UPDATE: The seller reached out to me after I returned the item to see how they could make my experience better and they actually sent me a size smaller and in the royal blue color. The smaller size looks much more like a dress/less boxy and the blue color takes away the judge costume effect. THANK YOU for reaching out and making this a good experience overall.
Original Post: This looked so cute on others review photos and I ordered it for a friend's birthday party. It is excellent quality material and looks like item description. However, I am 5'3, busty and about 140 pounds and this was a horrible fit. It was shapeless and boxy in the body with no allusion to the fact that I have a curvy body. And the sleeves had so much material it looked clownish on me. I think the black color also with how it fit literally made me look like a judge in a court room. Two stars for the high quality and material. But do not purchase if you have a body type like me! You'll just end up returning it.
I bought 7 different colors. They are beautiful. I'm 5 2" 180 I got the large because I'm losing weight. It fits a little tight and a inch above my knees. I would recommend someone that is my size to get the xl.
For reference I'm 140lbs and ordered a medium. It's comfortable and I like that it is not too short. But it's a loose dress. Something you can wear if you're in the mood for a buffet date. Lol! It's nice to pair with a gold sandals like the one Im wearing.. Im going to return the medium and order a small, may be I'll love the fit
I usually wear a size 10 or medium (36C and 5'6"). I ordered a LARGE because I was afraid of the hip meaurements listed. I was pleasantly surprised when the pink dress arrived. It does hold wrinkles and I've had to iron it in order to get the wrinkles out, but I like it. It's thin and the material isn't the greatest, but if you are looking for something cool in the summertime and a great price, then I would get one. I re-ordered the black in a medium just to see how that one fits. The large hits just right above my knee......... hopefully the medium won't be too short.
The fabric is not chiffon, it's heavier polyester. Fits true to size around the chest, but the sleeves fit weird around the armpits. The bottom of the dress does not really flare out as in the picture, it's tight around the hips. I ordered my true size L so perhaps 2 sizes up would look loose around the hips but then the chest wouldn't fit right. Very disappointed that it does not look like the photo. Also, I'm only 5'3" and still it was too short.
