Lovely. And this really makes one wonder why RTW is so often shapeless stuff for plus-size ladies when fitted can be so flattering. Good to know the rouching wasn't too bad.

Wow, "stunning" was the word I was going to use, too! This looks like a design that would be extremely flattering on every body type, and you could not have chosen a more perfect color. I simply love it.
