The top of the dress is super cute/flattering/comfy, but the bottom does not fit like it does on the model at all... It's weirdly straight and stiff and the extra ruffle gives it an awkward shape. It's also really short (I'm 5'8" and got my standard Medium) so if I were to try and get it to puff out and look more flowy and natural it would flash everyone. The side ties are also an issue (though cute in theory), because if you have the tiniest amount of hip/curve and you pull the ties tight to fit your waist, it flares the skirt out at the sides which again looks super weird because it's so short. Wish I could return this.
