This style of dress silhouette works on a range of body types - from apple and pear shapes, to rectangles, hourglasses and narrow-hipped inverted triangles - because the silhouette moulds to the contour of the body. It hugs you where you're narrowest and glides over the rest. No need for shapewear. It's dramatic to wear over cropped skinnies or straights too. Comes in red, and runs TTS if you like a narrow fit, or a little small if you prefer a fuller fit. Broad shoulders will battle - no zipper and no stretch. My narrow shoulders thanked the narrow fit. You have to figure out whether it's worth climbing in and out of. AMAZING side entry pockets. Fabulously flattering. Beautiful drape. Very nice fabric. I love this dress and one of the colours is sitting in my wardrobe ready for a hot Summer's day.
