Flattering Dress for Hourglass Figures!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have a true hour glass figure (34 D bust, size 4 waist, and size 10 to 12 hips), and this dress was just so comfortable and flattering! If you are hourglass or pear shape, I would highly recommend this dress, as it emphasizes the chest, flatters the waist, and flows away from the hips. As far as sizing/how the dress fits ~ for most dresses I am usually an 8, but for a-line style dresses (that flow away from the hips/butt), such as this one, I am usually a size 6. However, because the chest area is tight for this dress, if you have a larger chest, I would recommend going with a larger size as your back-up size (I ended up wearing an 8). Speaking of chest... if you have a larger chest, be ready to show some cleavage, as this dress emphasizes/enhances this area. I did not find the amount of cleavage shown to be obscene by any means (and my fiancé sure loved it haha), but I just mention this to give a fair warning to any ladies who are uncomfortable with that. This dress comes in other colors (teal, pink and white I believe) but for a formal, winter wedding, I think that the navy is just so classy and chic. Another "plus" to this dress is that it has POCKETS!! Last comment, this material is not super light nor is it super heavy, so it would work well for most climates/seasons. Enjoy ladies!!
