Rated 3 out of 5Â by happyrunner77 great dress, but petite is REALLY short
The design and quality of this dress are great and I love the color. I normally wear a size 0 or 2 in most everything I buy here, however based on the reviews I ordered both a size 2P and a 4P. The 4 was great except it was really, really short. I'm only 5'2" and it hit me at my very upper thigh. I had intended to wear this dress for a wedding, however that length wouldn't be appropriate. The size 4 regular length was unfortunately sold out so this dress had to go back.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Piesie Nice, but tight in the bust
The dress is cute and would stand out in the typical party of black dresses. It's a bit short, but doable. I bought a 10P. The problem is that it was too tight in the bust for me (I'm a 34DD) and slightly large in the waist and hips. If you're smaller-chested and have great legs, it might look cute on you. It has a separate nude slip that you use under the dress. Also, I found the print a little too large on my frame.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Quirker Ordered the 0P and I thought it was strangely wide across the upper body. Great concept - very very bright, I'm not sure I like this intense brightness yet to be honest but I suspect I'd need a very well-thought out makeup look for this colour to not completely wash me out (having said that I think the entire look could look quite amazing with the right shoes, hair AND makeup) and after some alteration but the fit on the top was quite strange. Remembered reading a review somewhere that it is strangely straight cut and shiftier than a shift dress (hips fit ok, but too large around the armpits and sits a little too low on the chest
I am 5'2, 32B-25-31, 110 pounds, petite, and will definitely need to get it taken in at the armpits & up so that the slip inside doesn't show. And yes before I forget, the slip is cut quite straight seems to sit higher than the actual dress itself around the decolletage area. The neckline on the dress is completely straight, it dips slightly
Perhaps slightly curvier women would have better luck than I did.
