Faux-Wrap-Skirt Dress, Brushstroke
Agree completely with AnaSF, even though I have a different body type: I'm 5'10, slender with no chest. I had all the same fit issues. I adjusted the straps as tight as they can go (I usually have the opposite issue and expand them as much as possible). I'm trying to figure out if I have a "fat" mirror or if the dress is making me look that wide. The chest is way too big. If I don't get it taken in, I'll be flashing people whenever the wind blows, since I can't really wear a bra with it bc it will show.
Phew...maybe I should rethink my 4 stars? It's just sooo dang pretty.
That being said, I really love the color and fabric, so I'm trying to decide if I should just have it taken in or return it.

Pretty material and color, but not the fit is not for everyone. I'm short and I have a fuller figure and this definitely was not the dress for me. It falls into a kind of tulip shape below the empire waist, and it just made me look wide. Also, the straps were adjustable, but adjusted as far as they could go, they still seemed too long, making my chest a little over-exposed. This dress would be great for someone with a longer torso or more narrow waist and a smaller-bust, but for me, it had to go back.
