"Five stars for the dress... sizing is difficult."

This dress is simply lovely! I bought a medium as per the size chart and it fit perfectly everywhere but was super tight through the bust (for reference, I wear a 38B bra). I ordered a large hoping it would fit through the bust and I could maybe take it in through the waste and hips, if needed. However, the large is huge everywhere. I?ll have to send both back.

The dress is very shear{ which was not written in the description) so I am uncomfortable wearing it, although it is well-made and very pretty.

My girl was over in India so I bought 'Geraniums' for her, sent it to her all nicely wrapped up! She loved the gift wrapping almost as much as the top. She looks really beautiful in it, it was like something you got for waaay more in a department store, and she said the fabric was really high quality! Thank you very much
