Pretty dress, did not fit me at all . I was disappointed that I had such a hard time with all the sample dresses I ordered, since my measurements match a size 4 exactly, and I usually can pull dresses off the rack no problem. The dress (and all the ones I tried on) has a lot of structure through the torso, and it is made for someone with a narrow rib cage, big boobs, and a short torso. I'm long and straight (A-cups, muscle, and not much of a taper at the waist), and if I pulled the dress as tight as I could across my chest, there was an indecent gap between me and the structured cups (my friend dropped some large apples into the cups and it fit way better), but it was too narrow in the rib cage to zip by about 3". Going up a size would not have helped at all, since the cups were already too big to alter. I would have loved to find at least one dress from this company that didn't have scaffolding built in, since the scaffolding is clearly designed for ladies with a very different build.
