Rated 3 out of 5 by Can't get over the polyester I really wish Karen Walker would work in something other than polyester. And cheap shiny polyester at that, I just can't justify spending nearly 200 with tax and shipping on it. And because it's polyester the pineapples are super lime green, for some reason in the pictures I imagined the print to be more muted and sort of a variegated coloring, but it is strictly two-tone and the green is much much brighter in person. The cut of the dress was fairly nice though I'm not sure about the slits on the shoulders, they don't seem to sit at the right spot and I felt like I would constantly be tugging them back into place every time I moved my arms. Ran true to size, though the belt was fairly small. March 28, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful Print, but strangely cut So, this dress runs really large up top, and true to size at the waist (I'm usually a 6 or 8; 5'6"; 140 lbs). It is very strangely cut. I am fairly flat-chested (size 34A), but the looseness of the bodice included the shoulders and arm holes so even if I were to order a smaller size, I can't image it would still fit at the waist. If you have an hour-glass shape with a tiny waist and a lot up top, it might work nicely for you, though. Its too bad, as I love the print. April 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cute but big on top The dress was adorable in person, but once I tried it on it was too big on top, whereas it fit my waist perfectly, so a smaller size would have been too small everywhere else. I usually wear a 6 or 8 in dresses. Ordered this in a 6, which was just way too big on top. For an online only style it's just too difficult to fit. It would have been nice to be able to try it on in store instead of waiting a week to find out it didn't fit. April 5, 2013
