For size comparison: I wear a size 8 petite dress at ann taylor, size 6/8 dress pants from Banana Republic, size 8/10 pants from J.crew, size 10 petite dress from J.Crew, size 8 or 10 in Shoshanna dresses. Size 8 in the banana peppers dress (badgley mischka) and size 8 in erin fetherston dresses.
This dress was super small across the shoulders, chest, and ribcage in size 10 and 12. I could zip it up in both sizes but it was simply not comfortable. The bottom half, waist through hips, fit fine in both sizes, less A-line in the size 10. I did not wear either dress to my event.
It hit several inches above my knee in both sizes. Fabric has no stretch at all. If you are full chested, it gives the "smooshed boobs" look. The model picture isn't a true representation of this dress. It looks like sequins on the internet, but it's not. It's like a shiny thread embroidery in circle shapes. But the dress definitely does have a sheen to it. I would not rent this again, but that's just because it wasn't for me.
