Stand Out Color for Rehearsal Dinner
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner for a friend. I wore the 6, as it fit better in the middle than the 8. It is definitely more a sheath style dress, so you don't get as much definition in the mid-section. But that made it comfortable, as I don't love having things be tight on my belly. The one issue was that it was much shorter than I expected. The 8 was a little longer, but too large in the middle, so I went with the 6, but kept feeling like I had to pull it down when we were rehearsing in church. That may be because I have bigger hips and bottom, which can cause dresses to ride up. For a party with friends, or a night out I think it would be fine, but it felt a little short for a family affair in church. The color is brighter than it appears in pictures, but pretty, and I got lots of compliments.
