good but not amazing
The arms are a little wide, so I always pull them up. I got a medium but could have got a small, it just depends on how you want it to fit.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

too narrow
These are cute but way too narrow! I am usually an 8 to 8.5, have average width feet but the sides of my feet bulged out the side... I could easily go to a 9 or 9.5. They also also show the beginning of the toes which is a pet hate for me. Also slightly darker than pictured. However I didn't find that they felt uncomfortable like the other reviewer said - they feel like they will give a little and mould to your feet (just size up a full size). Still deciding whether to exchange for a larger size or just return them..
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Not so great
This wasn't very flattering on me. I am a pear shape but usually maxi dresses flatter my curves, however this made my thighs look even bigger, and the material around the middle reminded me of a flabby stomach. Based on the other review, I sized down from my usual medium to a small, and it was still a little big. The picture shows rouging around the torso, however my dress had a lot more excess material and didn't have the same 'pulling' effect. I think this dress would have fallen better if it was made from different material. This would probably look better on someone with small hips/thighs because the rouging adds weight. Fabric doesn't have much stretch retention...

the waist isn't so bad!
I ordered the purple and the colour is just as pictured! The fabric is quite thick and very stretch so when the other reviewers say it is not form fitting they must have a size too big because the material has a lot of resistence - it doesn't seem like it will go baggy or stretch out as many jersey dresses do. Yes the waist runs large, but my hips are quite big so if i pull the dress up a little instead of pulling it down tight, it bunches nicely around the waist. This looks better in the length aswell because I'm 5"5 and it hits my mid-calf if I pull it all the way down. It is super flattering on the chest.

Very nice but..
As all other reviews have said, these are very flattering. This is because the material is quite a thick twill that is a little stiff but still stretchy. This is great if you're curvy like me as it holds everything in and hugs your bum without squashing it (many skinny jeans do this for me!). i ordered the navy and the colour is very nice, the material is obviously good quality and i bet the red would look really nice in this fabric. The only problem is that it is not a true skinny cut, in that it kind of goes straight down from your thighs instead of hugging your knees. So while the top half fits great, there is a little extra material around my knees and it didn't hug my calves. I just would have preferred something to create a nicer silhouette to slim my legs instead of adding extra bulk. You can see it in the picture that the knees aren't tight, which probably suits the long lean figure better. However this is only a slight detail! Also I will have to buy a lint brush!
