This dress is stunning. I had no idea how it would really fit, but I am thrilled with it. It is beautiful.
I am 5'9, tall and usually wear a size 6/8, so I am between a true small and medium. I was unsure how to gauge the size on this dress, especially in length. Many reviewers stated to order two sizes up, and I looked at the sizing guide from the company, and ended up ordering an XL, which is two sizes up from a medium. I was mostly concerned with the length, though. And based on reviews, I fully expected it to be too short, especially to wear with heels.The dress arrived in the two days as promised and it was perfect, lengthwise, even for my 5'11 daughter, who tried it on, too, but it was too big ( and she is about a size 12 and very large busted). Definitely too big for me to be able to wear that night. The fabric has a nice stretch to it and is incredibly comfortable, I ordered the blue, which also has a blue lining, and it really is beautiful...much more expensive looking. I had a black tie event that night and it was perfect for it...except the size. There is a zipper on the upper part of the left side, but I didn't realize that and just slipped it over my head with no problem, as did my daughter.I have a neighbor that is an amazing seamstress, and I ran the dress over to her. She took it up almost 4 inches total and it was perfect! She had to remove the zipper, which was fine. I can still just put it over my head due to the stretch of the fabric. Size-wise, I probably needed the medium, but now I also had the length I need! The static cling issue is real, and it really did take almost a full can of anti-cling stuff to get rid of it, but it did, and I wore it that night. I paid my neighbor almost twice her asking price for the alteration, I was so appreciative, and it was worth every penny.This dress will travel well for cruises, and is appropriate for any formal function! I was comfortable all evening, too. Great buy!
