OK So i am 5'10 and 160lbs. By no way would i EVER consider myself petite. I am usually always a medium/size 29 in everything.
I tried this dress on in store in a XS PETITE (returned from online) and it actually fits perfect. Needless to say you need to size down 2 sizes in this dress and if you want it a bit shorter get the petite. This dress hits me at my natural waist and comes down right to the top of my knee which is perfect.
ALSO i wear the dress backwards! It is so much cuter with that red stripe going down the front side. Gives a great line and is much more flattering. I just needed to snip the label off and it worked great.
The silk is thick enough that you do not need a slip. Feels great on. Wore it with a denim jacket and flats and got soo many compliments! Can't wait to just throw it on with some sandals in the summer.

Â by KayGee87 It's a keeper!
I ordered this dress during the sale despite all of the negative reviews since I loved the style and print and wanted to judge it for myself. I'm really happy that I did that! This dress fits on me just like it does on the model (see picture). It probably won't work for a lot of body types (hence all of the negative reviews), but the XSP fit my 5'4", 100 lb frame just fine, albeit a little bit loose. It might be my wide-hips (31.5") that makes it work for me, but either way, it's a keeper for me!

I really wanted to love this dress. I was going on a very special trip and thought it would be perfect to dress up and dress down. Unfortunately, it just hangs on you. I tried to size down and that did not solve the problem. The silk fabric is beautiful but it gives the dress no shape. the elastic waist hits very low on the hips so a belt does not really add anything to the styling. I am 5'7" 128 lbs and athletic but this dress did nothing for me.
