I was looking for a dress to wear for a formal cocktail party in a castle during Christmas time, so I wanted something special, beautiful, and romantic. This dress was exactly what I was looking for! I got it in the wine color, which was a deep, rich red, exactly what I wanted. As others have stated, the dress is very flattering. The cut is elegant and sexy without being too revealing. The material is thick and very comfortable, though it is obviously synthetic. Nobody's going to think you're wearing silk or velvet or anything. I wore a normal bra with it and my straps only showed a tiny bit; I didn't bother to try to fix it. (It was a flesh-toned bra and really only showed a little.) Although the cut is flattering, I'm a bit insecure and squishier than I'd like around the middle, so I wore spanx with it. I ordered a size small, and I'm 5'4" and weigh somewhere around 130 lbs (I haven't weighed myself in a long time so I'm not sure.) The dress fit very nicely. I wore 2 1/2 - inch heels, and the dress went all the way to the floor, but that was what I wanted. If you don't want to wear heels or are a bit short, the dress might be a little long on you. I wish I could include a photo with the review so I could show you how it looks on a real person. I know I would have found that helpful. I felt so beautiful in this dress. Really, I think it was the most beautiful I have ever felt. I got compliments from others, as well, which is always nice! I can't wait to wear it again.
