Rated 4 out of 5Â by chrismos Fun pattern, zipper issues
Wore this for a few hours on a very hot day and it was cool and comfy - would probably be keeping it but I seem to literally be allergic to it!
The back zipper sits right on a bony part of my neck and some combination of the location and the metal of the zipper gave me a really bad reaction. I got a rash that basically looked like I had a zipper imprint on my skin, and it lasted for more than a week. Not painful, but obviously not awesome.
Anyway, besides that it is a cute dress; size 6 fit me perfectly around the arm holes/shoulders and was a bit big in body and skirt (this is typical for me as I have broader shoulders).
I would say also that the waist tends to be high, which doesn't yield a super flattering silhouette. I wore a belt and kept having to adjust it to have it hit me at my waist rather than my ribs.

I ordered this in my regular size 10 and I was swimming in it. I think that a size 6 or even a 4 would have been the correct size for this dress (and I've *never* even been close to wearing those sizes).
The arms holes gaped and the dress created a very unflattering silhouette with all of the extra fabric hanging over the elastic waist. I felt very dumpy in the dress.
As well, I tested the elastic waist and I could stretch it out at least an additional foot from my body.
The fabric is quite lovely and it was sewn very well. If will work for you if you size waaaaaay down.

I've been watching this dress online for awhile. Unfortunately the colors are bolder in person. The tag on the bag read "ethnic motif". The motif on the web stated "neutral motif." Perhaps they sent the wrong color. I have a normal bmi, but the arm holes were uncomfortably tight. Finally, the waist location was awkward. It hit somewhere between my navel and under the breasts, which made me look pregnant. Not flattering
