"This dress is obviously pinned back in the photos because it is one of the most unflattering dresses I've tried on. The waist portion hangs straight down from the chest making you look as if you have a large girth. The waist section is very loose fitting yet the chest is just right. I'm 36-29-36 size 8, mostly lg in FP. I bought a lg and think the medium would be too tight in the chest. The material is impractical. In Florida its too hot in the warm months and not ideal during the cold months even with something underneath. Seems as if there would be a few months of ideal weather to wear this dress."
"Not the bulky crochet of late. A much finer knit.The piece is a crochet though -a little weighty- I got a medium length and fit like model except 2 or so inches longer on me. I am 5 ft 6 in. Could have done the small."
