Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mikkif8 So much potential
This dress is beautiful and the colors are very intense. The fact that it's one big long A-line, flowy dress makes it such a tough call. Some angles look great like the model and other angles, as you can guess, make you look like you have an elephant underneath.
I had seen this at the store in the regular-sizing and had tried on an XS which fit perfectly except for the length. So while I had preferred to order a PS, it was sold out so I tried the PXS (in case the only difference was the length). It didn't fit. I was too broad and my chest was too big (34B) for the top part of the dress. However, the length in the petite size was perfect, falling exactly how it's falling on the modelâ€”just above the ankle. I'm 5'2" for reference.
One other thing to mention is that it is very thin (but not in a sheer way; the material is light and somewhat opaque) so at some angles if the sun or any light is right behind you, you can see your silhouette. It would be great if you were on vacation at the beach and you have your swimsuit on underneath.
So this will go back and I'll try for different sizing. I'm not sure the print and colors will be able to save the fact that it adds a few hundred pounds to your figure but I'm hoping it will work with the right size.
