Rated 3 out of 5Â by schatzi Size down, way down
I am 4'11", 100lbs and ordered a PXS. I was swimming in this dress. Also, the arm holes gaped tremendously.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by plum47 This is the same as the Striped Day Dress that comes in 3 colorways. The fit and fabric are very nice, but without the stripes, this dress seems a little too shapeless. My waist looked undefined wihout the angled stripes on top. The dress needs a belt or a cardigan to give it some shape. I think that if you add the right accessories, it would be a good basic dress for almost any occassion or season. It just doesn't work as well by itself.

I bought the striped day dress (SDD) first and was amazed by it for its comfort, flattery, and machine washability. I think I will get tons of use value from that garnet. However, the striped day dress is definitely that, a day dress, so I thought this might provide the same flattery but be able to be worn in more situations. I am right but not as right as I had hoped to be. This dress is almost as flattering as the striped day dress but as a another reviewer noted, the stripes provide a visual illusion thing that makes you look slimmer. Without the stripes this little number still is slimming, it just isn't magical like the striped day dress. Also, the bellingham dress is the same length and the SDD, which on my is above the knee. I was hoping I could wear the bellingham to work but it is a no-go with the length and the cuteness due to the full skirt. I'm certainly not returning this dress but I am considering having the hem taken out to try to get some more length out of it. Overall I love this dress because it manages to be structured while still being soft and washable. Also, like the SDD it is a little low cut for the busty.
