Plunge works with small bust! Loved skin-hugging fit around butt! Tall girls get L if wearing heels!
I rented an 8R and a 10L for prom. The sizing is a bit confusing, as I was told that the 8 is a US 2, and the 10 is a US 4. I usually wear a 2 unless my wider shoulders pose a problem. I would have gotten both sizes in L, but 8L wasn't available. The 8 fit perfectly, while the 10 was loose but the perfect length since I was wearing 3.5" heels. I decided to go with the 8R anyway and let my heels show. For reference, I am 5'8" and a 32B with 34" hips. My waist is around 25-26. I wore the dress with a nubra type bra, and it showed a little because the plunge was too deep, so I wish I had just used fashion tape. As others have said, the dress is a deeper blue than it appears in the RTR photo. I got many compliments, and I'd say that if you get the right fit, this dress is definitely a show stopper.
