This dress is pretty much as advertised. I'm 5'8", 150 lbs, 36C and the 8 fit me just right. I was especially pleased that the arm holes were not too big. True to the description of skimming and not tight, I would say it's 70% tailored/fitted. Said another way, this fits well but it's not as structured as most of my other sheaths. Part of this is because the fabric was a bit more "ponte-like" than I was expecting. That said, it's a very nice and thick ponte AND it's lined, which in my opinion is a huge selling point and oddly enough is never mentioned in the product description.
