Beautiful but fits large
This is a beautifully tailored dress. I actually like the way that it drapes against my body. I think it is very flattering. It is a quintessential A-line dress meaning that the waistline is less defined (as noted by prior reviewers). However, I am returning this because it runs large. I got a size 0, and I had about two inches of extra space in the chest area. I'm very petite, but this runs large. Really too bad - I love the dress and if there was a smaller size, I would definitely get it.

Not as pictured
I loved this dress in the image. But in person its fits more like a tent. There's no waist line to it. I have 34C breasts and it made me look pregnant. (at age 50 that's not a good thing!). The fabric and everything was really nice. But in the image it goes in at the waist. In person it just hangs way loose from the breasts down. Its a shame cause the design of the top part and the fabric are so nice. The zipper is on the side so to have it taken in would have been a major alteration I wasn't prepared to make.

I am so dissapointed. This dress is really cute in person and I love the fabric but the zipper on the side of the dress is too stiff for the fabric and it makes the side of the dress "wave" and it just generally looks bad.
