I LOVED this dress and I can't remember the last time I got so many compliments! It was my first RTR dress and now I'm hooked. I'm usually either a 6 or an 8, so I ordered this dress in both sizes to be safe. Both sizes worked, but I felt more comfortable in the 8 (stayed put better when I lifted my arms, didn't ride up as much when I walked), so I went with that. It was definitely short, but not inappropriately so, especially with the long sleeves--and with heels, super flattering on the legs. The only problem was that it was much hotter during the ceremony than anticipated, and we had to wait longer than expected for it to start, and I felt pretty gross/sweaty in this thing during that. But that's not the dress' fault, and it was perfect for the reception afterward. I would just say, don't wear this dress if you're going to be in hot sun long-term. Otherwise, DO IT.
