Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Snger123 Elegant Casual
This maxi dress is beautifully designed and highly flattering. The waist is pulled in with elastic and "belted" around the hips with extra bands of material that are ruched at the sides, providing texture and fold, with a slender cascade of material down to the floor. I like the slightly thicker navy stripes on the hip band, and I appreciate the precision of the stripes matching exactly at the side seams overall, top to bottom.
I am smaller on top, larger on bottom, and size medium worked well-- for reference, I am 5,8", 135 lbs, 34-B. The hem is long, I would need to wear heels. Wash instructions advise cold-water wash, hang to dry. Great price for a lot of material and style!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Aubs1207 This is new go to comfy staple. This dress is elegant, casual and comfortable. I can easily throw it on and wear it all day long and look like much more put together than I really am. The cotton is soft. It is thin like a t-shirt. I wore it with tights, boots and a scarf for a colder winter day. I am 5'4, 120 lbs, 34A , pear shape and my usual XS fit TTS. I love the detail at the waste. It gives the dress form without having to wear a waste belt that can get tighter throughout the day. Unlike the other reviewer the length was perfect on me with my flat boots. The khaki and black wasn't available when I first ordered and I am tempted to get that color as well. I see myself living in this dress year round.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Inpirie Chic Maxi Dress
I really like this! It's a really fresh idea for a maxi dress. That loose top, pulled in at the hips, drops dramatically to the floor with a cascade of stripes. These details help give a slimming shape to the idea that "horizontal stripes makes you look larger".
Slid on a pair of earth-colored flat sandals and felt effortlessly chic!
Initially, I ordered a S but exchanged it for a M because I wanted to have better overall draping (e.g. No-no to the maxi dress female crotch 'hump'). The M was a tad too long at the hem and loose at the top but a toss in the dryer after a wash (recommends line dry only), and a few swipes with the iron made it a perfect fit for me.
For reference, I am 36-28-36 at 5' 6", 125 lbs.
