Bridget Denim Dress
After reading the first review, I ordered 1 size up in this dress. I am 5'6" (110lbs) and typically wear a 0, though I regularly choose a 2 in Rachel Zoe as her line seems to run consistently smaller than others I wear. I found the 2 to fit very well except that the bust is a little large on me (32B). I think it's an easy fix - shortening the straps, so I'm considering keep it. If return shipping were free on this site, I would order the 0 for comparison as I think a slightly snug fit might be desireable in this dress. The dress has horizonal seams throughout the bodice and separating the ruffles from the straight part of the skirt. The bust is pleated and the V far from risque. The dress is a really cute casual LBD.

First time ordering Rachel Zoe so I wasn't familiar with sizing. I ordered my standard size 4 but also ordered a size 6 just in case the fit was snug. I am usually a size 2 or 4 (5'4", 115lbs.). When the two dresses arrived, I tried the size 6 first (unheard of for me - haven't been a size 6 in decades...) and could barely get it zipped. This dress is tiny. The fabric is a stiff denim but has a little stretch to it but not nearly enough to make the size 6 wearable. Rather than give up on this, I reordered a size 8 because the design and look of the dress is lovely and I want so much for this to work. If the 8 is still too tight, I'm done with it. I rated this with 4 stars because the dress is exceptionally good quality, it's just very small.
