Rated 5 out of 5Â by BoSanBo Adorable for Hourglasses
I love this dress! I tried it on when it arrived in the mail and actually wore it right out to dinner, which I never do (I always wash stuff first). I am a busty (34D), broad-shoudered hourglass shape, size 4/6 in dresses, 5'5" and 135 lbs. and the Small fits well.
There is one big thing that makes this dress work on me, and that is the placement of the stripes. The horizontal ones play up my hourglass shape, the flared skirt balances out my narrower hips with my broad shoulders, and the vertical stripes at the top really play down my shoulders... it's so flattering!
So if you're a slightly-bigger-on-top hourglass, definitely try this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bviguet Just what I was looking for!
I was debating ordering this online exclusive, but I'm so glad I did. I love simple and stylish dresses I can just throw on for the warmer months and this is just what I was looking for! The fabric is a knit, of excellent weight and quality. The buttons are a really unique detail and they can even be unbuttoned (not that I'm sure why you would want to). And the fit is perfect. I am 5'2", 125 lbs, with a few curves, and I used the information another reviewer gave and ordered the regular XS. Not too loose, not too tight, and the skirt hits right above my knee. Altogether, a gorgeous piece and a great addition to my closet!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Erikawithak Crooked Stripes
This is a super cute design, and it's really comfy, too! Unfortunately, it was constructed poorly: the stripes at the seams are sewn crooked. The waistline is the worst: the stripe starts off thin on one side of the waist and then it's a big huge stripe by the time it reaches the other side, like the fabric was cut or gathered incorrectly. It. Looks. BAD. Other than the wonky stripes, the dress is darling.
