Â by marymaryquitecontrary in defense of the dress
I'd been searching for a white dress (I need it for an event in late April) and had not been having much luck. So in an act of extreme optimism, I ordered this dress despite it's poor reviews. I'm happy to say, I was pleasantly surprised! This dress is lovely -- a great length for tall girls, and a nice substantial (not see-through) material. As others have noted, it's more structured than flowy, and the sizing is a bit wonky. I'm typically a size 8 or 10, and the large fits my well, but is a little loose in the waist -- a problem easily corrected by wearing a belt or sash. I did not find the arms to be tight, and while I notice what one reviewer called a "glue" smell, it's not strong and will probably dissipate after airing out for a couple of days. Overall, I'm very happy with this dress!

I really wanted this basic white dress to work for me. I love the idea of it. The sleeve length seemed perfect, cute shirt dress style. Perfect looking on the hanger... quite the opposite on. I looked matronly and frumpy. There is really no style to it at all (makes you look chubby from the side). It's a shame it didn't work out! Would not recommend.

I've been looking for a basic white dress and I thought this one would be it. Unfortunately I don't know who this dress would be good on....It is completely unlined. The fabric is stiff and not very nice. it poofs out oddly from the waist which doesn't work with the overall length, and the sleeves are tight. Tight sleeves are a complaint I've seen on many shirt dresses on this site but I never have experienced the problem myself until now. it was also a bit hard to get into. It isn't worth the money at all. It also had an odd smell- kind of like glue which I found off putting.
