This dress is very flattering, once you find the right size. My "real" dress hasn't arrived yet, but I thought I'd give a review of the sample/fitting of this dress first. You'll see in my photo that I've highlighted my measurements. ~43 hips, ~41.5 bust, and what I think I measured correctly ~38 waist. I am usually a size 12, sometimes a 10 depending on the fabric etc. But based on measurements I should range anywhere between an A12 or A18.
Azazie customer service will tell you to go with the A18 and get it tailored down, as they told me. But my advice is to go where they mostly overlap. I tried on an A16 and it was WAYY too big, I had about 3 inches everywhere that would have needed to be cut down and it was really long on my 5'5'' stature. I then ordered an A14 sample and it fit like a glove.
I was told you could order custom measurement sizes, but based on my experience of measuring myself....I would have had extremely weird proportions and would have had to get it it tailored to fit anyway. Especially since you can't return the dress if you get it custom made with your measurements. I am REALLY glad they have sample dresses to try on for $10/piece. I still will need the shoulder piece to get shortened when it arrives, but overall I can't wait for the dress to get here!
