With dresses, I range in different sizes (due to my broad shoulders), so I went ahead and bought the biggest size just to be safe. I was not disappointed what so ever. It fits my shoulders perfectly with lots of moving space. The waist isn't as cinched as it is in the picture but that's nothing a cute brown belt can't fix! It's also a little short but tights can fix that. I cannot wait till winter time so I can wear this! It is absolutely stunning and looks exactly like the picture .
