I wore this to a baby shower *for a sweet little lady, of course ;-)
We'll start with fit. The dress runs tts through the hips, but the top is extremely blouson, even more so than what's typical for me, anyway (I'm quite petite through the bust/waist). Ties at the waist help to minimize this problem, but I did have to fuss with the top quite a bit to get it how I wanted it. There is a hook-and-eye closure at the bust to help keep you modest- but it hit me a little too high to look "right." I used a safety pin instead. Straps are NOT adjustable, but oddly enough I didn't find this to be a big issue- just the occasional tug on the back of the skirt to keep those straps flat against my back.
The length was good on me (5'3", mid-thigh), so tall gals might proceed with caution.
The color is much brighter in person: more coral than baby pink. It looks lovely on a tan, though.
Overall, I like this dress a lot: it's comfortable, can be worn for many occasions, and fun to accessorize. A great choice for summer.
