I'm a true 4 and this dress fit perfectly. I got it for myself as a Christmas present and I'm so glad I did. It looks great with or without a petticoat. If you aren't familiar with wearing necklines like this, you may want to try it on to get used to it! I love x-halters, so this was an instant fave.

I love the style of this dress and I can't wait to wear it! The fabric of this dress is very stretchy and doesn't feel as tight up top as it should. If you have bigger boobs this likely won't be an issue for you, but for those of us in the A B category take note (like when you try on a strapless dress, raise your hands over your head and now half of your bra is showing) I tried it on again with a very padded strapless bra and I think that should help and keep everything in place.

Latasha Oh my God. I usually do not write reviews but this dress is so beautiful it made me do it! It is a very snug fitting dress so I would advise you to get the size that you usually wear. It looks great for a night out on the town with some stylish pumps. I wish this dress came in white so that I could purchase that too!

I purchased this dress over the Collectif version because pockets! The halter on this dress is more comfortable as well, IMO. This dress is bengaline and runs large, I probably could have gotten a medium, but it was a great deal and a pretty dress. It will be super wrinkly when you get it due to the material, and will require some patient steaming/ironing.

Wow - really pretty. This runs on the large side so size down, particularly because of the full skirt. The neck tie is a bit tight, but the straps are long enough that it can be tied as a halter instead of twisted for a different look.
