Cute dress, but BEWARE the hemline!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is great. I didn't end up wearing it because it was REALLY short. Given, I'm pretty tall and I have a booty that hikes up any skirt a bit, but I had about 2 inches of skirt below my butt to work with. Maybe if I was attending a winter event and had the option of opaque tights, this could have worked.
Even though I did not end up wearing this dress to my event, I will say that other than the length it fit really well. It does run small, so definitely order at least a size up. I usually wear a 6 or an 8, and the 10 fit me best. I had my roommate and a friend try on the 8, and it looked great on them as well, even though we have totally different body types. They are both in the 5'2"-5'4" range, and the length was not a problem for them.
If you are considering this dress, it's a beautiful piece. I definitely feel that it is as pretty in person as it is in the photo. Just be sure to order a larger size than usual and beware of the length! I would order a back-up style if tights aren't an option for your event.
