┬áby asta17 This dress is so interesting! Granted, it doesn't fit my petite frame at all (wish it came in petite sizes), but it could be an amazing dress on the right body type. The colors are gorgeous and it has a built-in shape that you can see even on the hanger. The front is simple (though depending on where the pockets hit they may or may not be widening) - doesn't dip too low, and hugs curves well without being constricting. The back is what is special though - the cutout is tasteful and doesn't show any bra, and the buttons down the back are adorable. My fit issues (tried the 0, I'm 5'1, 32A, 105 lbs) mostly centered around the length (not surprisingly too long), and the armholes/chest area since I'm small-busted and narrow up top. It is lined and feels of good quality, so I'd recommend this dress for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Pemberton Beautiful Colors, High Quality !
I have been eyeing this dress online, and finally I saw it in the store. It's stunning. Good quality, thick fabric with a lining. It's body-skimming, but forgiving. I have fair skin and blonde hair, and the colors look amazing with my skin tone.
I am petite, 5'3, 120 lbs. I usually wear a size 0 top, and size 4 bottoms. With this dress, I went with the size 0. I have petite shoulders, and while the size 2 fit me in the hips area, it was baggy and ill-fitting in the shoulders. If you're petite on top, size down.
The dress comes a few inches above my knee, and again, I'm short. So this might not be a good pick for taller ladies who aren't comfortable with above-the-knee dresses.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby RosaVino Good... mostly.
I was hoping for a summer dress... but I'm not sure about the breath-ability of this item. While there is lining (huge plus), the outside is viscose... it seems a little bit hot. It's also very bright. If you're pattern-shy like me, it is really as vibrant as the picture, if not more-so.
That said, it was well constructed, and a good buy at this price-point.
Fit was TTS - but on the smaller side. I usually take a 14 in dresses... and the buttons in the back of my bust area pull a little. I'm a 40-32-40... so I didn't think I would have to worry. May be an inch off the size chart, at least up top. Otherwise I look great in it. (I'm not sure everyone will have this issue - I'm a 34gg), but bear it in mind -ladies built like me.
