I really like this dress - the fit was perfect. I wore it for my anniversary dinner. I wore a size 2 and I normally wear a 0 or 2, depending on the style and the designer (I did not get a size 0 to compare, as they were out, but I'm inclined to say the dress runs a little small). The fabric is "thick" and not stretchy, but I found it very comfortable. My arms are not particularly thin, and I thought the sleeves fit well - not too tight and not too loose. Nor were they too long, which is obviously sometimes a problem for short women like me!
I was specifically looking for something warm (cold climate) and somewhat subdued (knew I'd be more dressed up than others at the restaurant). The dress is very pretty up-close. It's not something that people are probably going to stop you and give you compliments on because it's pretty straightforward and simple but if you're looking for a nice, tasteful LBD, it's a great choice - particularly in the winter or cooler climates. It's short and form fitting, so it's not dowdy or frumpy. The front hem has an interesting subtle swoop, too, which I don't think I noticed in the photos.
