I was immediately drawn to the embroidery on this dress, though note that it's not a dress but a cover-up. Remember that as it is a little thin. You can see the pockets clearly. Again, expected since it's a cover-up.
The description says this is a slim fit but the photos look deceiving. I ordered a Small, though I'm almost always a Medium 8/10P. It fit just as I expected it to - voluminous and a little long in the arms, perfect in the shoulders, slightly slim through the hips. This skimmed the hips and there was room to move and sit down comfortably. The length hit about an inch above the knees. The front closure has a hook-and-eye. Above that are two sets of tassels to tie. I tied the bottom one and left the top loose and untied.
Should you size down? Considering this is a cover-up I wouldn't have it too fitted. I would stay with your normal size.
Overall, it's a stunning cover-up and it will be really beautiful for a special beach vacation.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Texasmama The Perfect Summer Dress for 2016
I received this Gallabia dress yesterday just in time to wear it to a party last night. It is sold as a swim cover-up but it wasn't sheer like I expected from another review - the linen fabric wasn't at all see-through as long as you're wearing undergarments that match your skin tone.
The cut of the dress, the balloon sleeves and the embroidery were stunning - reminiscent of some MUCH more expensive brands that are showing up all over Instagram this summer. I'm a 6 in pants and an 8 on top and the medium was perfect - voluminous sleeves but slim cut but not at all fitted or tight though the body - exactly how it should have fit. I skipped the belt last night but will wear it in the future and liked that I could wear it both ways. I am so thrilled to have this dress, felt absolutely dynamite wearing it last night and can't wait to wear it again soon!
I hope J. Crew will design some tops in this style! I love it!
