Rated 3 out of 5Â by chazz Too bulky
I loved this dress - loved he details in the scalloped hem and the lace at the back, but the fit was off. I got the PM, which should have fit just fine, but it was all wrong. The dress was a little too high waisted for me and the skirt too pouffy especially around the waist. The material is beautiful and substantial, but because of that, the gathering at the waist made me look 10 pounds heavier. I would have considered tapering the skirt part from the sides, but there were pockets, which would make tailoring difficult. The back bunched awkwardly where it wrapped around, and it needed to be tacked down properly so the edges wouldn't gape open. I could try this again in a regular M and skip the Petite, but then the dress would be too long and because of the scalloped hem, I'd be stuck with the length. Too much to fix and I'm bummed out. Thought this would be a no brainier. Returning :(

Rated 5 out of 5Â by anthroinNY A surprise stunner!
Instant love! I spotted the coral version on a hanger and couldn't get it to the fitting room fast enough! I am 5'2" 34C, 27in waist - the XS fit perfectly up top and at the waist but just a touch too long. I ordered the XS petite online and will be wearing to a rehearsal dinner.
Beautifully made with great attention to detail - the scalloped edges are subtle and give the dress some flair, and the pockets were a fantastic addition to this easy summer dress! Neckline does not reveal much cleavage and I did not have the issue with the extra material at my waist. This is a fit and flare dress and it does what it is supposed to - flare at the waist, in a very flattering way. The peekaboo at the back covered with lace is classy and does not reveal any undergarments. Garnered plenty of compliments when I stepped out of the fitting room!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by AshleeG Not as flattering as I thought it would be..
First off the material and quality of this dress is amazing - Unfortunately the shape just doesn't work for me. The pockets made me look heavier but I have larger hips to begin with. I think this dress could work for someone who is trying to give the illusion of hips, but it just didn't work for me. I am pretty sure if they would remove the pockets it would have been perfect but it is unfortunate that I am having to send this one back :( Also, I would recommend sizing down.
