This Rachel Roy dress is not only bright and cheery, it is also flattering, and easy to wear. First of all, the ruching through out hides any flaws or body issues you may have. The bright, busy floral pattern is very distracting to the eye making the view focus less on your body, and more on your face. The pleated ruffles at the bust enhance the area and create movement. And because the right ruffles goes up higher than the left ruffle it causes the viewer eyes to follow the ruffle up to your beautiful smiling face. Side zip. Light weight and unlined.
