The dress was beautiful on, I received many compliments. You will have to wear a strapless bra or pin your straps. In front the straps will sit under the dress strap but in back the dress strap does a little curve to the side so you will need to pin them which was easy enough to do. At 5'3" I needed the petit length which was not available so I had it hemmed. I loved this dress and wish I had another Ball to attend!
I ordered this dress in cream hoping it would make a good nontraditional wedding dress. The dress itself is beautiful and feels well made. The problem was the light color was just too translucent- revealing too much of my post baby body that I was trying to hide (and, given the relativity heavy fabric of the garment, a slip would have been too heavy, plus I don't know how I would have kept my bra from showing through). However, if I had been in the market for the black version of this dress it would have probably been great since the dark color would do away with the see through issue. I am a D cup and it did show cleavage, but not too much. The fabric wasn't wrinkled at all right out of the shipping box, so would be a great dress to travel with. Don't count on it hiding your bra straps, you'll probably have to go without or wear a strapless. It would have needed hemmed even with wearing heals if I kept it, but I am only 5ft 3 so I expected that.
