I went on a mission to find a cotton gauze dress that was polished enough to wear to work meetings but fun enough to wear to brunch and comfy enough to mother in. Xirena makes the absolute best gauze dresses, with just the right amount of structure. I sized down to a small in this cut. Honestly there was not much of a difference between the sizes, I just preferred the look of less fabric in the midsection region. I am so happy with the quality and fabric, I am going to spring for this one.
