25Elise T.Elise T.I'm normally a Target sized 12 and was urged to order the 16 by an online rep based on my measurements. Too big! But it was also cut very weird. I have an hourglass figure and the waist in the dress is low...in addition there was beading in the bodice but it wasn't flat - the beads were for the flower's stamens and protruded from the dress. Probably better suited for a woman with a a similar waist and hip measurement but with boobs. Women with thick hips, beware (and mine aren't even that thick!). I'm 5'9" and the dress was too long if I wanted to wear flats but perfect for those that wear heels! It's fairly modest but the high slit gives it a youthful edge. I was planning on wearing it to both my brother's wedding and my son's Bar Mitzvah.
