I don't ever really have occasions to dress up but I like to create occasions :) My husband and I have always enjoyed trying out new restaurants or just going to our favorites, which are not the most kid friendly restaurants, so we try to have date nights and head out for a baby free night which I use as an excuse to dress up!
stretch it wasn't super loose or baggy. I would say if you want to feel more comfortable go up a size but if you really want the figure hugging look that will suck you in, go with your regular size.
If you follow me on instagram you may have seen me style it another way! Because of the flare, the dress is also really cute styled as a skirt with a sweater over it. I ended up wearing it with a blazer that night.
