Lots of sex appeal, figure flattering! Pics coming soon.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this to a cocktail evening event, and made it work. This dress is definitely sexy, but there are a few issues: first, I ordered the small (4) & the medium (6-8) as a backup. I'm 5'8" and usually wear a 4 in a non-stretch, structured dress. The small fit just fine, except that it was MUCH shorter than it appears here on the model. Hit at my mid thigh when I was pulling it down. Probably would've been shorter as I moved. I opted to size up just for the extra length, which worked okay, but it wasn't fitted as much as I would've liked. The other problem is that the material of the dress is cheaper in person than it appears on the model. It's kind of shiny, too, from the stretch. I had to dress it up quite a bit with accessories, and still felt a little underdressed. It's very similar to a bandage dress, both in material and fit, if that gives you an idea. The cutouts are great, however, and received many compliments. My last note would be on the bra situation-not bad, actually-though in spite of what other reviewers have said, you can't wear a 'regular' bra with this. It's too low in the back, and it would eventually show as you moved. Get a low-back strap to convert any regular bra you already have, Victoria's Secret gives them away free now. Easy. I opted for a side-stick push-up, though, so I didn't have to worry about straps. $50 at Vicki's. Anyway. All in all, decent dress, but more suitable for a dinner in the city, a club, evening date event, maybe a non-black-tie wedding. It is a thicker fabric, which actually was slimming and you don't really need spanx, but you could if you wanted to. Very sexy. I'd buy it for a staple LBD. I'm giving it a 3 stars, because while I made it work for the occasion, it wasn't what it appears to be on the site here. Hope this helped!
