Wearing this dress hugged some curves I didnt even know I had. If youre busty gal I would recommend ordering a size up because there are cups in the dress or going completely braless and doing the boob lift technique. The material is thick, like thick thick thick it is a HEAVY dress (just means its true quality, not that fashion nova mess). This dress does have shoulder pads too to give the exaggerated shoulder look and I love it, if you dont like it you can cut it out since its not sewn in a pocket. I also ordered another , Genesis, and judging from the material they have a thick bandage dress thing going on. The quality is incredible, so I would recommend if you need to wash, send it to a dry cleaner.
