I am 5.7 ft 130 pounds. This dress is so cute and I was so excited to get it. But I had to return it. I ordered a M. I have a small chest (34 A/B) and the top portion of this dress did not have enough fabric for me. There was no way that I could wear a bra without it showing (either out of the top, or below through the cut outs). And stickys wouldn't work either because there was just not enough fabric to cover them. The bottom part of the dress fit well, so I didn't think that I could go down to a S. It's a really cute dress, so I hope it works better for others. Oh, and also, the fabric is almost like t-shirt material...don't get me wrong, had it fit property, I would have kept the dress, however, the price is a little ridiculous for the quality.
