I absolutely agree with the other reviewer. This dress is beautiful. I'm deciding between this and one other dress to wear to my wedding. I'm tall and thin, and tried the 8, which fit beautifully. I decided to try the 6 as well, though, and it's even better. The drop waist is just the littlest bit tighter with the 6 and allows for slight blousing and a more authentic "flapper-era" feel. My sister in law, who knows her stuff about sewing, was unimpressed with the hem (check out the close detail). But, since I know nothing, I just think it's perfect...

Sweet & Stunning Blush
I'm wearing this last-minute (bought the day of) for a formal event, 20 weeks pregnant! I have a small budding bump at this point, and it was difficult to find something flattering that didn't make me look just full, or accentuate the "bump" in a good way. I think it would be adorable on someone tall and thin, but it works great maternity-style for my 5'3" hourglass self. I also wore a size smaller than usual, as it is a baggy fit and I like to show some form.
If you order this online - note that the slip has a blush tint to it. I think it's lovely, but I didn't see that in the description.
