Aside from all of this, the dress itself is beautiful and a great quality. As some other reviewers indicated, following the size chart and it should be accurate. The back of this dress is very unique itself, and which has prompted me to purchase this dress in the first place. It was sort of confusing at first on how to put the strap on, (I had to refer back to the picture online to figure out), but once it was properly in place, it fit very comfortably.
The colour I ordered was GRAPE - however, after looking at the colour chart again to compare what I received, it looks more like Fuchia. Nevertheless, although it wasn't my preferred colour selection, it's still a very nice colour on the dress.
The fit is true to size. I also find that if you have a small bust, you will need to double tape part of the dress (opposite to the strap) to keep it down in place and from not shifting, (I ordered a size 6 and have 32C bust but found that my right bust was almost shifting out of the dress). Also, because the zipper only goes half way up your back, it doesn't add any additional tension to the bust area or ribs.
Anyways, I would recommend this dress as a bridesmaid dress or special occasion. The price is competitive and you will be happy with the overall look, comfort, and quality.
