The photo on the website doesn't do it justice. The dress hangs weird on the model but it's absolutely flattering on a woman with more curves. The black band across the stomach hides the tummy bulge, the skirt portion hangs nicely off the hips, and a slightly larger bust looks very sexy with the neckline of this dress. The material is also a bit stretchy so it hugs the waist nicely. The dress is also appropriate for so many occasions. I can wear it to a wedding, work, or just going out shopping.
