This is such a unique dress and fits like a glove. The only small issue I had was the belt loops were not intact but that's not that big of a deal. The dress is super comfortable and can not wait to wear it.
I went by the size chart and the dress fits nicely, not too tight, but still form-fitting. The fabric is also kind of thick, so it'll keep a lady warm during the colder weather. Honestly, my only complaint and the reason why I took off a star is because the dress is much longer than shown in the photos. Now, I'm not short by any means (I'm 5'7" to be exact), so there's no reason why the dress should have been so long unless this batch was made differently than the one shown in the photos. I'm kind of disappointed by this because I was hoping that it would have been as short as it was in the photos and if the dress was going to be made longer, this difference should have been shown. If I had known that it was going to be this long, I wouldn't have bought it because I prefer my dresses to be shorter, I don't like long ones.
When I tried it on, the dress went way past my knees and ended at my calves. The one in the photos was just past knee-length. And yes, I do notice that the lengths are different in the size chart, but I can't imagine that three inches should make that huge of a difference in length.
I like this enough that I plan to keep it, but it's probably not going to get worn more than once or twice.
Is there anything else that needs to be said? This dress took my breath away the moment I laid eyes on it and when I finally got my hands on it, it did NOT disappoint! It's beautiful and while firmly constructed, it still has a bit of stretch that allowed me to size down from the posted size chart. I'm 5'5, 43(32H)-32-43 and an XL fit me perfectly and comfortably.
