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.

I ❤️ this dress so much! I received so many compliments. It was also refreshing to know that I was dressed uniquely; as this isn't a typical run of the mill 'little black dress'. I ordered the XL because I have big boobs. I did have to take it to a seamstress to have it altered so, in my opinion, I could have ordered a size down, maybe even two sizes since the material stretches. It is a very comfortable fit and hugs my curves in all of the right places. The pockets kept my lipgloss and identification handy; didn't need to carry my clutch around. Unfortunately, I did not get a single pic of myself in the dress. I will definitely order from this site again and can't wait for my chance to wear this dress again!

This dress is incredible! It fits well, has a full skirt that twirls fantastically, and is very flattering. I bought this to wear to my college graduation. I have a 27" waist, 5'1" and wear a 32A bra. The small fit perfectly. It hits about two inches below my knee for a flattering length. There is a bit of room at the top, so it could fit someone with a larger bust than me as well. I can see the halter straps being an issue as they are not adjustable (they are just a touch too big on me, but it's not very noticeable). I can't wait to wear this to graduation! Will definitely be shopping with Unique Vintage again.
