Vox Populi Dress
Beautiful but torso runs small
This is a gorgeous dress. I love the cranberry-red color, and it has a nice retro vibe. However, I am returning this because the chest area is too small. I am a size zero (34A bust), and I couldn't zip up the dress around the chest. The waist fit fine, but the chest area was way way too tight. Given that I am rather flat chested, I'm surprised that the top is so tight on me. I am also petite (less than 5'1") and the dress hung below my knees which was fine actually. I want my dress to be conservative for the wedding. This dress is beautifully tailored and a steal at the sale price. If you have a smaller torso, go for it.

I loved the dress at first sight on the website and ordered it during a sale despite the nagtive comments - it was cheap enough to take a risk !
As I am French and not used to american sizing, I asked a stylist for help. It fits well but has a strange feeling : I must be much, much smaller than the model (1m60) so the dress falls way below the knee and I'm thinking of cutting it. I would recommand only taller women to get this dress !
I feel the fabric is a bit darker in person than on photographs but that might just be the winter (absence of) light talking.

Bust Runs Small
This is a wonderful dress with classic good looks. Unfortunately the bust runs very small. I should have read the reviews before purchasing! I am typically a size 2 or 4 and a 32 DD so I figured a 4 would be perfect but it was much too small to even fully zip.

Great dress, prepare to hem
Things are typically much too short, so I was pretty surprised when this came and went below my knees in length. It fits really well in every other way, and I liked the color even more in person!
