Rated 4 out of 5Â by ingrid Cute, everyday dress.
For reference, I'm 42-32-42, generally a size 14. I tried this dress on in 14 and it was very tight across the chest but the waist fit great. I ordered a 16 and it too was snug across the chest and the waist was loose in the back, the elastic just hung there awkwardly, I figure this would be a great dress for pear shaped gals. The fabric allows for some give but I think the bottom is not proportioned to the top. Still, it's an adorable dress.
Size 16 from side to side un-stretched:

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sjardena flattering and easy to wear, but size up
This is a gorgeous dress! I am thrilled with the fit. It is flattering and easy to wear. The material is heavy enough that you don't have to worry about windy days, but light enough for summer heat. You can throw it on and go or add a necklace, jacket, or cardigan. Perfect for a body type like mine, where your waist is your tiniest part. As many have already said, you probably want to size up. I generally wear a 2 in dresses but the 4 fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rockabillyqueen cute, fun, but small
I agree with the other reviewers that suggest sizing up. I went up one size to get a more comfy fit/ I didnt even bother trying anything smaller, as it was obvious when I picked it up, it runs on the small side.
Other then that, the crossover back is completely bra friendly and is so modest, it would be cute on any figure. Nothing to worry about here ladies, its got you covered! ;o)
This is an easy little dress made of a substantial knit. Its very comfy once you get the fit right. I suspect its a little longer then stated, it came just to the top of my knees. (I am 5'5") I am a 34 C, perhaps this is why sizing up was necessary.
All in all a very flattering and effortless dress. It seemed very popular in the store, there was a steady stream of ladies taking it to the fitting rooms.
Good for spring and summer, and really cute paired with a denim jacket, or even black leather!
