Unfortunately this shift did notthing for my figure. I am usually a size 6 in Anthro dresses, but I usually size up for shift dresses. I tried a 6 and 8 in this dress, but both made me look like I was with child. The culprit in the rigid sequined fabric. When I bend over slightly, the fabric around the mid-section bulges out. I would't spend this amount of money on a dress that simply looks good from 1 angle. FWIW, the size 6 is about 1.5" shorter than the size 8.
Both the size 6 and 8 I tried on had missing sequins around the shoulder area. I asked an SA for another size 8. For some reason, the size 8 given to me actually had the dimensions of a size 6. I guess quality control was lacking in the production of this dress?

This dress is so pretty. The fabric is great and the colors are just beautiful. This is not a dress I would typically be drawn to, but it just looked so fun. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. The dress is extremely well made and does have some tailoring to it- it is not just a straight up and down sack. It could have used more tailoring to it though. I am petite- but do have some 'junk in the trunk'. This dress fit fine everywhere else on my body but because my rear stuck out it created an odd pocket- a bulge of fabric- above my rear. It was very unflattering and I was so sad because if I pushed the bump inward the dress looked perfect. At this price point and with the tricky sequin fabric I did not want to and did not think it could be altered to fit my shape. I think that busty women will have a similar problem but with the front part of the dress. It is so unfortunate because the dress is so cool. As the other reviewer noted the dress did come with some missing sequins.It wasn't very noticeable but I'm sure over time it will need some repair. You have to be pretty straight up and down for this dress to fit you nicely or rather be very evenly proportioned.

I like the design and fit but the invisible zipper almost ruined this for me, it got caught on the lining and snagged and now the lining has a little hole, all before I could try it on, but I figure I can repair it with needle and thread because I liked it so much when I tried it on , only wish the lining had been pressed better or the zipper not so tight, but beautiful fit and cool look, with the clear sequin.
