I fell in love with this dress when I saw it online. It just arrived and the fit is definitely unexpected. putting it on was an event! the hole for the head was extremely small (took me a few minutes just to get it on) and the hip section is extremely narrow. i am normally a size 0 in every brand and so i ordered the smallest size this was available in (US 2). i wouldn't size up in the dress, despite the issues mentioned, because the waist fit perfectly (actually there was excess material) and i would rather have it fit tighter rather than loose in that section. do not order this dress if you are a girl with hips (my hips measure 33" and I barely fit them in there!). pretty dress but i will need to have a zipper added to the side for easier wear.
