This dress is simply gorgeous. The lace is beautiful and sexy, and the fit is generally forgiving and flattering, except as others have noted the band sits at a high waist/low ribs area and is tight. I was able to order and wear my regular size 2, and it is slightly uncomfortable at that band, but if I had sized up, the rest of the dress would have been too big. As it is, I am small chested (34B) and the top is roomy. I am 5'4" and 115lb, with a fuller booty and athletic build. I wore it to a holiday party and got tons of compliments. I think if the waistband were just a little bigger and/or stretchy, the dress would be perfect.
