better if you are tall

If your figure is like the model pictured this dress will look really nice on you. I am not tall and thin (5'1" #135) but I wanted a new black dress and decided to take a chance on this because I liked the "little bit different look" it offered. After reading reviews I ordered the large. Other reviewers are correct in that the material is heavy, literally, and also shows bulges. I would have probably been better off with the medium (no joke, I am very athletic and not all of me is fat). The dress is too big through the torso and doesn't show that I have a waist (hourglass figure). Need to look for some type of tie to pull the dress in at the waist by the seam. A thin belt didn't cut it. I will be wearing the dress with flats so it will work even though it is longer than I really prefer. By the way, I washed and dried the dress. It didn't shrink, unfortunately. Shipping fees are making me more hesitant to order from STP. It would be really helpful if reviewers offered their height and weight, when appropriate, for others to make a more informed decision. Just my opinion.
