My measurements are 33/25/34.5 and I purchased this dress in XS. I am roughly 5'4" without heels.

First off, the dress has pockets. POCKETS!!!! These are pockets big enough to fit half a forearm. No matter how big your phone may be, you can carry it in one of those pockets, without having to worry about it falling out.

The cut and construction are excellent, as can be expected from this label. I was particularly impressed with the fabric - a sturdy and very breathable 97% cotton, with a quality satin lining in the bust like that in the lauren and voodoo vixen tops. Everything hangs the way it's supposed to, and the dress is gorgeous, even without a petticoat. The hem is (perhaps) 2 inches below knee-length on me. If desired, you will need a petticoat to get the volume seen in some of the photos.

Though my measurements all put me squarely in the XS size range, I found the waist to be significantly tighter than expected, to the point of being somewhat uncomfortable. I would have been tempted to exchange this for a size small, if not for the bust. Should you find yourself between sizes, and if you don't like tight waistlines, size up.

My only other real gripe about the harley dress is that, despite being an apparently high-quality, almost 100% cotton garment, the care label says "dry clean only." A sun dress is, by nature, an informal garment. It's meant to be worn outside on hot days. You're expected to get some sun (and maybe even -- gasp -- sweat!) in the thing, and this is the first one I've ever seen that needed dry cleaning. That automatically rules out any of the things I'd actually want a sundress for, and is pretty much a deal breaker for me. I do find the care label information on the website to be incomplete regarding what can and cannot be washed, and this is the third unpleasant surprise I've gotten so far in that respect.

All of this aside, I really really really like the harley. Despite the negatives outlined above, I don't intend to return it. I will, instead, test out some gentle washing techniques and will speak with my tailor about the waist. Your mileage (as always) may vary.

My measurements are 41-35-42 and I ordered an XL. I followed the size chart and it fits perfectly- snug in the waist but definitely not uncomfortable. Color is gorgeous! I just got it today, ordered 1 week ago (standard shipping, I live on the East Coast). I can't wait to wear it to my sister's wedding next weekend. Want the red and candy stripe versions now too! Thank you PUG for giving me a dress that is truly special and fits like a dream, which is impossible to do in the mall or a department store. This is also a reason why I consider this dress a great value and a great price- there's nothing even close to PUG's styles and price at the local mall! Keep up the great work! (Posted on 6/10/2016)

This dress would be great on all skin tones, it's just one of those universal flattering color. I've received countless compliments on this dress. Fits great in a Large and my measurements are 38-29-39. I would not recommend getting a Medium...the Large is the way to go. The fabric does not stretch. This dress also has pockets which was a great surprise. Looks good with or without a crinoline. Definitely recommend this one. (Posted on 5/27/2016)

I'm giving this amazingly great dress all 5 stars, even though I'm returning it. The only reason I am is because I find the M is too small a size [for my temporarily overweight state right now]. But I think the Size Chart is accurate, so I'm giving it a 5 star for Fit and Comfort, too.
I'm not exchanging it, though, even though it's killing me; it was one of several items I bought on a sale day [binge], and I never dreamed that almost everything would fit! And make me look gorgeous! I had to put my foot down SOMEwhere, so I'm keeping everything that fits (or is just 5 pounds away).
I'm 5'8 1/2", 37-29-43. An L will be perfect, as I'm finding it is in everything I've bought from PUG (save maybe the Haunted Housewife, in which I might have taken an M).

But I suspect I'm going to be ordering this blue beauty again on the next sale day (in the proper size for me, this time).
Or maybe in yellow... (Posted on 4/1/2015)

I wore this dress to my 40th birthday celebration and I got so many compliments. The dress is very well made and the material is of good quality. I felt fabulous while wearing it, the blue really complimented my skin well, and I stood out that night amongst my party guests (exactly what I wanted). Several of my friends told me that I looked stunning that night. I am definitely glad that I chose this dress for my very special night!!! (Posted on 12/19/2014)

This was another risky purchase for me- being a busty girl means that I tend to eschew dresses that call for a strapless bra, as gravity is no friend to me. However, the second I put Harley on I knew I'd made a good decision.

She just feels lovely, a full, weighty dress that is lined and lovely. I ordered a L, fearing my 38" bust wouldn't appreciate being in the M, but now believe I could have gotten away with the M as it may have given me just that little bit extra support. That being said, the L is a great fit, and got me non-stop compliments at work the night I took it for a spin. As PUG clothing tends to do- people just love their dresses.

I'm now eyeing off the yellow- another step out of my comfort zone- and every other colour.

I wasn't sure about this dress, but from the moment I tried it on, I knew this was a keeper. The color is so vibrant and gorgeous, and the cut is extremely flattering! Makes your waist look tiny! I love that it's sexy and swingy but not too revealing in the bust area (as some PUG clothes can be). This is a good dress for a wedding, or for dinner with your date's parents, if you know what I mean. I found the sizing true to the measurements. I am 34-28-40 and the M fit perfectly.
