I received a compliment from one of the most stylish women at my company's holiday party!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
[Note added Sep 2012: I have lost significant weight since I rented this dress, so don't use my current "Usually wears" for evaluation. In December 2012 I was usually a 12, apple body type, bra size 38D, and weight 165.]
This is a fun dress, and the design is very forgiving of flaws like love handles or bulges behind the armpit.
I'm still not a huge fan of the ruffles on the bust, but my husband (who likes a large bust) approved of it. He said it enhanced my good features and glossed over the flaws.
Like the previous reviewer, the dress was longer on me than on the model, but I liked it that way.
The only problem with the fit was that the waist tended to rise up a little bit, but that's probably because of my body just barely fitting into the dress, rather than anything else. The fit across the shoulders and bust was good.
