I bought this in petite small (I'm a UK 10/12 and 5'1"). It fits perfectly. It's very attractive without going to silly extremes. I bought it in the green which is a wonderful colour. I've washed it several times without shrinkage. This has included washing it with travel wash whilst on holiday. The garment says not to iron it, but I think the front needs it after washing. I have used a steam iron on it without adverse effect.
