"i bit the bullet and got this strapless (w/ attachable strap) dress in the fall to wear as a layering dress with leggings, boots, sweaters, and coats. am i glad to have gotten it. the material is a bit different, similar to a bathing suit. it gives a wonderfully comfortable stretch. it hits mid thigh, and can be worn shorter or longer by pulling on the torso. the sweetheart neckline & ruching is super flattering, and love how there's that gummy lining on the inside so the top doesnt flip over. for me, fits a bit "loose", in the sense that there is ruching. i'm 5'3 115# and 34b, and the Xsmall fit much better than the Small. if you're well endowed, i'd recommend going up a size."
