As per other reviews, the dress fits a little weird. It's clingy, so Spanx or a thong are a must. Other reviewers mentioned the strange way the fabric gathers in the lower back/butt, and I agree, but it's not a show stopper. I ordered the 6 and 8, the 8 was very large & too long, but the 6 fit very well. The sleeves were a little longer than I'd like, but I'm only 5'4", so it would work well on someone who is taller than I am. A strapless bra is also a must due to the open slits in the arm/shoulder area. Undergarments need to be well planned with this dress, but I was very happy overall. I wore this to a wedding & received many compllments, even from the bride! The color is beautiful & really makes it stand out among the other boring, black dresses. I wore it with nude heals and gold/coral earrings & a gold cuff bracelet (that was a RTR rental as well). I would definitely rent this one again.
