Super cute but not for pears
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I fell in love with the dress when I saw it on the website because it has a chic, arty vibe. And it does have that vibe in person. As previous users have mentioned, some of the seams are a bit (purposely) frayed, but I liked that.
I am all over the board when it comes to sizing (usually a 10 but sometimes an 8 or a 12 depending on the cut of the garment) but I went with a medium because of the reviews here. The top fit fine, and maybe even was a little loose, but the bottom was tight across my hips/upper thighs. So much so that it looked like I was wearing two pieces - a blousy top and a too tight skirt. And maybe I could have gotten away with that if it was not for the pockets - the tightness in the hip area made them stretch open.
I rated this as being true to size, but the top definitely ran big and the bottom was true to size or a bit smaller.
I was bummed it didn't work out for me because it is a cute dress.
