VERY narrow waist. And just odd fit. Gorgeous on the right body.
I was in love with the dress, and ended up getting it as a replacement backup dress. I tried it on excitedly, and while it did fit (as in, I could zip it up), it would not stay put.
The bust of the dress wanted to throw forward, and the back is so low, there's nothing to keep the bust from tipping way out...unless you are a triple D. I am between a size 4 and 6, wearing a 34 C or D, and even with VS two-cup enhancer I could not fill up the front of this dress enough to keep it from pitching forward (with a regular bra, it was about a 6" gape!). Before you get any ideas, this CANNOT be fixed with fashion tape, or even duct tape. This dress is heavily boned on the interior, with a built-in corset of sorts, much too solid and heavy to be held by adhesives. My only hope was to get a low-back bustier that I could pin or tack the dress to, but there were none to be found the day of my event. After about two hours trying to make it work (and I'm pretty creative when it comes to making it work), I sadly gave up.
At 5'6", I needed 5" heels with 1" platforms to get the 8L up off the floor enough to walk.
Overall, runs at least 1 size small, you MUST have a tiny-waisted curvy body to wear this dress.
