I love, love, LOVE this dress! It fits my curves so nicely, and is very comfortable to wear! I'm 5'5", 195lbs, 43/34/44 and got this dress in an XL, and it fits great! It was a little bit of a tight fit in the bust area, so I sadly can't wear my favorite bra that gives me a little extra umpf with this dress, but it still gives me great cleavage with a non-padded bra. I recommend wearing some sort of shapeware in the skirt area (or nothing at all) since it's rather curve hugging and can show the outline of undergarments or a bit of pudge if you have some like I do. Overall this dress makes me look and feel amazing, and it will get you a lot of stares!
