Bought on sale for my daughter for senior prom. The size 2 fit her beautifully--she's usually between a size 0 and 2 in most women's dresses. It probably is a slightly darker gold than what appears on my computer screen, but is a beautiful color and fabric. The only reason I deducted a star was because the dress is way too long. She's 5'5" and we took it to a tailor to hem about 4 inches for it to almost hit the ground with 1.5" heel sandals. I would think 80% of women buying this dress would need to get it hemmed, and the material is such that it would be hard to do on your own with a regular sewing machine.
