Dress was beautiful, but definitely size up!
I loved the color of this dress, and I really did feel like a princess in it. The 6P was my backup size, and without my very strong boyfriend helping me into the dress, I would not have been able to zip it up! The bodice had lots of boning and zero stretch, so I was honestly surprised when we forcefully were able to zip it up. I probably would have fit best into the size 8 even though I'm normally a small or size 2. I do have a wider ribcage, which is why the bodice was so difficult to zip. The boning kind of cut into me once I did fit into the dress, but not enough to really bother me throughout the night.
For someone with a larger ribcage or bigger breast size, I would definitely size up 1 or 2 sizes given that there is no "give" in the bodice at all. The waistline also fit more like a regular and not a petite, so I had to adjust a bit. Other than that, the length was perfect!
