A - I received this dress for Christmas and it is very pretty. It is a little tight on my Emily but I think it is supposed to be a tight around her waist and chest. The only warning I might suggest is: be careful to cover all of the velcro in the back of the dress. The material of the dress sticks to the velcro and if you pull if off, it pulls at the fabric of the dress. Be careful!
Other than that, I love this dress. Especially the pearl necklace. It is so easy to put on. I would recommend this dress!
