ASOS Pretty Floral Rose Bandeau Midi Prom Dress

1. My problem with wedding guest dress shopping went from having too few options to suddenly having too many options. This ASOS Pretty Floral Rose Bandeau Midi Prom Dress is a keeper for a number of reasons (like being wrinkle-concealing—important when traveling, having a flattering sweetheart neckline, and POCKETS!) Only the smallest sizes remain in the colorway pictured here, but the style is available in several different prints (find here, here, here, here, and here). I am wearing size US 0 in the picture here, and it measures 36.5″ in overall length, 12″ across the waist, and 15″ from underarm to underarm.
