I got this dress on a whim, and I'm glad I did! The colors are really beautiful (just like in the pictures online). I am a bit curvy- broad shoulders and hips- I'm usually a 4/6/small in dresses, but I decided to get a medium, thinking it might run small. I was right- it's a bit narrower through the hips than I'm used to. The cut is just slightly a-line, though, and the advantage of the side ties (which I love) is that you can cinch the sides all the way in & hike the dress up a bit- thus accommodating wider hips. Overall I love this dress- beautiful, lightweight fabric, lined throughout, stretched just enough in the hip area, and the boho details are really lovely (lace, delicate straps, gorgeous cut on the top). If you're hesitant, order up a size- the design of the dress allows for a little leeway!
