LOVE!!!!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
runs true to size but slightly smaller. i normally wear a 4 was able to wear the size 4 but it fit rather snug. The fabric is a little thicker with a nice gloss/silk finish and it kind of sucks you in and is very flattering. Overall LOVED IT!! got several compliments about how flattering it was!!

Beautiful and Classy

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to a work party this year. The 8 fit like a glove, and I mean it...one more bite of dinner would have been an issue : ). I got the 10 as well...the 10 was very obviously too large. The cut and fabric do not give, but you can't pull this one off it is is too big. I recommend ordering your "normal" size, and next size up.

The dress is beautiful. It's structured and elegant. Perfect cocktail party dress that is more formal. I have a larger bust size and this was very hard for me to fit into. Definitely order a size up (or two)

I really wanted to wear this to graduation, but I made the mistake of trying to squeeze me usually size 0, but curvy self into a size 2 in this dress. Well, all was dandy up until my chest...I had to bind my breasts to even attempt to zip it there. Granted they are 34C, I was just shocked how bad it looked on me :(

This dress is stunning, it runs a little small. I am normally a 0-2, but had to do a size 4 for this dress. Its stunning and sexy, a little tight around the hem. I found the sleeves to be a little longer than cap sleeves on me, but that might just be because of my petite frame.

I love this dress. I usually don't like wearing black dresses because everyone wears black dresses. But this one has amazing details like the cut-outs, pleats, and petals over the shoulders that command attention. I ordered a 6 and it fit like a glove. Loved it!!

Overall fit: Small
The fabric of this dress is thick and luxurious with a beautiful sheen, and the cut outs and ruffle details are unique. Do note that, although the model's legs appear to go on forever, this dress is a couple inches longer than a standard mini length. RTR is right that this style runs small, but I'm not sure it's a full size small. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6; in this style, the 6 fit perfectly and the 8 was distinctly too large. Consider ordering your true size and getting one size larger as your back-up. My only qualm with this dress is the way my arms felt (and looked) in it; the cap sleeves lie much more on the shoulders than on the upper arms, both on the model (as I now see) and on me, and the armholes themselves are a touch small (in both sizes). The end result is that the dress is a little uncomfortable to move my upper body around in and my arms look a tad larger than normal in profile view. Still a stunning dress, though.

Perfect LBD with a little sass. Comfortable fit - there is stretch to the fabric. Figure flattering for those with a small waist.
