Tasteful and fun. Go a size up.
Having experienced the "too-large ribcage" phenomenon with other fitted-bodice dresses, I ordered a size up as several of the reviewers here have recommended. I am SO glad that I did so--there's absolutely no way my regular size would have fit. The structured twist in the bodice that makes the dress so lovely is what also makes it so unforgiving in terms of wiggle-room. I turn the dress to the side or the front and zip it up that way (I would not necessarily recommend this technique for everyone...only on those whom the dress can easily be turned). My advice: if you have enough time, order a couple of sizes and see which one works.
The fabric of the dress is beautiful--heavy enough for my fall wedding--and the print is whimsical but not so much that you'll look like a seven year old playing fairy. I don't find the bubble skirt to bubbly in the least, and the pockets are a terrific bonus.
