I'm 5' 8.5", around 127 lbs and absolutely LOVED this dress. I ordered the small even though I thought it might be too short, but the length and fit both turned out to be great. I wore this for my engagement photos and the dress came out stunning in all the pictures! The colors are great and quality is great -- I would definitely recommend this product.

Sigh... I had such high hopes.
I am 5'4", a size 14, and I have a 36DD chest. The L regular size fit perfectly and it just skimmed the ground. The dress is fully lined (thank you!) and it is easy to get on and off. The silk material is graceful, flowing and feminine. The colors are much more vibrant than in the photograph and although this is billed as being "orange", I feel like pink is the predominant color. I was worried that the first horizontal line in the skirt would hit me at thigh level and make me look wide in the hip, but this was not a problem. I thought the collar could be worn loose and open, but the strings are very long and neckline looks awkwardly unfinished if it isn't tied.
Unfortunately, on me, the waist-line hits very high, coming right under my bust line. It made my chest look HUGE. Combined with the cut of the shoulder, I just looked dumpy and frumpy in the dress. I played with putting a T-shirt or cropped cardigan over the dress, but it wasn't great and the price point is a bit high to basically where this as a skirt.
Long skinny girls are likely going to have better luck with this one, though, really tall girls might find this dress a tad short.

At first I wasnt sure how the color would look on my skin because on the picture the model looks a little washed out but decided to order it anyways. I was pleasantly surprised at how much better it looks in person. The flowers are a lot more vibrant and the background is a peach color, not nude. It's is an elastic waist so it's very easy to get into and out and fit really comfortably! Im 5'5, 130 lbs and small fits perfectly. Cant wait to wear it at my sisters briday shower!
