I purchased the wine color which is really a dark red XL (usually Wom 1x). The color is stunning on me and the gathers on the chest/stomach hide a myriad of issues. The skirt has the fullness I've been looking for. I'm 5.4 just need it taken up a few inches so I can use it for ballroom dance competitions since (after adding sparkle of course). Had I purchased it to just wear socially and worn 2" heels the length would have been perfect!
What a great dress. I purchased the XL because I wear a 16 & I'm fairly tall. I read all of the reviews on this dress before I placed my order. I am wearing this dress to a formal wedding in December. The dress fits true to scale, and as someone recently notes, if you are bigger than a C-cup, you may need to wear a lace camisole underneath. I am a D cup, and I'm undecided as to whether I need the camisole or not. This dress is flattering to all shapes because of the way it is designed with the shirring at the smallest part of the waist. The length is fabulous. I'm 5'8" with a 34" inseam, so getting a formal gown that is the perfect length to wear with 3 1/2" heels is troublesome at times. Not with this dress! There were a few people who wrote that they were disappointed with the fabric - not sure what they are thinking, because this is the perfect TRAVEL dress. It does NOT wrinkle. So if you're going a cruise or to a wedding and you have to pack this dress...do not worry. It is awesome. Great value & was here in 3 days time.
I purchased this in XL. It was more than skin tight. I sent it to my sister as she is 2 sizes smaller and 4 inches shorter. She absolutely loved it, It is a beautiful summer dress. Closer to a size M-L than XL. .
It is a nice dress. Have not had the opportunity to wear it yet. Its a fancy dress. Tried it on. Size is good. Tends to be form fitting around the upper tummy. So, if your tummy is a bit like Santa then you might not like this so well. It is long. I'm 5' 5" and even with heels, 2-3" I think the dress will drag on the ground a bit.I tend to be between a L and XL. Went with the L and it seems okay. The XL might be a bit too much material on top.
