I. REALLY LIKE. THIS. DRESS. I purchased it for a official event & cherished wearing it. It had been VERY comfortable and with some shapewear, all of the bumps were smoothed out. I got a lot of compliments the night I wore this particular dress. I have IN NO WAY received that many words of flattery in a dress prior to. I am 5"6' as well as 180 pounds and bought a large. Ideal length, prefect suit, and a very elegant looking dress.
