I ended up not wearing this dress, but it is very pretty. The colors are a little bit more muted (there's more gray than you can see in the picture), but it's still a great pattern. I usually wear a 4 or 6. I only got the 6 in this dress and probably would have worn it had I gotten the 4. It felt a little too bulky up top with my padded strapless bra, but without it, it was too baggy (I'm a 34C). It probably would've also been more flattering if it were more fitted. Where the band fit on the 6, made me look too boxy. It's also worth noting that the measurements listed here are wrong. I was concerned, because 35" would fall way past the knee, but a fit specialist measured the dress in the warehouse and said the 4 was 24.5" and the 6 was 25.5". Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the dress too short. It fell a little past midthigh on me.
