Gorgeous fabric, odd fit

    The fabric is lovely, and the red print even nicer than the photo suggests. I'm 5'8" and usually wear a 12 or 14. I went with the 14, which fit in the hips, but the top was so blousy and oddly cut that this dress is going back. It hung loosely on my shoulders (the kind of dress that's always flashing your bra strap?) and there was way too much room on top, even for a 38D.

    This is a beautiful dress but was not true to size. I got this on sale so I did keep it but there is a bit too much material on the top portion of the dress. I wanted to love this dress but it is not one of my first choices out of my closet.

    Waist hits too high, and I have an abnormally short torso so that's saying something. B cup and below need not apply for this dress unless you want a baggy bosom. Fabric is thin and lower quality than I thought. Print is fantastic though, its one redeeming grace

    Bodice Fits Well, Skirt Too Tight

    The dress is so pretty with lovely construction and classic design. Unfortunately, the skirt, being more of a pencil shape, is far too tight for me. This would work perfectly on a slim-hipped woman. I'm afraid if I order up a size, the bodice would then be too roomy.

      I knew I had to have this dress the moment I saw it, and as soon as I saw myself in it, I was in love. The slightly-higher waist is so flattering, and the details like the tucks along the collar, and the ribbon at the waist make this dress look adorable, yet chic, and office-appropriate. I have wide hips, so it did feel a little close there, but the fit should be excellent for those with a more "normal" figure.

          Bought this dress in the sale, and just received it this morning. I am very pleased with it - it has a kind of retro '50s feel with the design and big red roses. Great for the spring/summer. I bought the 14, and would say that it is a very flattering dress for a lady with a curvy figure.

            I've been on the fence about buying this dress. I'm glad I finally did. It's beautifully made. Great comfortable material. Perfect dress to wear to a baby or bridal shower. Looks great in the red floral. I like that you can wear it with a cardigan or without and it still looks put together. Can't wait to wear it!

              I got the red. The color is beautiful! While I understand what other reviewers have said about the top, it fits me great. The only negative is that the lining peeks out one side of the kick pleat in the back. I will tack it up myself.
