Runs big and fits strangely

I bought this because the red loulou dress was sold out and I thought the Libby dress would fit similarly but this runs slightly big and the waist is too high. Everything else about it is great though. For reference, I'm 5 feet and 100 pounds and bought a Petite 2.

Didn't work for petite figure

    I wanted to love this dress, but the cut just didn't fit my 5'1" frame. It made me look short-waisted, and the skirt was actually fuller than I would have anticipated, making it almost look like I had a slight bustle on the back of the dress. Normally fit-and-flare styles fit quite well, but the proportions were just a little off on this. My usual Boden 4P just was too big in the waist and hips to make this look flattering.

      Just way too much fabric! This dress wore me, and not the other way around. I have to say that I just don't understand this dress. The skirt stuck out away from my body. Just very odd and unflattering.

        This dress combines sweatshirt-like fabric (soft, thick, durable) with a cut that emphasizes the waist, flatters at the bust and hides hips. Stealth sexy. The only drawback: there are an awful lot of seams--the horizontal seams on the chest and near the hem are particularly superfluous (and could be visually distracting).

          Pulled it on and looked pulled together right there. One of those dresses you could go bicycle riding with and then to lunch. Love it.

            Very nice weight to this dress. I am planning on wearing it mainly in the fall and early winter with boots to school functions. I like that it's machine washable.

              Love this dress so much I bought it in two colors! It's the type of dress that takes no effort and looks good. It's a fun cutesy dress that I wear to work whenever I know we're going to happy hour directly after. I always get asked by randoms where I got it. Highly recommended.

                This is a very well made dress, and beautiful material! However, I just wasn't wowed with this piece. I got it in the gray color, so perhaps it was my color choice. The fit is flattering, so I'm sure it would flatter many shapes. Fits well and is true to size, but it just doesn't have that wow factor. This one might be going back!

                  This dress has a wonderful shape and structure and is very flattering and comfortable. It oozes class and doesn't steal the limelight from the wearer or her work. I ordered this dress because I saw it on a friend and just had to have one of my own!
