Tight, warm, and a bit itchy
I got the XS (I am 5'3", and my measurements are 32-24-32), and I had no problems with sizing; the dress wasn't too long or short, and it was definitely form-fitting. However, if you don't have a bangin' body that you're absolutely comfortable in, it may be a little too unforgiving. I could see my rib bones protruding through the fabric, which I didn't care for. The fabric is also a wee bit itchy. Furthermore, as an Asian woman with yellow undertones, the color did not flatter me at all. I envy those who can pull it off!

Hourglass shape
The thing I like the most about this dress is how it cinches your waist and poofs out the back, giving my flat bottom more curvature. I tried the 0 first, found it wayyyy too tight in the waist (I have a 26 inch waist), and ultimately went with the 1. The top part is rather big for a small-chested girl like me, and the length is a little longer than I'd like (I'm 5'3"), but for the shape-enhancing qualities alone, I'll keep it.

Can I make this work?
The Good: The sleeves are absolutely gorgeous. So delicate and pretty. The size 0 is also a good length for me at 5'3". The Bad: I don't have much up top, so the bust cups gaped a lot. I'm debating whether or not I should try to hold them down with garment tape. Also, if you have a little belly, this dress will emphasize it.

Great-Aunt's Thrift Store Dress
I was appalled by this dress. Seriously. I have never loathed an article of clothing more. First and foremost, in person, the polyester fabric looks ever cheaper, and once you add the sequins, it starts to feel a lot like a bad vintage dress. But the worst part was the bust with the built in corset under the sequins part. Two words: SO TIGHT. I am a small chested gal (34A), and I got the size 2, and even that was like a tourniquet across my chest. I don't know who could find this comfortable. I even had trouble getting it off just cuz of the bust part! By the end, I was almost crying, trying to get this nightmare off of me. I'll never buy from this designer again.

Overwhelmed me
I am 5'3" and found the XS overpowered my petite frame (like a little kid playing dress up). The sleeves were also kind of itchy. Not for me.

Not for me
The skirt was too heavy for my liking, and it didn't do my figure any favors. I am 5'3, 105 lbs, and I tend to carry more weight in my waistline. Though well made, the skirt emphasized my pooch. Also, I got the smallest size, and it still moved around a bit.

you get what you paid for
These look okay on. They're a bit heavy on. Mine had a stitch(?) or piece of leather that really cut into the side of my foot. Will be returning.
