Perfect dress, perfect fit
I'm normally a size 0 but I was in my first trimester when I rented this dress for a wedding, so I ordered a 2 and 4. The 2 was a better fit - arms, hips, length - but I ended up wearing the 4 because of my growing tummy (I was 15 weeks with twins). Even though the hips were a bit looser than I would normally wear a dress, it still fit really well and was very flattering. If you see the model picture, you can see how it shapes her waist, and it did exactly that on me (and normally, I don't have much of a waist line). I'm always a little cautious about sleeveless tops since the cut of it can make your arms fat, but this dress covered all the right spots. Color was perfect (a little darker than is pictured, which I liked). I think it's tacky when guests wear super bright colors to weddings, especially a color as bold as red, but this dress was perfect blend of eye-catching vibrant without the tacky brightness.
