Rated 4 out of 5Â by kristay Adorable print and cut, not sure about the color
This dress is adorable and cut well for petite/thinner girls. I'm usually sized out of anthro clothing, but this one fit perfectly. I tried the XS and am 5'5" 100lbs. In particular, I loved the cut of the sleeves which were very flattering for me. The neckline wasn't low cut enough where I would need a camisole underneath, but it would still look great with one for a pop of color. I think the price is fair for what it is (better than paying $178 for a jersey dress prone to pilling, anyway). The only thing that kept me from purchasing on the spot, though, was the drab coloring. It wasn't great on my skintone but perhaps will work better on others. I'm still considering for sale time, though!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by mamashops2much Great for petites!
I am pretty excited about this dress. I get sized out often in dresses and I appreciate how much more petite sizes are available now. (Just wish they would sell petite sizes in store!) The fit of this dress is perfect, from the armholes to the chest to the length! I bought the XS Petite and everything fit my 4 ft 11 small frame and it hits about 2 inches above the knee. The color is exactly like the picture. I wish it came in more colors but the neutral tone is fine with me. The hot air balloons actually have the words "The China Tea Balloon" written on them. It's hard to see from the product shots but it's there and I noticed it right away. It's made of viscose and it drapes well and twirls okay (yes, I twirled!). The only drawbacks are that there is no lining and no pockets and hand wash.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Isabella This Will Turn Into Your Favorite!
I got this for my 24th birthday and absolutely loved it. You don't need a slip to wear it, just pull it over your head and it is instantly a cute outfit. The dress is unlined, but thick enough that you don't have to worry about what color underwear you're wearing. have a bit of a bum, and and the dress seems to lie nicely on the lower back without and pulling around my bum area. In the chest, it fits perfectly, and does not hang too low. The dress nips in tightly at the waste, so pulling it over your head if you are a bit bustier may be somewhat difficult, but it also stretches. There is a lot of give in the fabric.
For reference, I am about 5'4" and 114lbs. I am a 32 C.
The dress hits just above my knees and in the photos, I am wearing an XS regular, not petite.
Tones: I did not think that the dress washed me out. I am a redhead with medium pale skin and pinkish undertones and felt that it suited my skin well, but I also think it would be very easy to suit many different skin types.
Versatility : This dress is also appropriate for many different ages. It's an all around classic dress that can be kept for a while because the style is fashionable but not aggressive. Because of the somewhat conservative cut, this dress can be worn to work, but also out and about, as it is fun and flirty, too.
