Rated 5 out of 5Â by riskanti Soft, comfortable, easy, and pretty
First review? Really? Hard to believe! Anyway, this dress is a good go-to for daily dress wearing: it's incredibly comfortable, the colors are flattering (kind of heatheredâ€”I have the blue), and the fit is very forgiving. Re the fit, though: you can see on the (skinny) model that the front of the dress isn't fitted to her bodyâ€”the dress is meant to fall like that. It's fitted through the back (which in this case is the important part), the arms, sides, shoulders, but drops a bit straight-down from the top of the chest. This is a little visually confusing at first, but I got used to it quickly. The dress is also more of a "cute, pretty, looking good" dress than a "sexy, bombastic, bodacious" number. But who doesn't want at least one of those, for the days you don't want to get super dressed up, but still want to twirl around your kitchen? Just me? Okay then! Last thing: I'm 5'3", 135lb, 34D, and got the small in the REGULAR size, so the dress falls just below the knee. Never had a chance to try the petite, unfortunately.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GidgetGoesHawaiian Comfy dress, but does not flatter
I had noticed this when it first came and and purchsed it on the first markdown. I got the wine color. I normaly wear a 6 and bought this in a small (regular - not petite - I am only 5'2", but the regular was already short enough). The small was a little snug across the bodice, but a medium added too much "weight" on the bottom. It is a comfy dress and looks cute with tights and lace-up shoes, but honestly is not the most flattering cut. The snug top and wide bottom add pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by axr8111 Maybe better for less curvy
I'm thinking maybe this is better for those with less curves. I agree with the other one bad post...tight on top then straight out like a triangle. It was incredibly unflattering but I'm thinking that if my chest was smaller it wouldn't tent this thing out so badly. So maybe better for the tall lean girls...maybe. On me it looked awful
