Very comfy but not that striking
I usually wear a size 8 and I would have ordered M but for the fact that it wasn't available so I went for an L since I really wanted to try this dress. I ended up wearing another one I had ordered. The L was a little loose but depending on whether you like a more snug or a more comfy fit, you could go either way. I happen to like more snug body hugging fit so I didn't use it. The material is thick and the length is great for a tall person. It might overwhelm anybody under 5'8". I loved the shape and feel of the dress but I was greatly disappointed in the colors. The print is not as striking as the picture makes it seem. The colors looked much more subdued and dull and faded. Instead of sophisticated, high-end, unique, it felt more of an ordinary, girly and moderately priced dress. One would never guess this dress costs more than $80 bucks. It felt high-end when you put it on because of the quality of the materials and fit but if you just looked at me wearing it, it looked ordinary. I wouldn't get it again. I was very disappointed, in light of the prior rave reviews I had high expectations.
