Just 'okay'
I was really looking forward to seeing this dress on because I saw that the 'blush-coloured' dress in exactly the same style by Parker had such good reviews, but I was really disappointed when I received it! The material didn't feel like anything special nor did the dress. The top part of the dress has little support and it makes you look flat! I thought the sweetheart neckline would have been more flattering. It will be nice for a summer day, but I thought it would look a little more fabulous....bummer.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Expected to be more form-fitted
I love the pattern and overall shape of this dress - it's also very comfortable to wear. The dress was unfortunately larger than expected and will need some alterations. The thing that was most disappointing is that the dress was advertised as having "boning" and "padding", so I thought the top would be form-fitted and it's unfortunately not. Pairing it with a thick black belt is cute and holds up the dress a bit better. I think I would have liked this dress better if I went 1-2 sizes smaller!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Love the concept, but a couple of flaws
I'm about 5'5 and 125 lbs and I got the size small, which fits everywhere but the chest. I'm a B34 and I'm not thrilled with the way the wire cuts a bit across my boobs, rather than going under them. It would have been nice to know exactly how this would fit ahead of time. Also, the dress is rather long, so it will need to be altered. The dress is super flattering on - the horizontal lines are very slimming as another reviewer described. I will still wear it, I just think it could fit a bit better.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

LOVE THIS FIND!!
This dress is true to size and hugs in all of the right places. I'm about 5'5 and 125 lbs - so I have a few more curves than the model in the picture.....I'm usually about a size 4 and I ordered the size 1, which is perfect. There's probably even a little bit of extra room, so it's really comfortable and not too form-hugging. I got the mauve colored dress- love it :-)
