This is a super flattering gown on all body shapes. The ruching gives beautiful design lines that follow the V neck shape and also camouflages and shapes. The bodice is cut on the bias so the tucks may need adjusting for each figure but the results are well worth any additional fine tuning. A slight A-line skirt is not overwhelming yet allows for dancing and movement. The coveted sleeve is sheer with a slight bell shape at the wrist. Side zipper. Made in San Francisco, California
