I wear a medium (sometimes small) in most dresses. I ordered one of each size and was so excited to receive them to try. I tried the smaller one first because I loved the red colour. I couldn't get it past my neck/shoulders with my hands straight up in the air. Tried the medium and it was the same story. Nothing like making you feel bad about your shape. Supposed to fit "loose". So disappointed in this dress. It either needs a zipper or to be made from a material with a bit of stretch to have a hope of getting it onto my regularly shaped female body.
