I usually wear 6. This dress is true to size so the six fit just right. It accentuated my face because the neck cut line makes you show off your neck and just a little shoulder thus jour face is the center of attention in this dress. The fabric is of great quality, I took high resolution pics in this dress and the dress looked exquisite. The only reason is not five stars for me is because it kept sliding up on leg opening and showing more than I would like. This dress is shaper, your torso looks firm in it. Good for hiding extra waist line and for cold whether nights.
I wore a medium tunic, my usual size, It fit very wide on waist line and long on shoulders. For that reason, I was not able to show it off. I wore it a Blazer that covered the problem area and it worked fine for me. People complemented the bottom part of the tunic which was the only thing showing of the dress. It does not shape contour it only adorns it. If you try to hide some irregularities on you torso this is not for you. If you are to rent this tunic consider a size down.
