Rated 3 out of 5┬áby mummie Restricted arm movement
The dress fits TTS with a great higher waist, elongating the lower body. While the material is beautiful and good quality, it is somewhat sheer and requires a nude slip (or nude bra and undies at the least). The biggest problem with this dress, however, is the cut of the armholes. The front armhole is cut far out onto the shoulder restricting arm movement. Essentially, you can't lift your arms up in front of you. Sizing up didn't make a difference in that the arm is still to far out to allow for movement. Hopefully this will get corrected in other batches of production of this dress since it is such a beautiful summer dress.

This is an absolutely beautiful and well-made (in terms of fabric and stitching) dress. It would be lovely for any summer occasion.
That said, I agree completely with the other reviewer who felt the arm and shoulder sections are not TTS.
While the rest of the dress fits well, the arm and shoulders are just completely restricting. I thought it was because I have slightly muscular biceps (hellloooo, gym membership!) but then I sized up once....then twice out of sheer curiosity and nope, still had the same problem.
To me, this is a design flaw in the dress so I don't feel confident recommending it. I will say that if it works for you, go for it. The rest of the dress is magnificent. But to avoid disappointment, trying it on in store where you have access to multiple sizes might be less disappointing than ordering online.
Bottom line: Beautiful dress, great fabric, stitching and detail is top notch. Arm holes and shoulders are just all kinds of too small. and strangely do not change when you size up. :(
