Great dress for the occasion, comfortable to dance in.
The dress was pretty true to size, but I'd recommend that if you are small-chested, to make sure you wear a bra with a little extra padding. While I'm rather petite, I've gained a pound or two around my midsection and found the midline of the dress a little tight while sitting after eating dinner and having a few glasses of wine at the reception. The lower half of the dress hit around my knees and would be rather forgiving if you have somewhat larger hips. While the midline of the size 6 dress felt more comfortable, the arm holes and bust area was way too loose and would not have been appropriate for dancing. I would suggest that if the event is outdoors in the heat, the material and layering of made the dress a bit warm and I sweated through the under layer. Overall, the dress worked out well and was comfortable for most of the evening.
