I purchased three of these dresses for my bridesmaids for my wedding next summer. Overall the dresses are beautiful! My bridesmaids said the waist is high and tighter than expected around their ribcage but not uncomfortable. I had to exchange one because the zipper was damaged and another because it was too small. Also all dresses are going to be hemmed 3-4" as they are much longer than expected. They hit below the knee on all of my bridesmaids. I would recommend going up a size if you are unsure and make sure to try the zippers.
Overall adorable dress, beautiful color and amazing price!!

Great dress with higher tight waist and puffy bottom
In general, it is a lovely dress in bright orangey coral color. It is tight on the top and puffy at the bottom, and have a flare of 60's with a modern twist. I am 5'4'' and this hits right on my knee. The waist is higher than I expected, but it looked okay with a waist defining belt or stash as shown in picture III. I am normally between size 0 and 00, and size 0 fitted me like a glove.
I am planning to wear it to a wedding as a bridesmaid, and pair it with vintage accessories which will complement the dress. The fabric is very beautiful but as others said it is prone to crinkles.
It is a good bargain on sales and I am definitely keeping it!

The dress fits perfectly, very true to size. It is a side zip and a true-size dress, so if you are larger through the rib-cage or between sizes I would go up a size.
Very vintage look and feel, but the length and cut still is modern. I bought it to wear to work and around town, not for a wedding.
The cotton-silk blend wrinkles easily, mine arrived a mess. Simple to spray and let air dry and the wrinkles released, but could be an issue if traveling for a wedding.
I am 5'4" and with heels the dress is knee-length, not short (the model is likely quite tall so the dress appears shorter).
Very happy with dress!

The upper cut of this dress was off for my 5'4 140 pound frame. I am usually an 8-10 and a ten was too big on the top. I also thought a snap would need to be attached as the cut was very deep and would possibly under garments. The built in slip was very scratchy and would not be comfortable for a wedding and reception, if dancing was involved. The color is AMAZING!
