What a lovely fit. I have quite broad shoulders so not keen on fitted sleeves hence my choice of this dress. It has a lovely swing and makes you feel very feminine. I'm 5ft 8 inches tall and the longest part of this dress is mid calf, the shortest part is below my knee. It has a lovely loose fit round the middle so covers lumps and bumps.
I think you need to be quite tall for this dress over 5'6" and it is a bit shapeless. I ordered size 20 but it drowned me. I ordered another size 20 fitted dress which was perfect. Maybe it's supposed to be very big.
The cut of this dress is excellent and it hangs beautifully. The overall shape and the waterfall effect at the front are very flattering and effectively hide my less than flat tum! I gave it 4 stars only because the navy is so dark it's almost black.
