"I would agree with the other reviews- this dress will only work if you have a very small frame. I'm 5'6 about 116lbs and the small fits great- I couldn't be happier with this dress- it is unbelievably comfortable, not too sheer and very versatile- so many compliments when wearing it! The pictures here don't do it justice- hate the shoes."

Review 2 for Folk Embroidered Dress
"I was so excited to get this dress for its unique features and design. But when I put it on, it made me look totally frumpy. I so wanted to wear it to dinner and the first thing my husband said was "your not going to wear that are you?" I purchased a Small and it is very roomy and not figure flattering. I don't think the XS would be any different. There seems to be a lot of material on the sides so it adds to the unflattering appearance. So disappointed... I will only wear around the house since I already tried to wash it to see if that would help with the way it laid on me. Maybe size down if you want to try this dress but it does not look like it does on the model with the way it lays on the body. I am 5'7" and 128 lbs but it makes me look pregnant with all the layers of material in front and on the sides."

Review 3 for Folk Embroidered Dress
Only good for petite frames
"I was excited about this dress however it was not flattering on me at all. I am a size AU10-12 which is around a US6-8 and this dress swamped me. I bought the size S. I am pretty curvy and the amount of material on the sides was too much for my frame that it accentuated my hips making them look enormous. Unless you are straight up and down....the skirt of this will not fall nicely and rest around your hips. Also, I am busty, so this dress billowed out and made me look larger than I am. I would suggest getting a size down if you have curves. I had expected the dress to be somewhat relaxed however the picture looks more sleeker on the model, perhaps this was pinned. Unfortunately will be returning this dress."
