Flapper Dress Not For Hippys
Thanks to the other reviewers, I had ordered it knowing it would be big, but I wasn't expecting shapeless. I'm 34-29-36 and got a medium in black - I'm on the fence about returning it. There are a few comfortable inches around the hips, but the waist is huge! It looks more like a flapper dress on me and plus since I have wide hips, the chiffon flare on either side just makes my hips look slightly disproportionalty wider. I love the floaty chiffon and the style of the sleeves though. I reccommend for someone with a similar shape to me, to wear a wrap or a loose belt for definition and detail or carry a clutch so you can have an excuse to place your arms close to your waist.Well, it's good to wear to parties and buffets where there'll be lots of food!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this dress, but...
This dress is beautiful and ooooh, soooo, feminine. In a world of unisex clothing, this piece is a very welcome change. However, the sizing is COMPLETELY off. I bought all four colours in a small (XS and S are my usual sizes. Curious, I never saw it available in an XS.), but the fit is HUGE ! These SMALLS are, at least, two to three sizes too big ! I'll have to spend more money to have them altered. Ms. Gilman, HELP! I do not want to send them back. Can you design an affordable, matching, elastisized, 3 inch wide, sash, so this dress can give shape to the figure. A simple ribbon will slip and slide out of place. Please correct sizing on this garment. Precious dollars were spent on taxes and shipping. The gorgeous colours and chiffon can't make up for the extra money needed for alterations. To potential buyers, don't take a chance on this one, however tempted (especially if you are a small size). Total cost is just too much.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pretty but big
from West Vancouver
I have to agree with other reviewers. I really wanted the black but it sold out quickly, so tried the printed one in 2 sizes - both were too big. Style is cute, so if you normally take a large or extra large you might be good with a small or medium. Don't quite get why the inside of the sleeve (that shows) is bonded with a whitish colour - would be better transparent.

One size too big
So disappointed when arrived. Was too big and I bought regular size. Must size down. Please advise during show so money is not wasted. Also for a tall gal, just too much fabric.
