Truly beautiful fit - but for a certain body type
I was so excited to get this dress. I thought it had a very 1960s vibe and would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner.
It is indeed truly a beautiful dress. The lace and material are very high quality. But here is why it did not work for me:
1) The underslip was about 3 inches shorter than the lace overlay. Considering the dress is transparent, that was way shorter than I wanted. The slip was midthigh while the overlay was just above the knee. It did not match the look of the main picture.
2) Do you have an hourglass shape? Then I am willing to wager this dress is not for you. My chest and backside were putting the seams to the test while the dress bagged at my waist. I am 5'4", 118 lbs and typically a size 2 dress ( what I ordered in this). I wore a size 0 in the Niceties dress for comparison. But I am also wear a 30 DD bra and 27 jean...so straight, I am not.
The dress does indeed have a beautiful retro vibe...and is probably best suited for Twiggy like shapes. I really wish it had worked!
