I'm a 2 or 4 in a dress-- 5'3", 115#. I ordered a small. The bodice was VERY tight, as well as VERY high-- if you've got a bustline that's just under your collarbone, it might be perfect. For me, it was not a good fit! I contacted Overstock CS, and the excellent rep just went ahead and sent me a M-- without charging my card again, or demanding that the S be returned first-- and generated a return label at no cost. The M arrived, and fits perfectly. That's a first for me! I'd say the M fits just like an ordinary S in this sort of flowy dress-- and the bodice was at a more standard spot on me. I'd say it would fit a real M person just fine, too-- plenty of elastic in the bit under the bust. The fabric is rayon and spandex, but feels like that silky poly/lycra jersey that's everywhere these days. Very comfortable and elegant, plus unwrinklable-- perfect to cram into a suitcase.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice fabric-- decently made. Hem is even.
- How accurate was the sizing? Inaccurate! The S was more like an XXS.
I love the brilliant colors and the substantial weight of the fabric. Im only 5 feet tall, so it was too long, but I took the hem up 2 inches. The only negative is that the bodice is very shortan extra couple of inches would have made it perfect.
I ordered up a size to make sure the fit in my bust was ok. I couldn't fit the dress and out was also too short for me. I'm 5'7.5". The pattern seemed larger and brighter in person. Not flattering on me at all. It is made of stretchy fabric and is very heavy.
