Thalia Maxi Dress
I'm 5'6" and 135 pounds and the size 6 fit perfectly! Loved the fact that the dress has pockets, that's right ladies. Flattering to all figures.

Inconsistently beautiful, far from perfect
I ordered this dress in Pink Peony (size 2) and Ivory (size 4), based on what was available and since I have been a 2 or 4 depending on designer.
The Pink Peony was a gorgeous cut, quality material and design. However the color was more Pink Bubblegum, than the delicate Rose another reviewer mentioned; I had to send it back for this reason. As the bust was a bit tight for me, I was okay with waiting for the size 4. The color was as expected and the fit more comfortable. But the quality of this dress was drastically different! The gathering of silk chiffon around the bust was sloppy, and puffed out near the zipper. The main stitch attaching the left side (with strap) to the center of the bust was loose, causing stretching and exposing the fabric under the chiffon.
At this point, I will probably take it to be altered and fixed.
At least I didn't pay full price for it, otherwise it would have been sorely disappointing!
