I ordered this dress for a black tie event . I got it in the navy blue (a good alternative to black) and got a lot of compliments. I am 5'6" 155lbs and I would recommend a size Large. Im a 34D and I wore it without a bra (straps dont go with all bra styles).No show through,enough support. I had it dry cleaned afterward, but I think it would probably do ok in the wash. The simple style of this dress can be casual or dressy so it's very versatile.
I purchased this as a Mother of the Bride dress. It was comfortable, does not wrinkle easily, stylish yet modest. It draped beautifully over my less than perfect build (with some foundation garments). It has its own full lining in the dress. And afterwards it washed beautifully in the machine on the hand wash cycle and I hung it to dry and it is ready to wear. I got many compliments and can and will wear it for other occasions since it doesn't scream MOB.
This dress is fitted. That means that us curvier types aren't doomed to looking larger than we are just because we've got larger chests. The dress is very sparkly and I consistently get compliments on the pale lavender color I chose. The clasp on the jacket is gold-toned. The set is very well made with bra strap loops to keep them in place and zippers and snaps and lining everywhere you need it. Stretchy enough to stay comfortable after a full meal and during dancing (perfect for a wedding). OH, and it packs well, too, and is easy to wash and hang dry. Really a super dress set!
