I want so much to love this dress. It's a nice fabric and in navy it's really classy despite the short length. The problem is fit. I am petite and toned with a small waist, small to average curves, not totally straight up and down. I sized up to a 4 (I am XS in A&O tops, and 0/XS in most other brands usually) and still the bottom felt snug (and I am not even a bit pear-shaped, I am quite balanced). I was afraid I would rip the bottom of the dress when I took it off. And in size 4, the top part is a little loose around the shoulders. To get the top to fit right, the bottom would be way too tight. The arms are stretch and comfortable. The chiffon ruching in the front bottom doesn't lie flat on one side, there seems to be a little extra fabric there. If the fit had been right I would have kept the dress for sure. So disappointed to return.
