Normally I can at least wear a medium, albeit a bit snug, but since I prefer loose clothing, I go with large. That’s the size I purchased this dress in, and I had worked up such a sweat by the time I got it on, I had to wonder if I would be able to remove it. It fit ok in the waist, and it flares at the hips, but along the bust it was tight, and across the shoulders, it was so snug, I could barely lift my arms to take a picture.
It’s SO cute. The fabric is excellent quality, and it does have some stretch to it, but it’s a very firm stretch. It provides a lot of control and smooths things out. The high-low skirt is a cute feature. Quality overall is very nice, stitching, hems, seams, everything is exceptional. However, the site states that a large should fit a bust of 38-39, and mine is 36, so it should have fit. But, in this case, I really should have gone up to an XL.
