┬áby AnnVeal Looked like a nightshirt on me
Even though I wasn't initially drawn to this dress, I gave it a try because of all the good reviews it was getting. I tried my usual size 4 (5'6", 130lbs, 32D-27-38), and I thought it ran large. I didn't try on a 2 though because I was in a rush. The length hit me a few inches above the knee. I did notice the 2nd button from the top kept slipping out of the buttonhole, as other reviewers mentioned. The darts under the top placket-things give the dress slightly more shape than a sack, but the loose fit and shorter length made me feel like I was wearing pajamas. I'd re-evaluate the smaller size come sale time, but a pass for now.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby mommyinadress simple and classic, so hard to resist
I love this dress, I was trying my best to talk myself out of it . . . but the dress won and now hangs in my closet. You can dress this up or dress it down, it is the quintessential "little black dress" & "staple piece". Now for the bad news, it wrinkles, so what, lots of things wrinkle, maybe if the price was a little lower you could except the material's flaw. Oh, and the button issue, I did not notice this, it seemed fine to me. With the hidden side zipper, I am assuming that you leave the buttons alone. And I love the gold detail on them, makes the dress feel a little more special, rather then a traditional plastic button (nice touch). So in the end, style wins over material!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby no1shopaholic Versatile and flattering
I agree with previous reviews about the button problems and the wrinkling; however, this dress was too cute to pass up buying - love that it has pockets which seem to lay flat and the band at the bottom which makes it more stylish than just a typical dress. I found it a really flattering cut and style (not just a straight cut but does have some styling at the top) and agree that it is versatile to wear now and into the summer - dress boots, heels, or sandals would look great. I did not need to unbutton it to pull on or off so I plan to sew down the buttons as it is annoying that they come undone. Would have loved to see it in a color but I think in black at least the wrinkles are probably not as apparent to others. If you don't iron/steam your clothing or are really bothered by wrinkles you may not like this item. I found it fit TTS.
