Beautiful, but not made for the busty.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress when the size 4 of the dress I ordered was damaged. The problem with the more expensive dresses is that I guess no one orders them so you don't have any reviews to rely on. Anyway, this dress is exquisitely made. The beading is beautiful, the fabric is a thick, glamorous gold brocade, and the boning is very flattering.
But. I don't think this dress was made for curvy girls. Although I'm large-chested, I usually wear a 4, and I could just barely manage to squeeze myself into this dress. It was so tight in the bust it gave me a uni-boob. It was tough to keep my bra from showing at the armholes, probably because the bust was too tight. Also, it was tough to pull my spanks back up after going to the bathroom because I had to get past the stiff boning at the waist and was afraid it was going to tear through the dress.
So I gave it four stars to account for it running so small. Otherwise, it was really lovely and I got a number of compliments on it.
