Rated 5 out of 5Â by StephanieJ Lovely Retro Dress
When I first saw this dress, I loved everything about it. Beautiful print - check! Retro style - check! Fitted bodice - check! For reference, I'm 5'3", 125 lbs, 32A bust, 26" waist, and typically a size 0/2 or x-small. I initially tried on a size 2, which is my typical dress size. I was able to zip up the dress, but man oh man, I could hardly breath in it! The bodice was pushing into my ribcage and the armholes were so tight. I initially thought this was a result of the 10 more pounds of baby weight I have yet to lose, but after reading the other reviews online I decided to try the next size up. Ah, much better! The size 4 fit perfectly. None of the other dresses I own are a size 4 - all of them are either size 0 or 2, so I would say this dress definitely runs small. Size up at least one size for sure. What I love most about this dress is the retro fitted-bodice-and-flared-skirt silhouette. This dress is by far one of my favorites!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CraftyMama Beautiful and fun, but not quite right fit for me
I wanted to get this dress so bad for an event--I loved the design, the fun pattern, and great material. This is a size 8 and I like fitted dresses to fit my waist or else I look so boxy/matronly. Unfortunately, my chest (34D) hiked up the waistline just enough to make the fun skirt look too girly on me. At my age, that really doesn't look good so I had to put it back on the rack.
If I was more compact on top, I think this dress would have been perfect!

I tried this on in the store and immediately loved it. I'm about a size 8, but I got a size 10 because I'm busty. (36DD) It's simple but interesting.
