Dress is beautiful! My height puts me right in between missy and petite. Based on length, I ordered the petite. Petite size was correct for me. However, I based my size selection on the "size" chart. The dress was a little too big, so I exchanged for smaller size. The smaller size was perfect. I am wearing this dress as the "mother of the groom" for an August wedding. I am very happy with my choice. I'm sure that I will feel special, and confident on my son's big day!
