I ordered this dress as a sample and actually got each of the three dresses in three different sizes to test the fit and measurements of the styles and even their fabrics. Since this dress didn't have any stretch, I got an A4 of this style (other sample dresses was the Leah in A0 and Hazel in A2) just to play it safe in case the fabric offered no give and in case I wanted to wear a bra with it and see if it would have the extra room allowance for such. This style was by far the most conservative out of the three and felt the most "traditional" in terms of what you may typically think when it comes to bridal party wear. Obviously with the size being A4, it did hang loose on my frame, I have no doubt that if my size was available in stock for the sample, the fit would have been spot on. When I was originally choosing samples, this was one of my top contenders, but after trying it on, it lost a bit of sparkle in my eyes, the dress wasn't unflattering by any means, just a bit more simple and I felt a bit dated in it compared to the other styles. I did like the skirt, which from past reviews I learned the side flaps are just overlay pieces rather than just a very full skirt with two long darts/pleats. This added a slight fun touch to the dress, but out of the three styles I got, the pockets on this were very shallow in comparison. I inserted my phone to test and the top corner of my phone peaked through the opening and if I were to angle my phone in diagonally, there's no way it would have been able to stay in that position and remain fully hidden.
