I normally get a size 14 from other manufactures but a I got my normal size 12 in this. Stretchy material which is great for bums and tums. No zip or button, just slips on easily. The cowl back looks great, not too deep, just right. It's a long dress with a little split (just below knee) on the left side. Hangs beautiful and it's better in real life.
I bought this because as a top heavy woman I have to have stretchy things over my top half, especially in dresses. The bottom half of this looks fine - the top stretches but I'm not that comfortable squeezing myself in. So this dress will look great on a normal figure. The material is nice and well lined so the glittery bits won't scratch. The pattern is quite forgiving too. I just wish the top had a v neck!
