Just as stunning in person as in photo's. I am 5'10" - 155lbs Usually wear a size 8 in dresses, but decided to go up one size for fear of arms not comfy (from reading other comments) glad I did, I am broad shouldered, tall and slender-ish. Drapes perfectly, No pooch - Smooth and lays wonderfully. Color is as shown. - Bought this for a wedding in June, excited to wear!! The ONLY reason I would believe it would be too hot in June, is if I had a hot flash melt down :) lol - Highly recommend and extremely satisfied. I wanted to leave a review because of how well made the dress is and the quality. If it's giving you issues, please size UP!
