Much much more lovely than I expected, as other reviewers have said, it does run small so order a size up.

I'm a size 6. I bought clothes from Next of size 6 or Miss Selfridge sometimes size 4, they all fit loosely. So I bought a size 6 of this dress. It fits very tight, which actually looks really nice in pictures standing up. The only problem is that it's so tight on the hips that I couldn't sit down with the dress, which made it half way of going out I had to go back home to change to another dress with which I can sit down with. So, be aware, size 6 girls, better choose a size 8 just to be safe. Another thing is, as said from last reviewer, the flowers are on the waist, which looks much different from this picture.

The actual and true size chart for this specific model is here http://www.blueriverlily.com/size-chart.htm look for the Sakura measurement table.
In my case I might go up or down two sizes because of the top area, so anything between a UK 14 and UK 18 going by clothes and brand. For this model I ended choosing a size 16 and lo and behold the dress was true to the provided meausurements and fit me like a glove. As a busty hourglass figure I'm very satisfied by the cut and feeling of this dress. The black background combined with the floral pattern and cut both enhance and slim the figure while hiding the little flaws ;). Even people with a less than perfectly toned abs and lower belly should be comfortable by wearing this dress for instance.
A good bargain now that is on sale especially.
As other reviewers have written the colours are brigther IRL than in the pic. Personally I would have been happy either way but do keep in mind the actual color palette is a bright white-hot pink-magenta on black. The placement of the floral patterns in my case is pretty close to the one advertised, guess I was among the lucky ones.
The back zipper might be a problem for some. I was able to zip the dress up by myself but I would not wear this when I'm in a rush to go out and without another person to help me with the back. The zipper itself runs quite smoothly and it's indeed invisible after you're done. If I had to change one thing in this borderline perfect dress that would be swapping the back zipper with one on the side. Just much easier to handle alone.
The length of this model reaches below the knee (something I was really looking for in a dress), the top area is the perfect mix of proper and sensual but the twin lateral slits do show quite a lot of leg when walking...

Beautiful and elegant dress. Beware on the sizes though. I had initially ordered a size 8 (my usual size), which was absolutely tiny! I then ordered the size 10, which fit me but I still had to go to the tailor and let it out around the back.... the dress is lovely though and I look forward to wearing it soon!

Unfortunately i had to return this dress due to fit. I am usually a size 14 however read the reviews and decided to order size bigger. The dress still clipped me over my hips and bust and was baggy at waist. I thought the material was a little thinner than expected, however design was lovely. Had it fit i would have kept the item. Great service from ordering to delivery and quite prompt refund too, considering over xmas period.
