This dress fit me perfectly! I searched and searched for a dress for a bridal shower and thank God I found this dress! It is very hard for me to find a dress because I am small around the rib cage but large chest. I have a true petite frame, (short waisted and small from shoulder to shoulder). It ran true to size and not too long. Careful though, I bought several other dresses from Jude Connally and they do run differently. I needed a small in the Ella style and the Beth style dresses were slightly small in the bust area. Hope this help you find the right size.
