Love the detail and the stretch!
Originally I bought the Omari dress, which was beautiful, but not the best for my body type. I'm much curvier in my hips, so the idea of a form fitting dress was a little scary. However, I thought it would be best to accentuate my curves, as when I tried the Omari to hide them, I just ended up looking frumpy. As BHLDN states, the dress does run a little large. I ordered a size 4. I wear a 4 in my tops, but an 8 in the hips. I was panicking the lace dress wouldn't fit over my hips, but it did. The material is stretchy and soft, which is awesome. I didn't feel stifled. I could actually move and sit down without worrying about busting a seam. The lace detailing at the neck, arms, and bottom is gorgeous. Also love the crossing below the bust- creates great shape and is flattering. Wore this dress with the Elopement pumps. Wonderful, classy dress. Thinking of getting it dyed black so I can wear it over and over again as a cocktail dress because I love it so much.
