Nicely constructed, divinely stretchy!
I loved this dress. It was very stretchy, so happily very forgiving. I did use fashion tape to avoid being too boobalicious (closer-up picture is BEFORE fashion tape, FYI), but just a little bit, and I didn't think about cleavage once I was taped. Seriously, this was very, very comfy -- and I tend to live in denim and sweats -- but looked elegant and was awesome for my extremely formal black-tie event. Even though it's a simple black dress, there's lots of detailing. I'm generally between a size 6 and 8, I've had two babies so I have a slightly rounded tummy. Because the "girls" hang lower than they did pre-baby, I used adhesive bra cups - but honestly, someone younger might be able to rock this dress without them. I tried both the SL and the M reg (they were out of the M long). Everyone agreed that the S fit better, and with 3 or 4 inch heels (forget which), I definitely needed that length. Recommend spanx because it hugs the rump and hips a little.
