Vox Populi Dress
Adorable, but terrible fit in the bustline!
I fell in love with this dress- the color! The shape! The POCKETS! I took the other comment to heart, swallowed my pride about the number, and ordered a size up. The dress arrived quickly, is well-constructed, and of good quality fabric- all seemed well until I got the zipper halfway up my back. Ten minutes later, with the help of my friend and much invoking of that scene from "Gone With The Wind," where Scarlett is getting her bodice cinched up, the dress was on. Sadly, it fit like a medieval torture device. Now, I had planned on losing a bit of weight by the time the wedding rolled around, but nothing short of surgical intervention would make that dress fit.
In sum, unless you a) are pretty flat-chested, or b) willing to buy the dress several sizes larger and have it tailored down to fit, this probably isn't the dress for you... which is a shame! Because it really is quite lovely. Except for the suffocation.

Tight on top
Was very pretty but I had to return it and order the next size up. Fits perfectly until you get near the top. I am only a 34b and I couldn't get the zipper up.
