Rated 4 out of 5Â by asta17 This is the first iteration of these Bailey 44 dresses that actually fit my frame. I've tried the longer versions which were practically maxi dresses on me (I'm 5'1). I do think this one is flattering for many body types, including petites, but it's just too form-fitting for my comfort. I don't really do the body-con thing, so the tightness over the hips and butt didn't look bad but wearing it would make me uncomfortable. It is extremely comfortable though, as are most of the rayon Bailey 44 pieces. It does pill though.

As is true with the longer version of this dress is definitely pops your curves, and finds some you didn't know you had. My husband was looking at the pics I took in the dressing room & asking why I didn't buy it.
I didn't buy it for the following reasons:
1. I have the longer version in purple. This one isn't really that different.
2. Something I didn't notice with regard to the longer version until I got it home - it makes my belly look...like another curve. I know that spanx theoretically fix this problem, but I find the dress looks better without. It's just kinda tricky.
If you love the longer versions of this dress you might want this one too - something a little different, new color. I also like that the dress could be worn as a top, with jeans. It rouches up rather easily.
I feel like sizing down in this family of dresses is a good idea. I'd say small is true to size for me, but in the pictures I am wearing an extra small.

This dress is just sexy :) I admit I am a little shy to wear it in public. I have never worn a dress so fitted in the back, but I bought it anyway. With a little courage, I think I can pull it off. I love it because it gives me curves that I don't really have. The style is classic and the dress is very comfortable. It looks really cute with tights and heels, or just bare legs. It will be my go-to dress when sexy is o.k. The price was too high (for me), and the hem is unfinished, but I don't think I'll find another dress like it. I wish I had the money to buy it in cream/tan too. Win!
