STRIPED FIT AND FLARE SWEATER DRESS
I ordered this dress during the early Black Friday promo sale mainly to stack with a coupon and to get free shipping. Based on previous reviews, I ordered a size down from my usual size and got an XS. I agree with previous reviews that the sizing on this is large as I'm rarely an XS in Express dresses and the XS fit fine in this. The cotton blend material was a nice touch as well as it makes this dress super comfy on. The neckline on this is a little wide. I think I might have issues with this showing my bra straps if I'm not careful. For some reason, where this hit on my rib cage made me look kind of wide. It might be the combination of the wider stripes and where this hit but it didn't look quite right. I'm going to try it on again with boots and a belt and see if that doesn't help a bit because the dress is very cute. I would suggest if you can to try this on in store first or to at least order a size down.

Super cute, but way too big!
This looked so cute on, except that it runs HUGE! 5'4'', 115lbs, usually XS fits me perfectly, but this XS was way too big around the mid section. Saddest return ever!

This was the one purchase in my online shopping cart I was on the fence about buying but I am SO glad that I did. I'm obsessed with this dress and will be wearing it all throughout fall/winter!
Yes, as other reviewers mention It does run pretty big so size down! I am 5'4 34DD 125lbs and typically buy small/extra smalls at express. I purchased this in an XS and it is a little loose fitting but still looks great! It's just not one of those super form fitting dresses. This dress is also insanely comfortable! I highly recommend, just make sure to size down!

runs at least two sizes large!
I got this dress in the mail today, tried it on, and it's huge! I usually wear a size medium. I'm 140 lbs, 5'3, and 36D. This dress was way too big. It felt like it was at least two sizes too big. I love it, so maybe i'll try a xs

Cute, but definite sizing issue
As the previous reviewer stated, I LOVE the look and style of this dress, but the sizing is way off. I am typically a small in express tops and dresses, so I went with that for this dress as well. There were no reviews at the time when I made the purchase, but I wish there had been because it is huge, especially the neckline. I am going to exchange for an XS and see if that does the trick, although I'm worried about length. For reference: I am 5'6, 130lbs, 32B chest.
