The past reviews made me feel when I ordered this dress that I was gambling... would it be too large? Too tight? I have a hippy hourglass figure. I was right on the cusp of M/L, and ordered an L. Turned out it was a perfect body skimming fit on my hips, but too large on my top. The top was baggy and looked sloppy. I was bummed. Then I remembered, I can sew. So, I pulled out my sewing machine and gently sewed up the side seams from the waist to the armhole. Now it fits perfectly. Yay! Hoping this will be a perfect travel dress. I have already worn it as a fun date/going-out-to-picnic dress.

If you have a wide waist/hip difference, you may need to take in the top unless you are also very busty (I'm busty too but apparently not enough for the Large size.)

Word to others: the red fabric is kind of thin. I cannot wear dark underwear or it shows through.
