I bought this to wear on vacation and it was the perfect dress to thrown on over my bathing suit. I agree that sizing down is not a bad idea in this one. I’m 5’4 and it was a tad bit long on me but I just knotted the front.
I just got this dress and I normally wear a l-xl. But I went down to a small. Love, love the pockets and the adjustable straps. I might actually go back for a second one.
