Rated 4 out of 5 by Great summer dress, but not for me... I love everything about this dress, except for the fact that I'm sized out of it. I normally wear a size 10 in Tracy Reese dresses (occasionally a 12 because I have 38DD concerns going on). I ordered a 10 and a 12, but the 12 didn't even come close to fastening at the chest and measures 40" there (yes, it has a hidden snap placket down the front, which I didn't mind at all). The fabric has zero stretch, so that is definitely a factor, and it is smooth with a pattern that tries to give the illusion of a woven texture. I am 5'6" and the length hit me just above the knee, which I love for leg emphasis. The construction of this dress, in my opinion, is just not for the large chested ladies. The pros are that the bottom is not too "poofy", but has a beautiful and flirty amount of fabric. I am very pale with dark hair, and the colors where exactly as seen in the photos and very flattering. The mesh detail at the shoulders adds a bit of fun edge and doesn't look out of place. The internal "lining" is a bold green color (doesn't show at all) and has a camisole shape to it with spaghetti straps that attaches fully to the inside of the dress. I'm going to pray that my boobs shrink overnight; otherwise, this almost perfect dress has to go back. May 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Disappointed I agree with the reviewer that says this dress is not for large chested ladies. I am one of them and tried on a 10. Fit great in the waist and below, but didn't even come remotely close to fitting over my 38D chest. And there is no stretch to the fabric. Size 10 and even size 8 usually fit me in Anthro dresses. Also, there is no side zip - be aware of this. It buttons down the front. So, overall pretty dress, but seriously small for women like me. It is going back tomorrow. May 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not 5 stars only because of sizing I loved this dress in the photos. I loved it even more when it arrived. It is just as pictured and the material is light and comfortable. However, it runs extremely small in the bust. The dress fit me perfectly everywhere else, but due to it running small in the bust and the front of the dress held together by just a few snaps I couldn't close the dress without it popping back open. I'm a 34D, but on the smaller side- not unusually busty by any means. I couldn't order a bigger size because it would have been large everywhere else. I was SO sad to send this one back. July 2, 2014

Plenty by Tracy Reese is marked by bold color pairings, graphic prints and fanciful, bohemian details. Bursting with unexpected textures and patterns, this globally inspired collection features Reese's signature detailing through lush embroidery and novel embellishment. Case in point: this flared, crinkle-cotton frock.
