I kept in mind that shopping online is generally pretty risky for clothing, since you can't see and feel the material and judge the fit and kept my expectations rather low. Regardless, I fell in love with the style of the dress and took the risk and as a fairly small and skinny person, the small size fit about how I expected it to (if a bit big in the chest, but having measured myself and checking the measurements, this was expected) and can be pulled in a little with the ribbon in the back. However, I'm only about 5'3 and the bottom of the dress comes dangerously close to my crotch (which I sewed a bit of a similar colour fabric to the lining to lengthen).The back does not have nearly the amount of loops shown in the picture to tie the ribbon on so there's a lot of extra ribbon just hanging around. The lace on the top part looks different but I think it's actually quite nice and the layers on the bottom are light and fluffy as expected. As for the fabric quality... it's almost not even worth mentioning. It's definitely not high quality but it's fine.
Overall, this dress is alright but I'm not sure I would recommend it at full price. Perhaps if you are a smaller person, willing to make a few alterations, and have a bit of money to spare, then this might suit you. Personally, I'm quite happy with it as I bought it for the design and colour of the dress more than anything, and that was at least quite accurate.
