Â 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 5 out of 5Â by Anthromae First impressions not always right...
When I first tried on this dress I was a little unsure about the fit around the waist. It didn't seem to look quite right but you can't add a belt because it would interfere with the look of the back of the dress (which I LOVE). I actually found that adding a long necklace really helped to balance out the look and elongate the front so I bought it!
It has turned into my go-to weekend (and sometimes casual work) look because it's so comfortable and the fabric is light and airy (and not cheap-feeling like some have said). I also disagree about the top being tight. I'm a 36D and the top fits me perfectly, not tight or loose!

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.
