Rated 5 out of 5 by WhimseyK Fab Dress
Love this dress! At first I wasn't sure if I would like the box pleats but the fit is VERY flattering. The dress definitely runs big as I had to size down. The only downside? The zipper...it is a bit sticky, but I think that is because the brocade fabric is so heavy. Very excited to dress this up for holiday events or down for everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlt10 Very flattering, runs large
I NEVER wear a 2 but in this dress I definitely needed to size down from a 4. I am curvy and petite and this dress definitely enhanced my figure. The shape is incredibly flattering for those who want to hide hips/lower tummy but enhance the waist. I am 5'3" and tried on the regular length (not the petite) and it was a great length on me - well above the knee but not too short. The only negative I have about the dress is that, due to the thickness of the fabric, the zipper tends to get stuck. That was the case on all three I tried on but none of the zippers were actually broken, they just require a little finesse. This is a perfect neckline for a statement necklace and tights. I can't wait to wear it to our christmas party!

Rated 4 out of 5 by twigjb This is the perfect red, not too orangey, not too dull. The fabric is a beautiful thick brocade, so it feels like a winter dress even though it's bare in the back. The problem I had was that it's high waisted, and the high waist combined with the full stiff skirt made it look juvenile. If the waist was lower and the skirt a bit longer, it would be a winner. As others noted, it does run big, but the quality is excellent. You'll have to try it to see if it works.
