Rated 2 out of 5 by DressesPlease Poor Zipper Design
I love the style of this dress (the sleeves, the collar and the bow at the waist), but the zipper construction makes this dress unwearable. The side zipper causes the very lightweight material to pucker and bulge out at the side. Nothing will flatten it.
I have tried buying Karen Walker dresses previously, and they seem to a bit long waisted and I have a short torso so they never fit right. I don't know if the zipper wouldn't pucker as much if you had a longer torso. Unfortunately, will have to return this.
I am normally a size 0 or 2, and the XS fit fine.

I read the reviews about the zipper, but with free shipping I took a shot at the dresss myself. I even ordered petite to see if that helped with the sizing and zipper. You can see yourself in the picture. Also, the material seems thin. I think in sunlight you might be able to see through the dress. I could see the tag when i held the dress up to the light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by anibo the zipper!!
when I ordered mine there was only one review and it critiqued the zipper, I thought maybe it was just hers, maybe it didn't flatter her... it was definitely a mistake to use this zipper on this fabric. I received mine and I wanted to love it, it is so soft and so girly, yes it looks a bit amish/school girl but it is adorable; too bad it is so thin it's almost see through so any backlight gives a peep show. And it does not go in at the waist, it is wider, a Small had more than enough room for me to want to try the XS (if it weren't for the zipper) and I am 5'5'' and 130lbs
I tried to justify it but then my mother and aunt both said "NO!!" ... It was very hard to accept that such a beautiful dress was not flattering.
