Overall I was satisfied with my purchase, Jaycee MBD size A18 and it shipped within 3 solid weeks. I am 5' 3.5" tall, usually wear women's 14W-16W, or regular 18-20; bust is 44 and am 209 lbs. I had a seamstress to hem the dress, nothing else (2 weeks $99). Therefore I strongly suggest that you give yourself 6 weeks for shipping and alterations. I ordered it as a matron of honor dress, and I was pleased with the fit, sleeves included. I had to wear a padded bra with this dress to fill in the cups and still ended up having a little more room, but I don't think you could tell the difference. I wore nothing more than a slimming garment underneath to smooth out lines.
I took one star away because the garment bag that comes with the dress was horrible, not at all size appropriate for larger dress size, making access a nightmare. I ended up discarding it and using a old bridal garment bag. This was disappointing given the cost of the dress. Also, the pleats were a challenge to steam out the wrinkles. Not good. Overall, I think you will be satisfied with this dress.
