This is a very cute dress, but it fit weird. A size M had a lot of fabric in the sleeve/ skirt areas, & was too long on my 5'4 frame, yet with all this going on, the (zip up) bodice area was too tight. I am exchanging it for a L, and hopefully I won't be swallowed up in the excess fabric. My stomach pudge is a problem area for me, & I have 36/38 D breasts, but I can't image wearing a dress that is tight in the chest, & roomy everywhere else. The whole point of wearing dresses to me is feeling free & sexy in a garment that drapes over my body, forgiving in areas that need it, & showing glimpses of areas that don't.
