I ordered this Jessica dress as a sample. The Jessica dress is sooooo beautiful! I am 5'2, and had to order a size 16 because of my bust size (DD). This dress is listed as a mini and other reviews stated it was longer than expected. For me, it was a perfect fit. If I was much taller, it would be pretty short on me, but considering my height, the length sits perfectly. I will more than likely return this sample and order a custom size since (for me) the waist needs to be taken in just a little to get the hourglass shape that the picture shows. The top fits really well, it has great structure built in to the dress, so while I will still need to wear a strapless bra with it (DD's remember?), the dress has no problem sitting where it needs to be up top. It also has small clear sticky piping all around the inside of the top to help keep it in place. NICE! It's very flowy and perfect for the outside, summer, Texas wedding - and looks great with my boots! For me, this dress is flattering and helps conceal some of my not-so-lovely-post-baby rolls on my tummy without feeling completely constricted - or feeling like I cant sit down all night.
