Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Spring-to-Summer Dress Great quality in terms of the the cut; I am slightly pear shaped, and I was not sure about the drop waist. However, the dress is cut very well and the quality shows in the way it hangs. I chose to order a size up; and I prefer the shape it creates (no bagging around the hips). In comparison to Karen Walker's other dresses, I would say this runs more "true to size" (My experience is that many of her dresses are cut small in the rib-cage) One minor negative: the top portion of the dress is VERY thin. You will def. need some sort of slip or cami. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by what a beauty I love love love this dress...lusted after it the minute I saw it. And now I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear it. The top part of the dress is not lined and be weary, the bottom is a bit voluminous, so size down! Overall, beautiful design and wonderful construction. February 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by beautiful but huge! I should have listened to other reviewers but when I ordered the dress they only had size 2 or 8 in stock. I'm normally an 8 and figured it couldn't be that big... but I am swimming in this dress. It literally runs two sizes larger than it should. (for comparison I am 5'6", 130 lbs). The material at the top is thin, something other reviewers also noted. For 300 dollars it should be lined. Despite this, I am returning the dress for a smaller size (there is currently a 4 available) and will buy a navy tank to wear under it. April 30, 2013

Size Guide

How to Measure


Measure under your arms at the fuller part of your bust. Keep tape level across your shoulder blades.

Natural Waist

Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.

Drop Waist

Measure around your body 1 1/2" below your natural waist.


Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.


Using a pair of your pants that fit well, measure from crotch seam to bottom of leg.


Wrap a length of string around your finger and mark where the end touches. Measure the distance between the end of the string and the mark you've made to determine what size to order.
