First off, I love the dress on the model...but it must have been edited. The color of the skirt is not that nice light color. It's brown....a rich, fairly deep brown. So for those that like the contrast it's not the same. Also, I normally wear a 4 but bought a 6 due to them not having my size. Good thing I did- the 6 is perfect. So, if you're teetering between 2 sizes, go up. My biggest complaint is the overall fit. Biggest problem is it's way more off the shoulders than it appears on the model. It's cut to hit at the outside shoulder meaning you need a strapless bra or want your straps showing. Not what I expected. My last issue could be a body shape thing. I'm 5'4 and 132 pounds of muscle. I workout numerous days/week and while I might have a pudge here or there but am of a pretty athletic build. Now, I do have hips. This dress made me look enormous- maybe it would be better on someone with a pretty straight figure. Loved the dress, but sorry it didn't live up to expectations. Will be going back. Good thing is it arrived 2 days after ordering. Fast ship time!
