Beautiful fabric and pockets made this a stand-out dress!
The fit was great for my hourglass shape - small in the waist with plenty of room in the hips. I ordered a size up from my usual size to make sure it was comfortable. I'd say the fit is somewhere between small and true-to-size. The straps - as many have mentioned - were really long, but a couple of safety pins on each side kept them where they belong. I had to use big safety pins due to how thick the material is, but was able to pin them inside the dress so they weren't visible. The material is very thick but does have a little bit of give so it fits and flatters really well.
The pockets were a great added bonus! I rented this for my company holiday party, where all the employees get to perform at a music venue. I spent the evening running on and off stage, playing instruments, etc, and the dress was so comfortable I didn't have to spend any time adjusting it. I was able to keep the set list in the pocket so I had a copy all night.
This was my backup dress, but the fit and fabric were so great, I'm glad I got it and chose to wear this one instead!
