BTSSB Arietta OP measurements? + Classic suggestions



Are the measurements for this dress true to size?


This dress has been on my wish list for a long time, but I am concerned about the measurements as I contemplate actually buying it.
Lolibrary gives the measurements as:

Bust: 90
Waist: 86

My measurements are 94cm bust/ 77 cm waist.

I am wondering if this dress is true to size, or if it is in fact more free size (as the picture suggests to me), and would fit me just fine.

I am also looking for suggestions from people for classic brands/indie brands that are similar to Mary Magdalene and Victorian Maiden and of reasonably good quality, but made to fit someone with my measurements. I'm trying to avoid cheap, wrinkly, thin fabrics. I know Innocent World is one great alternative.

Thanks for your help!
