I purchased this for an upcoming formal event. I am beyond happy with this gown. It shimmers in ways you cannot capture on camera. The material has a wonderful stretch to it so it works great with my enhanced bust, yet curves back in nicely for my smaller waist and hips. Elegant, yet sexy. I am 5'6" and 135lbs with a 39" bust and ordered the size 8 and it's perfect! I have a pair of 4" heels and it makes the dress the perfect length, just hitting to the floor. There is a very slight train in the back that completes the dress. Not enough to be stepped on, however. It runs true to size, IMO.
