Great dress but has issues

Reviewed by ms. gwendolyn from Dayton on Thursday, August 8, 2013
I got this in a size 12 because it said "classic fit" and a lot of this designers stuff runs big. First it's probably a bit more fitted just because of the way it's designed than to try to call it "classic" so I'm returning it for a size 14... yes, I like it well enough to GET IT AGAIN! I'm a 5'4", 168 lb evenly proportioned person. WOULD NOT GET IF YOU HAVE A "PAUNCHY" TUMMY BECAUSE THIS DRESS tells no lies. Also had problems with the "lace" because it's more of a big eyelet and the zipper sipped through it a couple of times and got tangled up almost to the point of tearing the material at one point. Just have to patiently untangle. Be careful when putting on too and I found that stepping into feet first worked better than pulling over head to manage the cami straps. Also, watch that cami as it can slip down pretty low, threatening to expose the "girls". Don't know if that will be a bigger problem with the looser 14 or not. May just sew the straps in place rather than risk slippage. The pink color is fun and complimentary to blue eyes and reddish blonde hair as it's a happy fruit punch color. Overall fun dress that I hope will work for me in the long run..
