Rated 5 out of 5Â by winterbud Stretchy, soft, & flattering
This dress is much better on than in the picture or even on the hangar. If charcoal is a good color for you and you like to be comfortable, this is a great choice. I was feeling like I needed a good basic black dress and when I saw this I thought, hmm, looks a little dull but charcoal is better on me than black so I'll try it, and I'm glad I did. The lining makes it nice and thick so it's warm, you don't have to worry about undergarment lines, and it's really comfortable! I thought the pattern might be too traditional and flowery for me but it's pretty subtle and I really like it. I'm a pretty solid medium, size 8, or 29 pants, in most brands; I'm 5'9, 140-145 lbs, 34D and the medium in this dress fit perfectly. It's a fitted dress that pinches in at the waist, but has a little tiny pouf in the front that allows you to eat dinner :)

Rated 3 out of 5Â by RachDC curvy girls size up is want look as shown
On me (I'm curvy# this dress was very snug in my usual size, to get it to look like it does on the model #fitted top w/looser bottom# I had to size up and even then it was still a little on the clingy side. It looked fine in my usual size, but it was more of a fitted dress hugging every curve of my body vs loose#ish# dress skimming your curves. The fabric is pretty thick #no visible undergarment lines) and the spandex in it has kind of a spanx effect hugging you in, so it was certainly flattering as a more fitted dress, but I wasnâ€™t going for that look so I passed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by leforester Form fitting!
I like this dress overall, but was thinking of it for work and it's just too tight. It's a form fitting dress as other reviewer noted. I like the fabric (lining is nice), but way too tight to wear in a work setting. I may exchange for a size up.
