Moonlit Garden Dress
Some good, some bad.
I'm really torn about this dress. The fit is nice; I'm 5'8, 32D and normally wear a 4/6 in dresses, and the 6 fit fine, though it will be rather short with anything longer than 2" heels (disappointing). My real problem with the dress is how staticky it is. I can use anti-static spray on it, but I'm worried it will stick to me all night. The ruffles are cute, but they have to sit a certain way or they look weird. Lastly, at least on me, the top isn't tight enough to hold up my chest, so I'll have to get a backless bra or some tape; as is, the empire-esque waist (it kind of makes an arc) makes my chest look odd. Again though, the hammered silk is quite nice, and it will be a great dress to dress up for a summer wedding or down with a denim jacket to dinner.

lovely dress, odd fit for me
I wish I had the same experience as the other reviewers, but I did not find this fit typical for a size 4-6. I'm long waisted and have a muscular upper body but still a 34B and the top in a size 6 was quite tight, flattening my chest while the bottom fit perfectly. For the price and the quality, I'm thinking of keeping it as it's still pretty comfortable and very 'Viva la 1940's!!' But I wonder if this is a case where each dress has a slightly different cut.

This dress is absolutely beautiful. I am 5'7", 125lbs and a 34B and this fits TTS. The length is perfect with heels and I was able to fill out the chest despite not being busty.
The dress is light weight and feels very relaxed on. I love the colors in this fabric, they're amazing in person.
I love the neckline and the frills are not too overbearing.

Beautiful and fits beautifully. I was worried it would be long, but with even a 2" heel the length is perfection.
Very 1930s silhouette with the bias cut below the bustline and the ruffles from the shoulder.
So pretty: the ideal summer dinner dress.
