I carefully read all the reviews before purchasing this dress and opted for the 16RC following the advice about it being a snug fit. I'm usually a 12/14 and am a 34GG. The quality of the fabric is lovely and I was able to step in to this dress and pull it up over my hips with ease before fastening the zip and it was a lovely fit on the hips. So far so good. The shoulder straps are wide enough to cover any bra straps and the front & sides of the dress are high enough not to reveal any hint of bra. Unfortunately it made my boobs look enormous and out of proportion to the rest of my body & making me look very top heavy. The waist band actually sat just under my boobs, almost like an empire line, not on my waist line, so if you're long bodied like me this is not a good look. Also, the fit in the small of my back wasn't great either with a good fistful of loose fabric.
So disappointed but have no option but to return it.
