Runs very large!

Best Uses

  • Night Out

This is a stylish and comfortable design idea, and the material is lovely, but it runs extremely large. Unfortunately I ordered it on presale last fall before the measurements were online, and it seemed a full 2 sizes 2 big! My chest and shoulders are a tad broad compared to my hips, so depending on how a dress is cut, I usually wear a 6 or 8. I bought the 8 to be safe, and in this case, I might have even been better off with a 4. I am also only 5'3", and all the extra material just hung like a sack. If you are taller, and you can size down, this could be a great bargain for you!

      Haven't yet worn this, but it fits nicely. It also washes well. It's light weight so will work well for relatively cool summer evenings.

      Wanted to like this dress, but the extra fabric at the neck AND waist was just too much. Top made "the girls" look larger. Waist hid my pooch ok though. The longer length in front was also more than necessary. Love the sleeve length and the idea though. Think this would look better on someone tall and thin, not curvy.

        Ordered "Raven Abstract Animal", a nice dark gray/ivory neutral print. Comfortable design, nice drape, hits a bit below knee and has skirt liner. The waist needs a little more work, but it's not bad enough to send the dress back. I'm 5'6" and 120 lbs and the size 4R fit great.

          This dress works really well for my shape. The flowy bottom balances my wide shoulders. I am very narrow from waist down. It is so comfortable to wear. I have to adjust the draping around the waist every now and then- this is my only complaint. I wear it to the office and then I can dress it up with jewelry and heels for the evening. It is a closet staple for me.

            Just didn't love it. I bought it in the blue print and felt like an old lady in it.

                The only reason I got two of these is because it seemed ridiculous to get three. I kept the black and the animal print, although the navy print was cute, too. The animal print looks like it's black/white in the pictures, but it's really more of an oatmeal/black. The draping action in the front does a beautiful job of hiding my tummy pooch. I sometimes fall asleep in my work clothes when I'm putting my toddler to bed; I can sleep comfortably until morning in this very soft and forgiving dress.
