Curvy ladies: beware!
I received the 6R and the 8R, and wore the 6R.
Pros: It makes your butt look really good! The tulle is super cute and looks great when you're walking or dancing.
Cons: The sizing was so strange. First, like everyone else has said, the gown is SHORT. I'm only 5'3, and I thought that the regular would be just fine, but it was hitting my ankles with 3-inch heels on. Wearing flats with a gown felt wrong, so I just dealt with it and wore the heels. I tried on both gowns - the 8 fit my hips, but the straps were so loose that they were falling down while I was just standing around. The 6 was still loose on top (so strange, because I'm not a small person), but fit my hips so tightly that I couldn't adjust the dress once it shifted off-center. And like everyone else has mentioned, the tulle was wrinkled and smushed, so I had to do some ironing before I could wear it.
I really wanted to love this dress. It would probably have fit perfectly on a person with smaller proportions than me.
