Big and loose
It's a cute top, but it seems to run big in width and long in the straps. I wouldn't expected even an XS to fit a very petite person, despite the drawstring.

Potato Sack Fit
I was so excited for this summer dress... I'm petite so I ordered an XS. I thought it would fit fine since it has a drawstring (and usually those don't fail me). Unfortunately the top portion is so large and long that even if you tie is to fit your waist, the top half flaps around with extra fabric, it looks ridiculous! You can even tell a bit on the model, but the top portion right above the drawstring just has too much extra fabric and puffs out as a result. I'm returning this first thing tomorrow.

Sexy Ballerina dress
This is a total black swan dress! I ordered this in a size 4, I am usually a size 4, sometimes 2. I have a straight thin frame and this dress is definitely designed for a more hourglass shape. I may try the size down since it is SO cute! It has a sexy but demure look... effortless. The skirt is lined and the straps are adjustable. I can see this casual with flat strappy sandals and a holey white cardi or dressed up with some wooden wedges and armfuls of chunky silver bracelets... yeah I think I'll try it in the 2.

perfect in theory
I just got it today. The blush color is so appealing. I like the idea of the dress. It's part ballerina and part vixen! I think it runs too big though! I got a zero and the bodice is way too loose. I'm 5'3" , a small 32b, and about 105. It's so imprtant that the top fits perfectly and would be lovely if it did.... Haven't decided if it's worth it to take to a tailor....

This dress runs very large!
I ordered the blush pink in the smallest sz offered a 2. Before even trying it on, I realized it was too big. However, I liked the color and style so much that I tried it on anyway in hopes that it would fit or I could have it tailored to fit. The dress was very, very large/loose. For anyone who this review may be able to help, I am 5'3" 105 lbs 32d-23-32. If you can order 1-2 sizes down in this dress I'd strongly recommend doing that unless you are in my situation and there is no such luck! :(

Gorgeous ... but runs big
Like the other reviewers, this dress is super cute but way too big. I am usually a 2-4, and the 4 was huge, especially the top.

Josephine Dress
I am very happy with this dress--it can be dressed up or down. I am looking forward to wearing it with strappy sandals this summer, and I've already worn it with over the knee boots out to dinner. I looked at other reviews of Rory Beca products, and since most of them ran a little large, I went with a small. I am a 34DD so sometimes medium is best, but the small was fine. I like that the cleavage area has a hook and eye closure, and this can be worn with a strapless bra which is great for me! My only issue is the area around the waist, but once I realized that the tie goes under the elastic rather than over it, it was very flattering. You don't notice the elastic this way since the top part is blousy enough. I don't know if it would have been worth the full price but I was happy with the quality for what I paid for it on sale! The smoky taupe color is more taupe as described, not as silvery as pictured, and the tie is kind of olive colored, FYI.

Almost - but not quite
Cute color, great fit and material, but it needs somethng like a stitch to hold down the fold. it jsut looked akward when i tried it on - like the fold was going to just flop all over the place.

Love it!
What can i say - it was better than i had imagined! the material is beautiful. falls really nicely, I'm a size 0 so it is a little wider under the arms but thats the way it should look in my opinion (not meant to be snug and fitting). Even the length is just nice, Im tiny, only 153cm. But once the belt is on, it raises the length a little to give the top part a little more body and room to fold - its perfect! im SO happy i got this! Thank you Shopbop!

Sad Face
If only this dress was fitted properly. It is bulky and the fabric falls funny when you put the belt on. It is a beautiful color and in the picture it looks perfect-- in person, not so much. I am 5'7 and about 125lbs. It fit me like a sack of potatoes. I purchased the small. I would try the x-small, however, I wasn't that impressed with the quality of the material either.

too big
i'm 5 ft 4 and 110 lbs. i usually wear a size S in dresses, but this was MASSIVE. the back was sagging and it looked awful. i returned it and am currently waiting on the XS. the material was lovely though!

very delicate and feminine
This dress is very soft and feminine, and it's light pink in colour. Unlike the other reviewers, this dress fit on my perfectly. The wide obi belt makes this dress have shape, but I feel it can be worn without the belt. I'm 5'3" 105lbs and this hit just above the knees. I can't wait to wear this to a wedding.
