I LOVE it! One of 2 items in my first LPD order so I read the reviews carefully to get a good idea about sizing. I didn't size down, just stuck to my usual Aussie dress size. It's not too big. I could have gone a size down but this is fine too and the waist might have sat a bit higher if I went down. SO you're okay either way but the wide flat seam line of the waist is really flattering sitting a tiny bit lower. The chest doesn't actually gape even though it's a cross over and the lining is good to have, both making it nicely modest. The sleeves are really pretty with ruffles and I dressed it Boho style with my hair out and tan knee length boots. I actually find the cut super feminine and pretty which helped me to feel confident when people looked at me (because it is way happy-inducing-bright). I used the sash belt to make a hair sash and it looked so fantastic I've done it heaps of times since even with jeans. So just get it if you're not sure, this one is perfect for mid season and very flattering whilst being fun and modest at the same time.
