I'm 5'1 and around 117 lbs. and the small fit me perfectly! I think that it hits about mid-thigh. I'm not usually one for sequins (although I think they're so pretty), but this one was the perfect amount. Make sure that all the straps are flipped upwards and then you shouldn't have too much of an issue with the itchiness of it.
Took a chance with this while it was on a 20% reduced price, no returns, and couldn't be more delighted. I ordered my usual medium Junior size (I am 5'2", 110 lbs, 34C, 27ish waist, 35 hips) and it fit me perfectly. Smooth fit, without wrinkles/creases, kind of like viscose lays, very curve hugging, but not skin tight (well, a little snug on my bottom, but that is more my issue than the dress' :)). Wore to my attorney Christmas party and am sure it looked like easily a more expensive dress, unique, festive, sexy, yet very classy and not unduly revealing. Paired nicely with a black cardigan of similar material. My boyfriend even commented in the middle of the evening at what a great dress it was. No issues with the criss-crossy straps or scratchiness from sequins, to my happy surprise. Sole complaint was that it inched up over the course of the night, such that I had to pull it back down, from time to time. Maybe, a slightly more slender person around waist/hips would not have that issue. The dress might be on the short side for a taller person in heels, as it hit several inches above my knee, but was perfect for my taste (being pretty short, I favor dresses on the shorter side). Excellent value, even if I never wore it again, though I expect to. Outstanding Lulu's.
I am truly disappointed in this dress. It looks great online, but it's not so glamorous in reality. When I tried on the dress, it looked nothing but cheap. Though the actual material of the dress is acceptable, but the sequins on the straps look like they were carelessly sewn on. Also, the straps slipped and slid all over the place. I do not know if it was because I have petite shoulders or if it was the actual dress. I cannot express my feelings of regret for buying this dress. I do not recommend this dress to any petite sized women or to anyone in general.
