Great dress for graduation.
I am 5"2 and 145 pounds, pear shaped. I wear a small in shirts and an 8 in pants. This dress fit nicely, but did ride up a lot when sitting. I had to sit with the graduation program covering my legs. Luckily I also ended up wearing it with black tights and a white jacket because it was so cold in Michigan. I thought wearing it with tights might look a little weird, but it was fine and I was warm and happy! I found it pretty tight in the arms/shoulders. Maybe I should have worn the 8, but I was worried there would have been too much fabric in the middle because of the pockets. Overall, I really liked the dress- I think the pattern was beautiful and not overwhelming. I would rent this again, I think it would be a cute day wedding dress, even a spring rehearsal dinner, brunch party etc. The best part is that it hides any a not so flat tummy!
