I love this dress, it's very comfortable as well as pretty. I read another review before I made my purchase, which helped me to decide. The woman wrote that she ordered her regular size but the dress ran a little small. With that said, I would have normally fit into a medium to large but knowing it's all cotton and it'll probably shrink I ordered ordered an XL which is perfect! It's a little bit big but not too big, loose fitting but not hanging off your shoulders, you'll love it it's very feminine and we're all about looking feminine every chance we get.
My boyfriend wanted to buy me a white cotton nightie, and we saw one in a trendy vintage shop with this brand name. However the price there was easily 40% higher. So I went online and found this one on Overstock.com. I loved the look and the reviews were good. However online there was no sizing information, so I guessed at the size, and order a Large, and when it came I almost returned it because the seamline under the bust was too high cutting across the bust instead of laying under it like it should. Also the bust itself is a little too snug for a nightie. I have a 42" bust so I probably should have ordered the XL, but then the shoulders would probably be too big. The embroidered bodice is a bit rough on the inside too, and I've considered adding a lining to the bodice. Other than that, the style is beautiful, the fabric is lovely and soft, the double-layer skirt enchanting, and the embroidery is very sweet!
I was so impressed with this gown that I ordered another exactly like this and, also, two other LaCera gowns. The skirt has an underskirt and is very elegant. The detailing is lovely and something you don't usually see anymore. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This gown is so pretty and feels so good it seems more like a house dress. It's great to fine something that is not flowers, flannel or fuddy-duddy. The material seems just right, neither too thin nor too heavy. I ordered my regular size and the fit is just fine. Recommended!
I am 5'2 and the small falls 3 to 4 inches above my ankle. I love this beautiful night gown and the light weight cotton is soft and cooling. This is important to me because night sweats are beyond annoying. The detail work on this nightgown is lovely.
