Very flattering, thank goodness for backup sizes!
I ordered a small with a medium as a backup and wore the medium. The material is thick enough that it is warm and hides anything you want to hide and the waist is high enough to be able to wear tights, which was great! I'm short, so the length was great for me, hit mid thigh. But I found that waist was way too big on the medium (my natural waist, where it hit, is 26 in), and that if there had been no sleeves, I might have tried to wear the small. The sleeves were very tight and a little restricting on me, even in the bigger size since I have muscular arms. While the main fabric of the dress is pretty stretchy, the lace has a lot less give. The fact that the waist and midsection of the dress was loose was not distracting though, since it fit great everywhere else and my arms looked a lot smaller than they are with the lace!
