I'm 5'7" (32b-28-37 and the XS works perfectly. I was happy to find a long sleeved dress to wear in the winter. It comes to my knee and looks great with over the knee boots. My one fault with it is that it could be more fitted in the back. It does have a zipper but fits more like a pullover style. No pockets, (which is good for me.)

This is a very cute dress, but is it just me or does this photo from the catalog make it look like it has pockets? It doesn't, at least the XS Petite version I received today doesn't. I think I would have liked it with pockets.
I find it runs slightly big. I'm usually a 2 petite and the XS fits fine

First off, this dress is an entirely different fabric than I was expecting. As with most Ganni dresses, it is their heavy knit, which does drape well, but can be a little harder to wear into spring and summer. Plus, I found it to be longer and a bit more shapely than the sort of of shift in the catalogue and online. I tried my normal size, and the personal shopper at the downtown Boston store told me I should really go down to an XS, though I am usually a solid S or 4-6 in Anthro dresses. The XS was a better fit through the neck, shoulders, and back, as the S had been quite gappy in back, while fitted in the front. Mostly, the fit was just not what I had expected from the photos I had seen, and the other reviewer is certainly correct- there are no pockets and that was a disappointment.
I went with the XS, even though it was more bombshell than loose shift, as it was an overall very flattering dress and the color is gorgeous- I bought the blue. It will be very easy to wear for many occasions, and though that fabric is a little heavier, my experience in the past with it has led me to believe it is incredible durable, travels wonderfully, and is easy to care for. All in all, this dress was a disappointment in that it wasn't what I was expecting, but was beautiful and very wearable in a different kind of way.
