Overall, this was a lovely dress in a lovely color (regency), more brighter and more attractive than the picture on the color chart shows. The padded bodice made it unnecessary to use a bra. I requested the tailoring team to make pockets onto my dress, but I wish they were a little deeper since things slipped out as I sat. If your measurements don't fit neatly into one size, or you don't want to deal with having it hemmed, I strongly recommend ordering a custom size. It will fit perfectly if measured carefully and precisely.
