investment!
