I used to wear lots and lots of vintage dresses when I was younger. Of course none of them fit me anymore...I have grown to be curvy and they do not sell larger sizes in vintage stores (or they are hard to find). This dress is amazing and reminds me of everything I used to wear! Light weight gauze over a petticoat gives a perfect vintage silhouette. Because of the length and darker, more saturated colors, it is a dress that I can grow old with. The model is definitely wearing a petite since mine is a lot lower on the chest and sits below the knee in length. It fits true to size. I may shorten the straps, which looks easy to do at the back. The only thing I don't like is the bright turquoise exposed zipper in the back. Its pricey, but I don't want to chance losing it if it sells out before going on sale.

I love this dress! I love that it's a longer length and unlike many anthro dresses, the straps are permanently attached. The quality seems to be high. It does have a certain amount of pouf in the skirt due to the underskirt. I size up in most Tracy Reese dresses, but I stayed in my true size 4 and it was a perfect fit, so I would say it fits true to size in general, but for Tracy Reese it runs big, so consider sizing down from your regular Tracy Reese size.
I think depending on your proportions and bust size, the straps may be a little long, but it should be an easy fix to shorten them. They are not adjustable. I wore it with a belt, but I think it looks good with or without one.
The only drawbacks I can think of are that it has to be dry cleaned and that it doesn't have pockets.

I'm 5'6", 130 lbs and wear a 32C bra. Size 2 fit well. I was really excited about this dress, but it just didn't wow me. The material was scratchy and stiff, and the skirt was maimed from shipping. Take out the crinoline and cut a few inches off the bottom, and I'd pay half price for it.
