I wore this dress to the Marine Corps birthday ball. I thought with the sleeve I would stay fairly warm (southern fall weather), but I was mistaken. This dress is extremely thin (almost see through) and a very cool fabric. You probably should plan to wear black spanx, even if you don't usually need them, so you don't see butt or underwear. It is almost see through on the parts where it is more fitted to your body (butt, boobs). In a few pictures with flash, my nude sticky bra showed through. Since the material is so thin, it will show everything hiding underneath. I recommend spanx (boy short style, thong and cheeky would show), also a sticky bra (like the nubra you can find on here). Also get some fashion tape. I used it to keep the top in place. I am 5'4" and was able to wear about a 3" heel with the dress skimming the floor (still had issues with the dress wrapping around my heel while walking). Fits true to size or maybe a bit big, depending on the fit you want. Overall, I loved the dress but it may have been more trouble than it was worth! That's what happens when you order 4 days before your event ;P
Also, one of my sizes came with holes in the seam of the butt. Be prepared to possibly fix that or send back.
