    Having a good figure but also at a mature age this dress is great for its comfortable and flattering design. It's a bit playful which I like. It is also very feminine on. I love the 3 quarter sleeves. I wish there were more choices with this sleeve length because it is more flattering than a short sleeve at my age. I think this dress would look good on younger girls too. The draping on the front is original and a little retro. Looks great with a little jacket for cooler weather. It's a keeper!

    Too big and billowy for my curves

      This is a really nice dress but the way it looked on the thin model didn't translate to my size 10 (US 10) curves. To be fair, it also seems to have fun large, and so it was too big for me anyway -- but I wasn't encouraged to order the 8.

      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.

                Very thin fabric, and the uneven hem just doesn't suit my style.
