This dress is awesome! It's super comfortable and flattering for my shape- I'm usually a 16, but the sample 16 was a little snug because the dresses are not stretchy at all (which is fine just expect it!) A lot of people are saying the dresses run big, but for me it was the opposite, so be sure to order sample dresses in various sizes first. The color is exactly like the photo, a deep, rich grape and it holds it's shape great, without looking stiff- plus it eliminates the never-ending question what type of bra will maximize security while being discrete? I'm somewhere in between 5'6-5'7 and the standard length is fine, maybe a little long, but with heels it's not a big deal either way. Overall, I would definitely order from Azazie again! Their styles are better than most stores, prices are good, service is awesome, and it's WAY less stressful... thanks for making me look great for my mom's wedding Azazie!
