Highly recommend this dress to ladies with all body shapes, as the fabric and design is very forgiving and stretchy. I am 41-31-41 and the Large fit perfectly, though the waist was tight when I was putting on the dress, right when the waist was at the fullest part of my chest, but I gently wiggled it down. Once i arranged the slip, the dress looked great. Defining the body very nicely and looked so chic.
I am on the short side at 5'3.5", the dress came all the way down to my ankles.
The simple design really makes this a versatile piece that may even be worn every season, with the right shoes/accessories.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rubysoho A great dress
I was on the fence about ordering this dress because I'm larger on the bottom than on the top and typically a column style dress isn't something that is flattering on me, but I'm so glad I did! For reference I'm 5'4" and about 130 lbs -- typically a 4 or 6. A small fit me perfectly.
It's a very classy and flattering dress, sexy without being revealing. The top isn't too blousey - and I ordered the belt pictured (the Diamante beaded belt), which gave me better waist definition and a more hourglass shape. The dress is longer on me than the model, but with heels it doesn't seem too long and I won't need to have it altered (which is rare for me!).
Interestingly, after I ordered the dress I stopped by my local store and tried it on, and the small seemed larger -- I wonder if hanging it had stretched it out? The one I got in the mail had a much more sleek and TTS fit. I won't be hanging it, but keeping it flat in a box, just in case. It also came out of the box without a wrinkle.
I'm happy to have a such a timeless and versatile LBD to add to my wardrobe.

I tried this on on a whim at my local Anthro store. I tried on both the small and the medium. I am usually a size 4 or 6, sometimes and 8 (34C-31-38) depending on the brand. In the end, I liked the size medium best although there was no huge difference in the sizing. The medium on me looked much as it does on the model on-line. At 5'9", the dress was a true mid-calf on me and the skirt had a nice column shape as it does on the model. The size small clung to my curves on the bottom, emphasizing my hips and butt, then tapered in at the knees. With the addition of the pleated material, I felt the size small looked less flattering on my body. I will probably have to alter the underslip's straps to make the slip fit better but the dress is so pretty, it's worth it. I do wonder if you need some height to pull this dress off--at least as a midi-dress. I suspect it will be full length on anyone 5'7" and shorter but that may look just as great.
