The color is a blue-based gray
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Color-- I guess I need to adjust the color on my monitor, because I thought the dress was an olive/gray color, especially considering the black hose/shoes that the model is wearing. The dress is actually a very blue-based gray. All of the sequins are silver, and overall the dress had a much more sweet/princess-y look than I was anticipating, on me it just wasn't quite as edgy as it appears on the model.
Fit-- Still, the dress is very pretty and flattering - the cut is great if you are concerned about tummy/hips/thighs. I have 28" waist, 38" hips, and tried both sizes 6 and 8. While the size 6 fit, the size 8 was just more flattering, this dress looks best when it's not super tight. I'd advise you to order your regular size and one size up. Another advantage of the larger size is that the sleeves were longer, the sleeves on the size 6 didn't make it down to my elbows. Regarding the low v-neck front, I tried a couple of "regular" bras but they all showed a bit, I ended up wearing a "u-plunge" bra. I used double sided tape to adhere the shoulders to my bra straps.
Overall-- I give it 4 stars because it is a very pretty dress and it fit me well. I was disappointed in the color IRL, I was expecting something darker.
