Just bought this from the clearance sale. It fit me perfect and easily in a 0 with room to breathe, I didn't find the bottom too tight at all and I have some hips and butt. The length is just perfect, it's not too short at all. If this dress was longer it would look frumpy due to the chest being all covered and the ruffles covering the shape of your body. It needs to be short to keep it fun and sexy. That being said, if you don't like mini dresses or are afraid of showing some leg, you should probably stay away from this dress! Another plus, the short length makes you look tall! I was a little disappointed with how the dress arrived to me. Was not packed in the black garment bag like the usual rentals and it had been moving around in the box and the ruffles were wrinkled. It's not possible to wear it out of the box without steaming first, unlike all the other dresses I have rented. Also the color is a much darker raspberry like pink, not the bright bubblegum pink shown in the photos. I like all pinks, but it was disappointing to see the dress was not the same shade as I pictured it. Overall it's a cute dress and for someone who goes out a lot, good to have in my closet and great for multi course dinners since it hides any tummy. Good alternative to my usual tight dresses, however I don't feel like it's wow enough and wouldn't wear it for any special occasion.
