this dress is stunning! but probably not the best choice for pear shapes.
i needed a dress for Oaks kind of last minute, and because you are 'encouraged' to wear pink, my choices were limited. i saw this dress and thought it looked super cute on most of the girls, though i was worried about the negatives of course, especially since i'd be kind of screwed and without a dress if it didn't work out.
i am normally a 4 or 6 depending on how a dress fits, i assumed i'd be a 6 in this because of the cut, but the 6 was crazy tight. the 8 was WAY too loose though, in the chest and stomach area.. it was not cute. it was just.. loose and awkward and weird. i also don't have the chest to fill it out. so i had to go with the 6, and some trusty spanx.. and no bending down. the top of the 6 fit perfectly, and the bottom half really wasn't that bad, just tight. i had to keep pulling it down because it moved up when i walked. that's my hips though, not the dress. i definitely do think it would work better on someone with less hips and more boobs, but overall i am super happy with the rental. i wouldn't rent it again, but i'm not mad i did.
