Rated 5 out of 5┬áby KatiefromDE Perfect fit-and-flare for fuller figures
I've fallen in love with this dress! Yes, it's pretty heavy with sequins, but it's gorgeously sewn and the lace shoulders are are a delicate contrast. I'm a size 8 to 10 and the 8 fits just right--perhaps because it does run a bit big, but I can't complain! I can see how it might overwhelm a petite, but it fits me to a tee. It hits just above my knees, the pleats lay flat (I was worried they would open up because I have full hips), and the waist sits nicely at my natural waist. I'm a 34D and the bust is also a perfect fit. Give this dress a try! I hope you'll love it as much as I do!!

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Rachaeldoll Lovely, but ill fitting
I tried this dress on in a 0 at the store and it was a little large in the bust and under the arms. So, I ordered it in a 0 petite, because I just loved the color and beautiful sequin work. Once it came in I tried it on and though it fit fairly well (still a little large), the waistline was terribly bulky. Even with a belt on, it still had no waistline. I wish it had fit, it's a lovely dress just not very flattering

I can't believe this dress gets poor reviews. I loved it when it was in the holiday catalog but waited for it to go on sale and I almost did cartwheels when it fit me PERFECTLY! The fabric and sequins are gorgeous and the fit (on me) is perfect. I typically wear a size 4 in a dress but went with the 2 because others said it runs large. For reference I am 5'8" and weigh 127ish, fuller in the hips, less so up top! The waist hits right at my waist and the skirt isn't too bulky, just enough to hide my slightly larger backside! Yes, the lace is delicate and the dress is a little heavy but for a special occasion dress who cares?! It is stunning and I am SO HAPPY with this dress. I can't wait to wear it out and show it off! I might just wear it around the house!
