Rated 5 out of 5 by DiscoGirl I'm normally a size 8 in Girl's From Savoy dresses, but had to size up to a 10 in order for it to fit nicely over my hips. This dress definitely has more of a straight fit compared to their other dresses. If you don't have wide hips, I'd say this is true to size. The top portion of the dress fit perfectly too when I sized up. For reference, my measurements are 36-30-42. It's a very slimming and beautiful dress. Highy recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5
by anthroqueen I've been looking for a casual Marilyn Monroe-esque dress for years. I shy away from full skirt bottoms and I wanted this one to work so badly. The top fit perfectly and showed very little cleavage. Perfect for a picnic or lunch with family or friends. The bottom however left a lot to be desired. There was just way too much material directly beneath the waist then tight at the hips. I could have done without the pouchy pockets also. I could see this working perfectly on someone full in the bust and smaller at the lower half. It was a no for my hourglass figure. Bummer, I guess the search continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CalamityJane I'm in love...
I bought this as a birthday present to myself and as something to wear to weddings this summer. This is my dream dress! It has a vintage pin-up feel but is also a timeless piece that will never go out of style. I am 5'5" and have a very curvy hourglass figure with a 38D bust and larger hips/thighs. I usually wear a 10 in Anthro dresses but can sometimes wear an 8 or a 12. I bought this in the size 10 and it fits perfectly. The cut of this dress along with the nicely tailored pleating manages to make my hips/thighs look smaller while accentuating the narrow part of my waist. It covers my breasts without showing any cleavage and offers enough support that I don't need to wear a strapless bra. The length is ideal and hits right at my knees which elongates my legs. The wide strap makes this halter look classy and seems to make my shoulders appear more narrow. The halter strap length is perfect for me (though it is not adjustable). The stretch paneling around the chest should allow this dress to fit women with many different bust sizes, but the lower half of the dress does not stretch so I would pick a size based off of waist/hip measurements. The fabric is thick but not too heavy and feels very high quality, soft, and not scratchy. I imagine this dress would look good layered with tights/cardigans making it wearable year-round.
