Rated 3 out of 5Â by JulesMilo very nice but looks odd on model
There's something going on with this dress that I can't put my finger on. It looks a little off on the model shots as well as if the top and bottom portions are misproportional. Maybe it's the cap sleeves? Or the fullness of the skirt? BUT here's the thing - when I tried it on in the fitting room, the skirt was not full at all. This is why I'm thinking it's the way the cap sleeves look? Because the band at the waist is perfectly aligned with my natural waist. Perhaps if we see it on a dress form *ahem anthro!* we could better guess the fit.
As for the fit, there's a nice elastic ruching in the back along with a tie that helps show off your curves. The material is very soft and silky but not very stretchy.
A very cute dress but the design may need a bit tweaking. Maybe if itcame in a version with shorter or longer sleeves?
For reference, I'm 100lbs, 5'5", 34A, 25 in jeans and I tried on an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mnm9 Super flattering!
I loved this dress! It felt grecian but in such a modern color. Also, the drapping across the bust evokes Marilyn Monroe on an air vent, but in a style that can be dressed down for the office if you wanted to.
The tie and smocking on the back mean that the dress tucks under your bust line and helps define your figure, nipping in at the waist. As a girl who's curvy on top, I loved this since it meant that my larger bust didn't turn the whole dress into a tent and make me look like a straight up and down box...
I thought the kelly green color was charming, for the holidays this year as well as spring and summer next year. Great dress.

While the green is lovely, if you have olive or darker skin the pink is very flattering. I tie the bow in the front and it really works accenting the waistline. Sizing down might be a good idea-I'm 5'4" and 130lbs and I am sporting an xs in the photo.
