This dress fit true to size (L) - loosely, as I had expected. I'm 5'9" and normally wear a size 12. The drape of the dress was perfect for me - not too wide or too fitted. It didn't cling to those extra curves I didn't want it to cling to. The material is a little thin, but feels very soft against the skin. Because it's black, it's not so thin that it becomes see-through - although I was wearing it at night in low lighting. The shoulder design is really nice and creates a stylish architectural addition to the dress. The dress is easy to dress up with heels and shiny accessories, and down with some simple sandals. I'm very please!
