This gown is absolutely gorgeous! I heeded the advice of other reviewers and ordered it 2 sizes larger than my usual dress size. The empire waist is rather tight, and that is the reason for ordering at least 1 size larger than expected. The material is soft and luxurious, and the gown is very flattering. I could not be happier with the way it flatters my figure!
Beautiful dress and the style is perfect for curvy women. However it runs very small. I would normally be a 1x, so I ordered a 2x after reading the reviews and am sending it back for a 3x. I hate to have to order a 3x but the part of the dress right under the bust is very snug.
