LOVE this dress! The fit is perfect.
I have to agree with the other review, the fit on this dress is FANTASTIC. It is also well made/ constructed making it worth the money (really not bad for a go to black dress, I've regretably dropped more on lower quality items)
This dress, much like the navy blue dolce dress, fits like a glove. It's form fitting but the material is thick and warm. I've worn with a body suit or a blouse underneath, leggings or tights for fall. I've worn at least 4 different belts with this dress and it looks different every way I wear it - it's so versatile!
I am a size 2 in Gap, size S-M in American Apparel and I fit a size Small of this dress. If you have hips or bigger boobs (I have not much of either), I'd do a medium. It zips on the side and it zips pretty far up - at first I didn't think my arm was going to let it zip all the way, but once I got it zipped up and readjusted, I realized that it fit perfectly.
Really, really cute.
