All in all I was really pleased with this dress. This dress was extremely flattering and I got a ton of compliments all night. I was concerned with the neckline, but the model in this picture must have no chest. If you fill out the top more the V neck sits higher and the straps pull more which makes the cut outs appear small, as the gaps close a bit. I am 5'4, 120 lbs, 32 C and usually wear a size 0 dress, I wore the XS and it fit almost perfectly. The dress squished my chest too flat so I ended up putting a padded strapless bra into the front, without attaching it behind my back, and that kept the shape of my chest and the bra stayed put because the dress is tight and there was no where for it to go! I wish I had been able to try an XXS, but the XS still fit, but if you were any smaller than me I don't think this would fit you the way it’s supposed to. At first it moved around and bunched when I walked but I found wearing Spanx underneath helped the material stay flat and put against my body. The material of Herve Legers is less binding than I thought it would be, for example it is not as thick and binding as a Pleasure Doing Business bandage skirt. I liked this better than the purple Naughty But Nice dress because the zipper down the front and the diagonal bandages at the waistline help hide a less than perfectly flat tummy (as opposed to a dress that just has only wide horizontal bandages across your torso.) Also the length was mid thigh on me, just like on the model. I would definitely recommend it!
