Now this sort of structural issue doesn't just go away. The wide back thwarted me again three years later when Whitney and I decided to sneak in to the nearby high school's prom. Trust me, it wasn't easy to find a dress this hideous that could zip up my back while still fitting.
Years have passed, but my rib cage remains. In fact, I'm pretty sure that rib cage is the reason this dress has gone unworn for longer than I'd like to admit.
See, those structured shoulders? You know, the kind reminiscent of shoulder pads?
Must you have a supremely narrow frame to successfully wear such a thing?
Can it be worn in real life or is it better left for the next time I attend a costume party as 1984s Superbowl quarterback dressed in drag?
PS- if you think this dress is too 80's housewife you can say so too.
