Palm Frond Blouson Dress

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not the right style for me... I tried this in a XS petite. Typically I wear a size 0-4 - I'm 5'1", busty, with a proportionally bigger waist. The dress runs a bit generous, as the top is blousey and the waist is elastic. Since I am busty and short waisted, the top appeared very full. The skirt, then, is tight and did not flatter the stomach area. From a side view, the silhouette was a disaster on me - too much fabric on top, no forgiveness on the bottom. I imagine that this looks better on girls who have a longer torso and are very slender overall. I'm sure it could look better belted. Note: the sleeves have slits on the sides that run from the bottom to the top seam, which is a nice detail that's hard to see in the photos. Given the fabric description, I wasn't expecting high quality and got what I expected; it's thin nylon mesh with a nylon lining. It very lightweight and this probably packs well. Note that the bottom of the dress has a raw hem. If the design looked better on me, I would have been much more comfortable keeping it at sale price. June 28, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Surprised I had been watching this dress for a while and when it went on sale I decided to give it a try. I love the design and the fit of the dress, but I hate the quality and the material. I definitely would not have paid $148 for this. the material is nylon mesh which is very easy to snag and tear. The bottom is not hemmed which also is a concern for me. I was very surprised at the fit! This dress is actually very flattering to my figure! I purchased a medium and found it to be true to size. I am 5'8 and I usually wear a 6 or an 8. My hips are a 38 and my bust is 34c. This is very form fitting and it does not hide flaws. I would recommend trying on in the store before ordering. I do agree with the previous review...this dress is probably better for taller women. October 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous dress! The lines on this dress provide a perfectly sculpted look. The ruching hits the hips at just the right spot with just the right tightness to flatter without riding up. The fabric is beautiful! October 19, 2012
