I adore Bernie Dexter dresses and have several of them. I found this one to run small overall, but mostly small in the bust. I'm pretty busty (36D) and usually fit perfectly into a size Large for all other Bernie dresses. I purchased the Large and was able to zip it up, but it was WAY too tight in the bust. If you're handy at sewing, it can be let out a bit (maybe a quarter inch seam allowance) and it isn't lined, which actually makes it a bit easier to tailor yourself, but even so I would recommend sizing up for this style. For reference, I'm a 36D, with 30" waist and 39" hips, and I purchased a Large. If I didn't have some sewing ability, I would have returned it for an XL. The print is stunning and I love the boning in the bodice for support - just be aware of the sizing and you won't regret this purchase!
