I'm short and it fit perfectly!
So all the comments say to not buy if you are under about 5"6. Well I am 5"2 about 120 lb and decided to ignore the comments because I loved the dress so much. I got an XS and It fits perfectly!! The only difference is that the design that starts on the waist starts on my hips, and it is a little past floor length (nothing a nice pair of heels can't fix). I also actually find it even looks more flattering with the design starting at the hips because it makes you look much lengthier (ironically). Also, I'm not really sure how this turned out, but the back actually didn't even go much lower than it is in the photo. No need to worry about your behind peeping out. For some other notes, the fabric is so soft and light! Also in the photo the neckless covers the neck pattern, but it is beautiful! In all, this dress is eloquent and amazingly comfortable. I highly recommend it, especially to you fellow shorties out there!
First, I must say this is probably one of my favorite dresses ever. The material is so soft and so well made. Even prettier in person. I love it. If you are over 5.5 or taller please don't hesitate, you'll love as well. I'm 5.7 and it fits perfect. :)
This dress is absolutely stunning! I saw it online then went into the store praying they had one in stock. They did!! I got the XS and it fit like a glove. I usually wear a size small in FP, but this fit perfectly. I can't wait to wear it on an upcoming trip to NOLA. It's a show stopper!
I ordered this in the Cranberry color in an XS (reference 5'6" 122 lbs, 34c. This dress is typical NR cozy fabric and hugs every curve. That being said because of the pattern it is very slimming and I adore it! I can't wait until it gets slightly warmer :) I do not wear a bra with it because i like the whole back being open but it would look good with a strappy back bra.
great for a tall person; not for petites
I couldn't wait to get this dress and when I received it, the pattern was just beautiful. However, due to the way the borders are sectioned off, if you are any way short, the tan part of the bodice falls too low; on me, it started at my waist, rather than just below my chest as shown on the model. The open back adds a sexy vibe, but it is a little roomy in this part and comes down very low- definitely more of a party/going out dress than a work piece unless you add a jacket or sweater to cover up the open back. It is also very long and requires altering if you are petite which could mean losing some of the tan border at the bottom of the dress. This would look great on someone 6 feet tall, but if you are short it doesn't fall in the right places. Sadly, I had to return it.
