Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gardenthymegirl Sky blue dream!
I had to bring this dress home with me because it is just the dreamiest shade of blue and it reminds me of Caribbean waters and sea breezes! It's made of a substantial cotton, like crinkled gauze, very well made pullover styling. Because of the elastic waist, you might be able to size down one size if you are not a bit busty like me. (36C) I'm also petite at 5'3, and the skirt grazes the floor at my height. Thankfully, the elastic allows me to pull the skirt up a bit if needed. The skirt is also very full, but dang it, no pockets! The back is cut so that you cannot wear a regular bra, you'll need a racer-back for this one. Highly recommended as a dress you will want to wear all spring and summer. Looks great on a variety of skin tones!

I totally agree with the reviewer who compared it to a bag - I am usually a Size 10, so that's what I originally tried on. The material stuck out in the back and made me look bigger and then was saggy in the chest area. I tried it on in an 8 with a similiar effect. I don't think I could fit a 6 in the waist, but this runs at least one size too big. It is a GORGEOUS color though, and it is actually alot prettier in "real life" than online - the embroidery and the tassels at the neck are a much more notieable, vibrant orange shade. The dress also appears to be well made. I think it may be worth revisiting.

I love everything about this dress... the little pom poms on the tie in front, the sweet embroidery, the color, the fit. The fit is extremely flattering... I don't have much of a waist but this helps accentuate what few curves I have (thanks to the elastic waist and light crinlin-like slip under the skirt). I do think it would still be great if you are curvy. I am usually a small/4 and I got it in a 2. It it pretty much runs true to size but if you are usually in between sizes you might opt to go down. It is longer on me than on the model (no surprise there). Now all I need is some warm weather!
