I just love this dress. I put it on after taking it out of the package and walked over to get my husband’s opinion, and he said, “Fantastic!” without even being asked. I appreciate that it’s 100% cotton. The fabric has no stretch, but they thoughtfully stitched the waist gathers with elastic thread, so there is a little bit of give there. It’s pretty fitted in the bodice: the Small is about 34 inches in the bust. The waist measures 26-28 with the stretch in the gathers. The dress feels sturdy, and washes well, so far. I have not put it in the dryer, and the colors seem fast.
