I bought this dress in a 2X and fully expected it would need a few alterations as I'm only 5'2". To my surprise, both the arm length and hem were a perfect fit. The deep V neck wasn't too much, and I loved that there is button closure keeping my girls tucked in! This dress was just what I needed for party season and I'm looking forward to dressing it down with flats and a jean jacket in the spring. If you're on the fence about this dress, don't be. Jist buy it already!!
