I was surprised to find that in this Eliza J dress, I should have bought a size down and gone with 10. Even more, I had hoped that the colors would pop in person but they were a sweet, sort of subtle yellow that totally clashed with my pale olive skin. Also, I think the dress is better reserved for the long-legged. On me, the style made me look shorter (I'm 5'3") and heavier (I'm 160 lbs) than I could have imagined since I usually find that Eliza J dresses are figure-flattering overall. This is a dress for apple-shapes, people with a full-bust and hour-glass figures. It didn't flatter my very pear-shaped body. Also, I'm used to buying regular dresses like this and finding that because of my height, they hit past the knee. This dress was way above the knee on me and I like my dresses just past. Again, a very pretty dress but not for me. If the skirt had been fuller and the waist had been dropped a bit and the yellow was brighter or alternatively, darker, I would have been a happy camper. Unfortunately this style is not for me. And remember go a size down!

Purchased two of these dresses, one in Gray and one in the Olive green. Dresses are as shown in the photo with a deep V-neck. Size is accurate. Only negative is very thin fabric. Great for summer temps but you can see undergarments through the fabric.

I'm 5'8, 175lbs, 36DDD, and olive skinned. I needed a white dress for Diner en Blanc. This dress was absolutely PERFECT, for an elegant dinner!! I bought a size 14 (I'm usually a 12) just so it wouldn't be too tight. I could have got away with buying a 12, but very happy I didn't have to suck in my tummy all night! The material is soft and it flowed and showed off my curves perfectly! The length hit me just below my knees. The inner lining slip was just enough coverage that you did not see through the fabric, I wore skin toned undergarments just in case! I could not be more ecstatic with my purchase! In a crowd of 1200 attendees, not one woman had my dress on...even better!! Thank you thank you thank you!
