    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.

        Most flattering dress I have ever put on

          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.

              The waist is a bit odd and needs to be fussed with, but it is a very nice dress. Great sleeve length and slimming. I am 5'9 and a bit pear shaped and I weigh 142. This works well for me.

                I wasn't sure about how this would work, but it's divine. I got the Raven Abstract Animal print, which is more of a charcoal (with a touch of green to it) and less like an animal print than it looked online. It is incredibly comfortable, and the detailing in front hangs perfectly to highlight the smallest part of my waist while providing enough camouflage over the belly (I just had baby #2) that I don't need to suck it in. The lining is light, but just right to help the dress skim rather than cling. The neckline is low enough to be flattering but high enough to be modest, and the extra drape of fabric in front has a lovely feminine swish when you walk. I don't know yet how it will hold up to washing, but this is really the perfect easy throw-it-on-and-look-fabulous dress. All it needs is a good shoe and earrings and you're done!

                Btw, for anyone concerned about ironing the front detail, as mentioned by some of the reviewers. There's really no need if you have a dryer - just pop it in there for a few minutes with a damp washcloth and it steams into perfect shape.

                  This dress is very versatile. Simply by changing your accessories it can go from office to evening. I pair it with a belt around the waist, and it is so adorable. I am looking forward to purchasing another one in a different color. My only complaint is the asymmetric hemline. It is not a drastic asymmetry. Just enough for a little flair, however, I think I would still prefer an even hemline. This little style "hiccup" in no way prevents me from loving this dress.

                    This dress is very flattering for curvy body types. I wore it to work and then changed shoes for an evening event and it transitioned very well. The gathering in the front and the draped neckline both work very well to minimize the tummy and emphasize the chest in a classy way.
