I bought size 4, which is usually the best size for me in FP. It fits perfectly, although there is a little give in the center portion where the cutout is. But the beading is very delicate, so if the dress were tighter I think it might rip. I have worn it a couple times and already one of the hanging strands fell off. The good thing is they are individually sewn on, so it was no trouble to sew it back on again.
