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!
