I ordered two dresses for wearing around the house and/or beach cover-ups. Similar dresses that I own are tight around my arms so I ordered these in 5X. Even if they were extremely loose I would be OK with them. I was surprised when I tried them on that the arm openings are barely bigger than the 2X or 3X. Buyer beware that dresses are tight around the arm even for a normal size 2X in a 5X!
The dress was to small, it had a bad smell and it started unraveling and it shrank after being washed in cold water on gentle cycle. I would return it but I just don't feel like going through the hassle of mailing it back.
Dress is much shorter in length than shown (6 inches above my knee & my height is 5' 7" w/o washing)& cut differently at the bust and arms the fabric will shrink more around arms and bust and length...it will be tight even though I went higher than my size (Without washing) Very Disappointing.
