      I'm 5'1", 130 lbs with a 36B chest. I have wide shoulders and I'm almost always an 8 or medium for tops/dresses (small or size 4 bottoms). I got this dress in orange/red in 8R and it fits meperfectly. I always loved the way the model looked in the orange/red dress and I finally decided to order it since it was on clearance! Oh I love the dress!! The material is rather thick (although it's not lined) and stretchy. The color is really bright reddish orange which is definitely my color (medium skin and dark hair). Although I'm not sure which season I'm going to wear this dress - fall, winter, or spring? But I'm going to love it when I get to wear it!

        I can't wait to wear this dress with some tights and boots. It is made of thick comfortable material and has a lovely flattering but conservative enough for work shape. I bought the blue and it is a nice jolt of color in my normal sea of black clothes

          Great dress that fits well. I got the long version, and it's right at my knees, so I can imagine that the regular would have been too short for work, etc. I also got the orange color, and it's literally traffic cone orange. I'm keeping it, but not sure I look great in that color.

            I am waiting to wear this dress when it gets a little cooler. I figure with a long necklace and high boots, this should look darling on. It makes me look younger without making me look young, if you know what I mean. And I love wearing bright, cheery colors, like this fire orange during dreary winter months.

                Ordered the navy in my usual size 6. Fits just fine, very easy and comfy. Not an amazing dress, but a good staple I will turn to often. Oh - love the versatility because it can be paired with numerous colors depending on your mood or event!!

                Measurements incorrect...

                I purchased this dress because the measurements indicated that a size 6 L the front would be 39 1/2" long. Upon fitting on the dress it was many inches above my knees, and since I intentionally purchased a long so that it would cover my knees I measured the dress and the front was actually 35 1/2 inches. That 4" difference is a big difference for a tall girl who doesn't want her knees to show at work... so while I love the dress and style I'm going to have to return because a long is apparently not a long and the measurements were inaccurate.

                  This is a perfect work dress to throw on and look great. It's classy and not revealing and the bright orange color makes an impression. I'm 5'10" and ordered the long to feel like I'm showing less leg at work. I love this dress!

                    I would not normally spend this much for a dress as I work from home so I was hoping I wouldn't like this and could send it back. NOPE. It is so cute and flattering the way it fits that I will have to find places to wear it because it is MINE. I bought the black with pearl stripes and can't wait to wear it out to dinner with my over the knee boots this fall. True to size 12 and a great length.

                      This is a very nice dress. The color (orange) and the fit are beautiful. In fact, it fits perfectly. I have had many, many compliments on it.
