"I wore this dress to a gala for a book release. I had to take a long walk from the back of the ballroom to the stage to stand among the other book contributors, most of whom were half my age and size. My walk back sure felt better as I listened to the "mmm hmms" and "go 'head girls" as I returned to my seat!
The dress, a true royal blue, vibrant without being obnoxious- was a stand out in a room of basic black and pastels. At first I wasn't too thrilled with the material (I prefer natural fibers) but the drape and the cut of the dress more than made up for it. The deep neckline is still adjustable enough to hide bra straps, yet still keeps the girls on full display. The seaming in the back made the shape of my usually boring booty look quite nice. The rouching hid any imperfections in my "fluffiness" well, but I still found the need to adjust the front of the dress from time to time.
*NOTE* Though the lining prevents the dress from gripping any unflattering areas, wearing the proper foundation is key. The jeweled belt was also a cute added touch. Thank you IGIGI for making clothing that enhances my curves instead of hiding them! "
