I tried this dress in the M and L size and just couldn't get excited about it. It is very much a shift dress--which I usually like because it hides the flaws and is so easy to wear--loose and flowy. It looks very much like the photo--it has an outer layer that is sort of A-line from the back, with a slightly more fitted inner layer. Very comfortable. It is pretty short (I am tall, 5' 10")--to the point that I don't know I could raise my arms up over my head without being indecent. Ultimately, I couldn't get over the fact that I felt like I was wearing lingerie--I think it was a combo of the style, pattern and the material. Having said that, I considered to keeping it because it was so darn comfortable, but decided against it because it felt sort of dull/ inappropriate for its intended purpose (a wedding). Mayber better if you are smaller/more petite than I am ??? For reference, I am 160 lbs, 36DD normally a 10/12 on top and 6/8 on bottom. Both the M and L fit fine, but the L looked slightly better (longer, flowier).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lodimc Cute, comfortable summer/fall transition dress
Love this mini dress. It covers my problem areas while highlighting my legs, and it's very comfortable and flowy. It's comfortable for summer yet I can easily see wearing it with tights and boots for fall. I love the pattern, too. Sort of zebra-ish without being garishly animal print.
My only concern is the price v. quality- it's feels a bit cheap for the price. A GREAT sale dress.

I was surprised to see this in person because it didn't really look as good as in the pictures. I did try it on though and it's just a really simple and easy silhouette so I will probably keep it. Also very comfortable. Looks cute belted and the muted tones will work for Fall. I wish I had waited until this went on sale though. It's always hard to tell with the online only selection...
