I wanted to like this dress. The concept and fabric are great, but the fit was not good for my size 8 athletic frame. Even though the small frame model looks cute wearing the dress in the photo, this dress may be for women with more curves than me. I think having a larger bust, hips and butt is what this dress needs. If you size down, the accompanying underslip which fits perfectly, will likely be too small. Also, I would have no problem wearing without the slip. The dress is not that thin.
