Rated 4 out of 5 by Great summer dress! Purchased in PL. For reference I'm 42-32-42, 14/XL. I tried on the XL and it was very long, the length on the petite is perfect, grazing the top of my feet while barefoot. The XL had what I considered to be way too much fabric in the skirt portion, the PL, seemed like a better, more flattering fit for me. Because the bodice is stretchy, i think sizing down is a good idea, so that the dress is fitted up too. I wish the straps were thick enough to conceal bra straps. The detail of fabric folds works great with this fabric. Measurements from side to side on PL: Underarm-underarm:17.5" Waist: 15" There's lots of stretch. March 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty print undecided on fit When I stopped into a store, they didn't have this dress to try so I ordered online. I'm feeling a little undecided. For reference I'm 36c/28waist/38hips 5'6" and took a regular m. The dress fits, personally even with the elasticized back, I wouldn't size down in this. It will look obviously stretched, in my opinion. The straps are thin and adjustable, love the deep purplish blue of the top and the peachy complimenting in the skirt. Things I don't like? I'll have to wear a bit of a heel with this, I wish the straps covered a bit more, the seam at the waist doesn't seem designed well. It kind of bunches and I immediately felt the need to cover up and besides, even with the interesting two-fer print I still feel this needs a belt for added interest. I've included a photo with a belt so you can decide for yourself. The thing that I don't think I can get over is this dress makes a lot of noise when I walk. I like that the material is lightweight and feels very cool. In the hot summer months, this will be a God-send. I just don't know if I love this enough to pay full price for it. With all the great reviews, I had higher hopes for this dress. I will say it feels effortless. Hope this review helps some of you! May 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, comfortable, just maybe a tad long I'm usually an S, but I bought an XS for this dress as the S was a tag too long (I'm about 5ft 4in). Its really comfortable and the top gives enough support for me to go without a bra. The pattern is also slightly more purplish than shown in the picture. Overall, gorgeous dress and worth the price!
