Amazing cut
I'm 36C , 5' 4", and about 130 lbs, and got size Small and it couldn't fit better. I almost always have a bad time with the chest fitting with a V-neck style or triangle top style with a 36C chest, but this covers well. The only really bad thing aobut this dress is that the 2 "V's" covering your bust are very loose, so if you wear this to an event where you will be sitting and bending and moving a lot, I think most people wouldn't feel comfortable unless they used fabric tape. But now that I say that, I see in the picture the model really has the top tied very high under her neck, so maybe it's possible to tie it up higher (?). If you're just standing most of the time, I don't find it problematic to keep me covered though. But, the cut of the dress is so gorgeous- it is cut and creased so that the flowy sides look exactly like the picture. Also, I was so pleased that at 5'4" the high cut in the front is short on me as pictured, which is what I wanted. Obviously high quality dress.

Beautiful nude color
I wear size 8 as smallest size in any shoe (open toed shoes, usually flip-flops) and I wear size 9.5 in largest of any shoe I have (enclosed boots etc). I went with these in an 8 despite many sites saying they run 1/2 size small, and the 8 fits great. I have one foot 1/2 size smaller than the other, so sometimes I have to size up. Sz 8 fit great. I wanted these for a nice sandal rather than a sloppier pair to throw on to wear to beach etc, so I wanted a closer fit rather than the next size up. They barely fit my larger foot, but they do fit without my foot hanging over, so I was very pleased. So, go with your normal size. They are very comfortable - not wide and sloppy, so if they're sold out in your size you'd be OK to go up 1 size. What I like so much about these is they have a nice rubber sole - not cheap flip-flop bottoms, but also not hard bottoms like most dressier flip-flops usually have when you try to get a dressier flop. Exactly what I was looking for !

Gorgeous !
Absolutely gorgeous !! So, so fun to wear with the ruffles. Nice material. The elastic on the top could be tighter to stay up better, but a simple sew will fix that. I am 36C, about 130 lbs, 5'4", and I tried on a petite by accident and it even fit, but I'm going with the Small since my chest isn't the smallest. Really, though, the way it is cut and fits, you could go up or down a size and it would fit fine. I'm so glad that I don't have to wear any shorts under it to look appropriate- I thought it would be extremely short. It is just above my knees in front and not too short on the sides, so I'm thrilled !! Under the drapey material over the chest area is a band of elastic on the top and a band of elastic under your chest, so... it is elastic on top and bottom of your chest. I want to cut off the drapey material- I like it better that way - i will have to sew some of the green material over the top elastic though because unfortunately that hidden elastic on top is white.

Darn- color not as pictured
The color is unfortunately not as pretty of a pink as pictured. It is a very deep pink. When I held the actual shoe up to my computer screen next to the picture of the shoe on the screen, the color appeared purplish. But, in my closet, when held against my purple shirt the shoe did not appear purplish at all. I held the shoe up against several of my pink items, and it is a much deeper pink than any of my pink clothes. Not the 'candy' looking pink shoe I was hoping for. For sizing: it definitely runs large. The smallest size I wear in any shoe is an 8, and these shoes in an 8.5 were sliding off of both feet. I wear a 9 or 9.5 in closed toe shoes and an 8.5 to 9 in most heels or dressier shoes, and an 8 in flip-flops. I will need to re-order in a size 8, but will wait for a sale since the color isn't just right. They are comfortable in the heel and at the front of the foot, and easy to walk in with the fuller heel (not a skinny heel).

Material not good
The material is thin and wrinkles easily, and is not soft. It is a thin textured material. Just feels very cheap. I returned it. The color is pretty - a little tiny bit more burnt umber orange than appears, but looks nice against tan skin. I'm 36 C, about 130 lbs, 5' 4", and the medium fit OK but a little big. I would have probably ordered the small if I had decided to keep it. I decided though that the material just felt so cheap and thin that it wasn't something I wanted to keep. The drawstring at the waist is nice- it really pulls together nicely and makes the dress look nice even if it is a little big on you. The gathering around the neck is really cute- - you would definitely want to wear your hair back with this dress so you can see the cute detail. Nice for summer since so thin if you don't mind textured not-so-soft material. The ruffle hem is really cute and just as pictured.

Just OK
I wasn't as impressed with these as the other reviewers. They are true to size. I just think for the price, if they had a zipper it would have made all the difference. They are pull on style and they are just sloppy and feel like thin rain boots. Especially since they are a little bit on the shiny side surprisingly. The color is beautiful and the bow is cute, and I love the pink lining, but you can't see it when wearing them !!! - Too bad. Although a bit baggy fit in the legs, still not able to turn down the top to show the pink if I wanted to. I honestly did feel like they felt rain boot-like though - a little tiny bit of a shine to them and a sloppy pull on style around the leg - just not worth the price at all. The foot fits nicely though and is not too narrow. So, I guess it just depends on what you like.

Color is very yellowish
Very disappointed. Color is very yellowed, similar to a white shirt that has been in an attic for years and has become yellowed. Do not like the color at all. Also, the material is extremely heavy. It would be much more practical, since it is short-sleeved, if it was a lightweight sweater dress. The heavy weight combined with short sleeves just isn't practical. I am 36C, 5' 4", about 130 lbs and the size medium was quite tight and uncomfortable. The only good thing about it is the length and the ruffle is cute. It's a good length for 5'4". Also, the material kept riding up in the back - I only wore the dress for about 2 minutes while trying it on at home, but yet the material kept riding up in the back and I kept having to pull it down. It was also cut shorter in the back than the front- probably just a fluke for this one dress only, but..... would not recommend at all.

Absolutely beautiful
I think if Shopbop had this top pictured from the back, it would be sold out. It is SO beautiful ! The fit is better than I had hoped for- a nice flowy romantic top without the hugeness and making you look bigger- -does not poof out a lot in the front or back. Just a nice cut and a nice flowy pattern. It is a super soft material that is very flowy and I love the way the sides are a little shorter so it looks so 'wavy' and beautiful from the side!! That really makes the top ! . I am 36C, about 135 lbs, athletic build, and a S/M fit fantastic. The color of the back is more of a light purple than pink, I would say. A beautiful color and looks like satin. The top is cut so that you would need a bra that sits a tad lower than a normal bra to cover the bra line. I mention that because I'm wearing this as a normal day top rather than a night top so will be wearing a bra. And, that's another good thing- it was not see-through so I could wear my tan bra. LOVE it.

Hudson never fails
Comfortable shorts as all Hudsons are- very stretchy and nice fit. Although I got the blue and did not like the color, and returned them. The blue seemed a stronger, deeper blue in person. The length is great and the fit is true to size if you are familiar with Hudson. I wear one size smaller in Hudsons than in other jeans, as most reviewers normally say. They do stretch out some as you wear, like all Hudsons. So, order a size down compared to what you would get in another brand, but true to size for Hudsons. I always wear 29 in Hudson jeans and the same size was great for their shorts also. I don't like tight jean shorts, so I was pleased that the same size worked fine for their shorts. I'm 5'4" about 135 lbs, athletic build. If you don't like the pocket hem sticking out, just a few stitches to shorten the hem will do- that is what I plan to do if I buy the red color since I didn't like the blue shade. They are great !

Horrible
I waited a long time for this to go on sale- really loved it in the picture. But, this is the worst fitting dress I've ever tried on. It is extremely low cut in the front, showing part of bra, and on the sides it is so low cut it is BELOW my bra ! Worst of all, it is HUGE. I'm 36C, 5'4", about 135 lbs and a medium was huge on me. I tried to pull it in to see what a smaller size would look like, but it is a straight cut dress so the small would still look very sloppy, as I was gripping about 3" of material of both sides of my body to imagine a smaller size and it was still a sloppy looking dress. It is quite a lot longer than pictured which I didn't like. The flounce hem is cute, but in areas where the flounce hem curls it shows the back of the fabric ! Terrible ! I'm so disappointed it wasn't the dress I waited so many months to get. It really is cut horribly- no shape at all and so low cut on sides and front- there is no way to alter this and make it work.
