I ordered a size 0 in this dress with a size 2 as a back up. I was notified before my shipment that the 0 was returned damaged and was no longer available, but they still sent me the 2 just in case. I am generally a true size 0, and the 2 in this was huge on me (you probably can't tell, but in the side shot my body was turned, but my chest was moving independently of the dress because it sat so far off of me). I am a 34C, so I am not tiny up top, so I was surprised that was so big even in the 2. In the straight on shot, the dress being too large makes me look a lot wider than I am, I think because it has some good structure to the bodice, so it sat out from my body instead of laying towards it. So definitely try to aim for your correct size or smaller.
The dress itself is a really pretty color and there's a little sparkle to the dress which is fun. As others noted, the dress is much longer in person than it is on the model (which makes sense because the model is probably like 5'10"), but I am almost 5'7" and it still hit me long enough not to be super flattering.
I think it's a really cute dress for someone who is very tall, or if you have a themed event. I would base your sizing off of your waist (if your waist is a small feature for you, then I would size down). There is not any give in the waist, but the rest of it is pretty roomy. I definitely think this would also be very cute on if it had been the correct size :).
