Everyone told me I looked amazing all night :)
This dress was really gorgeous on, and I got nothing but compliments. The color was rich and beautiful!
A few things: I have a very short torso and long legs, and used a tie to tie the straps together up at the top so they wouldn't be too long. This allowed me to go without a bra and not feel exposed. Also, it fit surprisingly well on my large bust - it was definitely on the sexier side, but nothing too inappropriate. It's also a very thick dress (as all herve dresses are) so beware if you get it and your event is on the warmer side! I was a little warmer than I wanted to be.
All in all, it's really fabulous and perfectly fitting. The small went on easy and fit like a glove. I'm between sizes, so more of a 4 than a 6 right now, and had no problems. I didn't need spanx and I'm not even sure you could fit them under the dress. One thing I will say is that I think it needs a little jazzing up for a formal event. The necklace I managed to find went really well with the dress; otherwise I think it has the potential to look a little plain even though it's well fitting and a good color.
