I read previous reviews that this dress runs large and to order a size down so I did. Ordering a size down worked out really, really well for me. The dress fits me perfectly and I mean perfectly. The length is perfect, I do not need any alterations on the length, as the dress just touches the floor and allows me to walk with ease (no dragging or tripping here!). However, if you wanted to wear heels and were similar in height to me I would recommend opting for the customized dress, as I can't wear heels with this dress if I wanted (luckily I am wearing flats because my bride is a tiny tot). Meaning, if I wore heels, this dress would not touch the floor whatsoever... it'd look like I had on high-waters. As far as the fit of the bodice and straps go, they are also perfect. However (again), my height is almost entirely in my torso and not my legs, so if you're the opposite, the straps may have a bit too much slack and may fall off your shoulders without alterations. The body of the dress fit just right, not a lot of room left in there but not too tight. I thought I'd have to send this dress back and opt for the customization, but I ended up lucking out. Hopefully this review helps others interested in this dress: I'm 5'9", athletic/slim build, 32D, and I'm typically a size S in clothing, size 2 in dresses and a size 26 in jeans. Overall, it is a beautiful dress. I was pleasantly surprised with how gorgeous it looks and how comfortable it is. I'm looking forward to wearing it in January!
