Rated 5 out of 5Â by killclick Beware length! Otherwise amazing
The two main things are:
1) The stripes don't make you look wider, because of the way they flow and are sometimes a bit diagnoal
2) the length is a touch short in my opinion. Barefooted, 5'7, it doesn't touch the floor but does cover my ankles. That's in a size Large.
I normally wear a 14, and sometimes a 16, and sometimes an XL or an L, all style and brand depending. I took the L in this; but the L will accommodate a 12, 14, 16--because of the stretch and ease of this dress. I have a large bust--38DD--and was drawn to this because it looked like it could accommodate a regular bra. It can. And, if you order a size that is snug on you, and don't need a TON of support, you'll be fine without one, too, as it's constructed in a way that gives the bust area some structure without being painful.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Victorianist Versatile but not for large busted
This dress was so soft and pretty. It does look perfect for day to evening casual.
Unfortunately, the bust seams did not work with my bust. For reference, I am a 32DD. The seams that fall so nicely under the model's breasts in the picture landed somewhere closer to the middle of mine. When I tried pulling it down to see if it would work, the sides of the dress ended up way too low, showing lots of bra. Sigh.
I do think people with a smaller bust would look lovely in this soft and flowy basic.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DenverStacy A Summer must!
Ladies....this dress is a must for summer! I chose the black/creme dress and what a flattering little number. Even better that the price is right. The stripes really do flatter so don't be afraid of them. The bottom is flowy and doesn't hug your curves and the stripes around the waist are so slimming! I dressed it up in vegas this weekend by adding a statement necklace and wedge heels. It's just a touch too long for me to wear with flats. I'm 5'5", 135lbs and 34D and the small is a perfect fit. I do wonder how the chest would fit for someone with a smaller bust...so maybe take a look at other reviews to see what they say about that. For me, I love it!
