Thank you for your feedback.
The sizing runs a little smaller than expected, so I would order a size up.
American Apparel sizes run incredibly small.
I got a size small and yes, there was a warning saying this runs small.

    I got a size small and yes, there was a warning saying this runs small. I should have known since it's from American Apparel but I still took the plunge since I'm usually a small in other stores. Big mistake on my part. I had to return the product, and will be ordering a medium. I'm 5'5 and weigh 118 pounds, usually a size 3 in jeans and small in shirts. Hope my measurements help with your decision if you buy this dress! The customer service was great though, they were prompt to refund my money. Can't wait to get this in a medium so I can wear the dress, because it truly was gorgeous.

    I absolutely love this dress, fits nicely, feels great on and the color is amazing. American apparel I find tend to fit my body type perfectly. I'm so glad I made this purchase.

    one of my best dresses. It IS short. (make sure you know that you're not gonna wear it to Xmas..) The back is so low I don't wear a bra with it. I have red hair and green is the best color to wear, I am constantly complimented when I wear this.

    American Apparel sizes run incredibly small. This dress also has a very low back, not shown in the picture, which makes it impossible to wear a bra with and hard to wear the dress casually. Otherwise, the velvet feels high quality and soft, and the dress is at least a little stretchy.

    It's a magnificent dress, very hot and modern with a bit of Camelot vibe to it. I didn't buy it through Amazon, though, but wanted to write a review so other ladies will know how awesome it is. I had the Burgundy in XS for over a year now, I do wear it fairly often, and it fits like a glove. I'm a 32C/30D bust, about 26" waist, and 37" hips , and Small was falling off my shoulders at every move and was too loose on my skinny-minni stick arms so I had to exchange it for XS. Rarely something that fits my boobs would fit my hips as well, but this dress does! Considering that it's stretchy and will easily accommodate proportionally wide hips I would definitely say size down, and see if the shoulder situation a lot of people complain about will improve. It does ride up, but eventually stops and sits where it's probably supposed to, around mid-thigh. While its' definitely not Sunday mass appropriate I see no problem with the shortness of it, although I'm 5'4" so taller ladies might find the length problematic. Definitely recommend. :-)
