I’m actually having the opposite problem of a lot of other reviewers, where the bust of this dress was way too loose. I ordered an XS and the bust area was fit for a Larger size breast. I am 105lbs and a 28D and it was gaping in the armpits and the chest. So sad I had to send it back because it was outstanding quality and so elegant.
First off, I adore the clothes on here, they’re so lovely, and I was so excited to see that this dress came in a larger size, but I have a wide rib cage and it doesn’t fit me. I’m keeping in the hope that I can alter it somehow, but I just have to say how utterly heartbreaking it is to find beautiful clothes in exactly my style, and then see that none of the sizes include me. Thank goddess I’ve been through enough therapy to know not to let it get to me too much, but I hope Simple Retro will see this and consider including all body sizes and types when making their gorgeous clothing. Is it so much to ask for a world where women’s bodies are all respected? I cried myself to sleep the night I got this dress.
Quality of the dress is outstanding. I am 5’5”, 112lbs, 34A, size M fits perfectly!!
So, unlike the other reviewers, I'm a 34A and find that the medium in this fits me perfectly! Because of the gathering at the waist, I don't have to "hold in my stomach" to look like the models. It's just comfy and flattering. Nice that there is an option for us smaller busted women that can't fill out average/larger "tops". The lace, fabric, cut, buttons - all very high quality.
I love the quality of this dress and it looks beautiful, until you get up to my chest and I can barely close the dress. I am a 36 C bra size, 117 lbs and I ordered a small because that is what I always order. I was surprised that the chest did not fit and I will have to see if I can get it altered by a tailor. I even removed my bra and tried to close it like that, but it was still difficult and you can see where the buttons are pulling away from each other when I close it. Anyone can see that it does not fit and it is not flattering.
