Loved the material and tried really hard to make this work, but to no avail. Waist seam as shown is not accurate - it is much higher. 5'8" 125 lbs. purchased a small. The top was fitted, but not uncomfortably so. The bottom, from the "waist" seam down, was much too big. I thought it must have pockets it was so oddly big, but I never found any. Just about eight inches too much fabric on either side.

by egrn1 Updated review...Love the dress!!
Had to write another review. My initial was on the small petite (see pic) where the length was good but the bodice too short. I am 5'4" 125... Well, tried on the small regular and the bodice fits much better, the length is longer too, and what a difference! This dress has a bodice with darker hue to it which is more slimming compared to the lighter tone of the petite dress, and overall the dress is a much much better fit and definitely a keeper! I am glad I tried on a different size, and also love the color being a deeper blue. There is a color variation for each dress which makes each one unique.. Try on a few different sizes, once you find the right fit and color, you will be happy!
I mentioned belting it before, but I think it would take away from the real essence of the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vintageflea This dress does run small in the top which was to my advantage as the regular xs fit me perfectly up top and I havea 32a chest size. I am petite at 5 ft 2inches so the length had to be hemmed a couple of inches to keep it at floor length ( I wanted it longer than the model has it). Despite the regular sizing for my stature the waist comes to my natural waist and the back opening falls where it should. The dress is not lined but it is not see through either.The fabric unfortunately is rayon but is blended with polyester so hopefully it won't look too disastrous after washing.
All in all this is a nice piece. Most will want to size up unless flat chested like me. For petites I would say try both petite and regular sizing if you don't mind hemming.
