I got this dress in Blue, XS. This is a nice dress, it fits perfectly. However, the lace-up is literally a ribbon, a thin, slippery ribbon. Every time I put the dress on or take it off it would come unlaced. So I tied small loops on the ends of each one, which stopped the ribbon from going through the holes. Then it was too open, and I couldn't get it to stay a little more closed. So I tied two more small loops at the top on each side, where I wanted it held. I wanted it to be a bit risqué, as I am flat-chested I can get away with it, but I found a nude mesh cami that I wear underneath. (See all of this in the photos, though while modeling the dress I had not yet figured out how to 'control' it). I will probably replace the ribbon with a cord, or maybe a thin chain, as my tailor suggested. (FYI: the grommets on the dress are a gold color).
