Woven Plisse Evening Dress
NOTE: This dress is fabulous if you are modest-chested and bootylicious. It looks and feels like a $1000 dress.
Such a gorgeous, expensive-looking material and workmanship, but the BCBG size chart does not apply here. I measure 33-26-36 and can usually fit into a 0 or 2 of most brands. Here, the 2 squashed me on top and was perfect everywhere else. I tried the 4 hoping that with alterations it would work. It was large everywhere, by about 1.5-2 inches. But the way the front is, there's no slope under the bust, so if the top fits and you are big busted like me at 32DD (but measure 33"), the under-bust will bulge outwards. And because the dress is painstakingly put together, it would be very difficult to alter that part. I wish they'd done the bust in a heart shape like I've seen in some promotional photos. But the photo on the LastCall website is an accurate representation. Good luck!
