This is a beautiful dress and it appears to be of very high quality. The dress fits true to size. The top has some stretch to it so I can see how girls with smallish busts may need to have this taken in a wee bit. On the other hand the stretch is nice in that it will fit larger busted girls like me. I'm 5'10 so if this dress were any shorter it would not have worked.
