Lace is a tricky fabric!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous - both online and in person. The only concerns I had were: 1) the lace was heavier (and harder) than anticipated, but that makes sense given the structure of the gown. Hard to describe exactly what I mean by that unless you can see and feel it. It would not last if it was flimsy lace. 2) this has NEVER happened to me before as I have always been 'pear' shaped & quite petite up 'top', but the dress literally fit my body perfectly except for the arms?! My arms are not big by any means, maybe a little too muscular, so my first time trying on the dress resulted in sheer panic. It fit beautifully EXCEPT the 'hard-laced' arms! I was flabbergasted! However, I have steamed and have tried it on a few times now, so it seems that it just needed to relax a bit and now it is perfect :) This gown is absolutely stunning and worth every cent. Would recommend this gown or anything by Alice + Olivia without hesitation. ShopBop was also fantastic, fast & easy!
