I really wanted to like this dress, but the cut was just so off. I got a size up thinking that the fit would be better if it was a bit looser, but all the measurements seemed wrong. The arm holes were so big that the fabric was always either folding in on itself or sticking right out. And then the midsection was quite a bit tighter than I expected. So I ended up looking frumpy and squeezed all at the same time. I have an hourglass figure--so maybe it's just not the right style for my frame. This dress would probably look amazing on someone with more of a triangle shape--with nice broad shoulders and a slimmer waist than what I'm working with.
