I was so excited to find this dress because I love a trumpet hem, but I was a bit disappointed when it arrived. I sized up so the dress would fit my hips. I was just going to take it in at the bust and waist. However the fabric is very stretchy so I had to take the dress in by about 2 inches even in the hips. Because the fabric is so thin and stretchy you don't get any support or structure and its hard to achieve a nice tight wiggle shape. I suggest sizing down to get that curve hugging power. The dress was poorly constructed; There was loose thread coming out of the seams, the bows are very flimsy, and the lining is anchored in one spot (front and center at the waist) so when you smooth the dress down it pulls and makes visible wrinkles. It's a good price and great design so If you are happy to alter it and wear a slip/shapewear it's worth the effort. I wore it on my birthday and received endless compliments.
Don't get me wrong this dress is absolutely beautiful. I brought it 4 days before my 21st birthday party. So when it arrived (having brought from Lindy Bop on many occasions) I didn't think that there would be any issues. Unfortunately, i ordered a size 8 which absolutely hung off of me around the waist and hips(My hips are 36" and my waist 26"). I had to still take it in by 3 inches!!! to achieve the tight fitted effect that I had hoped for. Secondly, I had to also alter the neckline as it doesn't sit very well and looked like it either needed to be higher or lower on the chest not stuck in between. Also had to stitch down the bows on the shoulder. I would never usually review something like this because actually I loved how the dress looked once i had altered it. Also I am a loyal customer and do feel bad for making these comments but this was just my experience with this dress.
