I rented this for a black-tie event expecting it to be a simple and stylish dress. However, when I received it, it fit so differently from what I expected and I ended up wearing my backup... I ordered a size 14 (size up to what I would normally receive) thinking it would be more fitted like it stated in the description but this was not the case- the bust and waist was too wide and the straps were loose and the material would get suck and fit weirdly around my hips and butt. This may be due to my smaller stature though I did ask my taller friends to try it on and they had similar problems especially with the top.
Overally wasn't the dress for me so I would recommend for someone much taller will a less curvier figure.Hired Claudette Maxi Dress by We Are Kindred
