Beautiful dress but runs very small
This dress is beautiful, and does a great job of hiding extra bulges due to the ruching. I typically wear a size 4, so I ordered a 4 and a 6 since reviews/styling tips says it runs small. I tried to put on the 4 but couldn't even get it over my thighs. I was able to get the 6 pulled up all the way, but I had to squeeze everything in just to get it over my hips and then couldn't get it to zip all the way. It was very snug around my legs, which would have made dancing difficult. Other reviewers had mentioned that it is a heavy dress, and I have to agree...I will rent this dress for a winter event some time in the future but not for an event during warmer weather. I will also have to rent it in a size 8 since even the 6 was too tight. Luckily, I had ordered a back-up dress that fit me perfectly. I would rate this dress higher if the fit was more true to size.
