Rated 3 out of 5┬áby BarbaraJo Lovely,....But.....
This dress is just as lovely in person as it is pictured on the website. The colors are vibrant; the fit is fun and flirty. However, as a taller woman, the structure of the dress caused some problems. As photographed, the waist of the dress hits about the natural waist. However, on me waist hit at a really awkward place in that region between the natural waist and what would be an empire waste. Sizing down would have only made that worse. I did order a large, and perhaps should have ordered a Medium (the large is quite large).

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby JosephineGrace Really cute, but VERY short-wasited
I LOVED the photos of this dress, but when it arrived, it was a little harder. The waist is about two inches higher than I expected (and than would be flattering!) and hit at a very weird place. Like other reviewers said - not quite the natural waist, not quite empire, just a weird in-between babydoll length that was awkward and added a lot of extra weight. I ended up being able to solve it by wearing it with a wide (3'') belt around my natural waist which fixed the silhouette nicely and make it really cute! I love the color and got tons of compliments on it, but unless you are very short-waisted or want to go the belt route, I'd say steer clear.

Yea, the waist hits a little high, and it made the dress playful, fun, and memorable. I love the extra volume it gives in the skirt, maybe it looked bad, but i felt great. Nothing is better than sliding your hands in the pockets and rocking this sweet little frock (i like it with booties, high and low, with and without tights!!). I only wish it came in a more lux fabric.
