Just a tad small around the rib cage

I loved loved loved this dress. I'm soo short so it's rare that I can find something longer that doesn't drag on the floor or hit me mid calf which is super unflattering on me. I tried this on with no bra and it fit my boobs and bottom half perfectly. (I have a large butt, athletic legs and small waist) The only problem was the button right under my boobs buckled and left a tiny gap which didn't look good. Because thats the only spot I think the medium would be way too big. I'm going to go lose 2 pounds and re-rent this!

Comfy dress for Luau party

I grabbed this dress for a luau party. It fit the theme perfectly! Only issue is that it's very tight around the ribs and chest but also pretty long. Straps are adjustable, which helps. I tried on XS in store and that was way too tight - couldn't even button. Definitely size up but be prepared for some extra fabric in the length.

Runs small in chest; size up if larger chested

Wish it fit but it was too much of a boob situation for me with a larger chest.

Awful fit.

I should have paid more attention to the reviews - the most I'll fitting dress I've ever tried on. I run small on top so I thought I would be fine- could barely button it around the bra line. Also the fabric looked cheap. Waste of a rental.

Very tight on chest

Loved the cut and quality, but unfortunately the fit was too tight in the chest area that I couldn't even button it without my boobs falling over.

Cute for work or date

It fit pretty well. The buttons do gape so I had to use a safety pin on the top one, but loved the flowyness of the skirt yet tightness in the bosom.

Didn't wear

I intended to wear this for a summer day party. The fit was odd and even though the straps were adjustable, the top was still too large for me. Cute fabric though and I did like the asymmetrical hem.

Runs small in bust

I usually wear an XS or S. The XS and Small both fit in the waist But, the bust area is so small if you're anything larger than a B cup, size up! I couldn't even wear the small (I'm a 32C/D)

cute dress, but SUPER small

I am a solid Medium and I could not even button this dress past my waist. I am so sad, I really liked the print and material.

So pretty, but did not fit!

This dress is gorgeous, it fit the lower half of my body, but I couldn't close the button around my chest even though I am very small chested. Size up!

Didn't get to wear this beautiful dress because it didn't fit :(

I was really sad when I tried to put this on and it didn't fit my chest very well. I ordered up a size and it still pressed my chest in. I'll definitely try to get this in a size large though because the material i gorgeous and it's such a fun print. Was really looking forward to wearing this in Florida :)

Chest runs really small. Otherwise cute.

Chest runs really small. I'm a 36b and could even button the medium at the chest. Otherwise it seemed to fit true to size and was cute.

Adorable and comfortable!

A friend of mine rented the XS the week prior to me and let me try it on. The XS was way too small in the chest. I couldn't even button it. I ordered a small the following week and it fit much better. I did end up pinning the button in the center of the chest because it gaped a little bit. It was also a bit long. Heels were a must. I loved the dress and received lots of compliments!

I couldn't come close to buttoning the top buttons. I'm small on top and it fit everywhere else.

Very small across the chest

Love the pattern on the dress and so badly wanted it to work out but neither the S or M fit right. In the small, it was so tight across the chest that even without a bra I could barely get it buttoned and then the buttons pulled across my rib cage. The M had a little more space but when I tightened the straps to get the top in the right spot the buttons started pulling again. Despite being looser in the rib area, the buttons still gapped. It is almost as if the buttons were not lined up correctly. The dress also didn't seem to be the best quality as there were tiny threads loose at every button hole.

This dress is poorly made -- the bust area would not close.

I am a size 4-6 so the medium should've had plenty of room. It wouldn't even close in the bust area. Save yourself the time and do not rent this dress.

So small! Couldn't button

My size in dresses is often XS, but this dress was far too small to button across my (relatively small) chest.

Pretty fabric but awkward fit

This dress is super slim fitting and the material has no give. It buttons up the front so would work well for someone with a small and narrow frame only. I also think it's better suited for tall girls given the flow of the skirt and length. Wish there had been reviews before I rented and I would have known to avoid!

small on the top very forgiving on the bottom for shorty gals with large hips

Gorgeous dress, an perfect length (MR) for a shorter person with big hips (5'1'', 150-160 lbs, carry weight on hips), and even though I could close all the buttons the center one right on top of my ribcage would stretch so much I would have needed a belt to hide that it didnt fit well there. I'm a large B-cup, small C cup on a 34 band so it's not that I have a large chest. If you're a 32 band it will probably fit your ribcage but beware it's not for busty gals.

Love the overall idea of this

Also wish I read the other reviews on this. Although my bust is teeny, the S was still too tight around the ribcage for me. I did not have a problem with the quality, I think it's nice and flattering, but super bummed being too tight up top. I may try a Medium and see how that works. Why don't they make these dresses with some stretch!?
