This dress looks nice on the model in the pic but I think its the angle and the model's height. I am 5'7" (140 lbs - typically a size 6 in FC) and the dress was longer than it appears. Also the material is tough and cheesy. There were a few strings hanging out on mine also, showing poor stitch quality. The chest area has a pleated, "bubbly" fit, not flattering for a smaller chest (I'm a B). The loose, flowy waist is stopped by a band for the ruffle at the bottom (which I originally didn't notice in the photo). Overall its not a good fit and does not flatter in any way. I even tried belting it and the weird fit doesn't work with a belt. I imagine it may be better as a mini on taller women like the model in the photo.
