Rated 3 out of 5 by it's so beautiful and i'm so bummed I've eyed this dress for months and finally ordered it since warm weather is around the corner. The dress is really stunning and unique. However, the fit just isn't right for me and I don't want to pay for alterations since I already paid so much for the dress. Sadly I have to return it. I ordered a small Petite. I'm 5'3 and the length is perfect for me (looks like same as length on model). I was surprised to find that the waist was too big. I'm typically a size 4 and this was not fitted enough around my 27" waist. The other problem was the chest. The pleats look very awkward. I'm a 34D and the top of this dress pushes me down in an unflattering way and tight fit causes the pleats to stick out. So for my hourglass shape, this dress runs small in the chest and big in the waist. That being said, the general silhouette of this dress is gorgeous and really makes me look taller and leaner. It's just a shame that the chest is so small. I'm not going to try going up to a medium because the waist will be even bigger. March 6, 2013
