I'm 5'7.5" and pear-shaped with a relatively small bust compared to my hips (34B). I ordered this style and two other other L F dresses in Small. This dress and a babydoll style dress arrived in the mail today. It appears that this brand doesn't "vanity size," so you should definitely order according to the size chart on L F's site using your bust measurement. If you are busty or between sizes and can afford it, you might want to try ordering your size on the chart and the next size up. Lastly, while the prints are nice in person, I have to say that I'm really disappointed in the quality of both L F dresses. They are both unlined polyester with a slight sheen. Kind of cheap looking up close, and more like something you'd buy from a fast fashion retailer. Perhaps I just misread the description, but I thought this maxi dress was supposed to be lined??? If I had seen this dress in person, I wouldn't have spent any more than $30 on it! Maybe the brand pays fair wages to its seamstresses and has great labor standards. If not, I'm not sure why they're charging so much.
This dress has so many flaws but the funny thing is that the pattern is so stunning and it flows so beautifully with nice pockets I had to keep it . I am 5'8 average build at 140lbs and it is floor length which is nice. The sides do pucker out a bit and it is tricky to get on but with all that said I love this Dress... kinda ???
