Small like bridal wear dresses
The dress was beautiful, but I was unable to wear it. The waist was positioned awkwardly for my body type, but worst of all, the width of the bodice was incredibly small. I now run pretty true to a 12, but I do have wide shoulders and larger torso width across my back. So...it fit fine in the waist (and was even a little big), but when zipping up the back, it zipped until about 5 inches from the top. The gap between where it stopped zipping was almost as if your torso has to be lean and straight, rather than the hourglass fit that gets a bit wider as you go toward the shoulders. Either way, this dress is exactly like the bridal store dresses--you know, the dresses that you have to buy a couple sizes up and then get altered. It's a win if you are a true size 10, as the 12 may fit you.
