It's like a work of art! Keep in mind, the embellishments are quite noticeable but being that I'm Indian, this does not bother me at all. I wear Medium (8-10) and therefore bought a Medium (chest 40 inches) and it fits like it was made for me. It falls just under the butt and the sleeves are long - not 3/4 quarters as stated above. I can't wait to wear it in Spring. If you're still in doubt about the sizing, go to any Indian sari/lehenga store online and look at the equivalent in measurements. Hopefully, you'll be able to figure out your size.
