This is a beautiful dress and could be worn at any occasion. However, this is not a dress for my fellow big chested women. There is NO stretch at all to the fabric. I normally wear a size 12/large. However, I always order a XL when ordering clothes from amazon because I noticed that amazon clothes have tendency to run small. Unfortunately, since I am big chested and the dress has no stretch it just didn't look right on me. But, if you have a C cup or smaller, it should work for you.
I'm 5' 3 and weigh 180. my stomach is pouchy and I have full hips. The top fit perfectly, my bust is a 38C, but it was too snug around my stomach and butt so it did not hang like it should have. Otherwise, cute, material is nice.
This fits pretty well and is cute. There is a strange seam on the inside where the lining attaches that is visible and the darts on the front don't line up with my bust line with a cute necklace I think it will work for holiday parties.
I originally bought a large but it was too small in the chest. So I ordered an xl and it came as a large and it was ripped in the inside. Disappointed because I really like the look and feel of this dress
