I wore this to my sorority formal and it was fantastic! This dress is a knockout!
I normally wear a 4 in dresses, but it's hard to find a perfect fit without some tailoring because I have a narrower torso and big hips and butt. This dress hugged every curve beautifully, but Spanx might be a good idea for women who want a little bit of smoothing out. The medium was a little large in the top (even though I'm a 34C,) so I used a piece of elastic to bring the straps a little closer together in the back. I'm not sure if it was stretched out or if it was meant to be like that. You don't necessarily need to wear a bra with this (I didn't,) but have a sticky bra and fashion tape on hand in case you don't quite fill it out. It's not a conservative dress by any means; even though the length is fairly modest, it is very tight and low-cut, so I'd recommend it for younger women. It's a little more towards club or cocktail party than wedding reception. I was afraid the medium would be too big, but if you've got some curves, definitely size up. I felt gorgeous in this dress and I would wear it a million times over!
