Tight arms; odd fit.
The size 2 was true to size, but much shorter than anticipated. I'm only 5'4 and it was rather short. I do have long legs, but I was still surprised. It also must work better for someone without a butt because the lining was clinging oddly and sticking out of the bottom. The arms were ridiculously tight. I do have muscular arms and the lace did loosen up a bit, but if I bent my elbows too much, I was concerned I would tear the fabric. The same must be true for others because the armpit was already torn on the size 2. If I were going to just sit somewhere and not move my arms, I probably could've worn it, but since I was going to the ballet with my children where I knew I'd have to carry them or other items, I didn't want to risk it. The mirrored effect also wasn't quite what I was expecting. If you have tiny arms and no butt, this dress will be perfect. For me, it didn't work so I chose not to wear it.
