This is a gorgeous, very nice quality dress, but it does run a tad small. I typically wear a size 8 in dresses, but went up to the 2XL in this, as I typically do when ordering from overseas. Most times I can get away with one size up, but this one fits just about perfect, so my recommendation is go up at least 2 sizes unless you want to wear this just a bit snug.
It’s a very heavy fabric and is pretty stiff when you get it, but it does soften up after washing. This gives a less formal, pressed to look to it. It’s still the style of dress that you can wear to a lot of different occasions, from work, to a fancy restaurant, to a casual backyard party. The skirt is very full and expertly pleated. You can wear the bow in front or back, I tried it both ways.
My measurements are 36D, 29, 36 for reference. I also stand just under 5′, so this runs a bit longer on me.
8 out of 10 due to the small size
