The Calla dress is my second Henkaa. I am generally quite pleased with the purchase. The sleeves and neckline are particularly pleasing. Because the stomach/hip area are so figure hugging, it will be unlikely that it would be suitable in dress mode. I will rely on wearing it as a top. I usually wear a size 20 and ordered the 3x4/x. I would suggest the real plus bodies need a touch more ease in the stomach/hip and cannot just be graded up from smaller sizes. That said, it is lovely fabric and style.
