Rated 5 out of 5Â by janislikejoplin most amazing dress
i fell in love with this dress immediately, but was hesitant to purchase the large (the only size they had avail at the time). im 5'8 and about 155lbs...with lots of flabby parts, ginormous boobs and some lovely belleh rolls. :)
i figured if it was too tight and too unforgiving on the lumpy parts, i'd either wear a corset or get an XL when they came avail.
i could barely contain my anticipation for its arrival -- and when it came (excellently fast shipping) i tore it out of the package and immediately put it on; sans bra & everything. OH.MY.EVER.LOVING.GOD. it was P.E.R.F.E.C.T. the fabric is so wonderfully soft and comfortable. it didnt make my rolls and chunky parts look bad. the sleeves are just long enough to hit mid-hand. its simple enough to wear with minimal jewelry or vamp it up with some chunky funk.
simply the most amazing dress i've ever put on.
its a bit long (i wore it with my birkenstocks) so i might trim it up a bit... or i might just leave it as is.
bigger gals - this dress is not JUST for the waifs...BUY IT! you wont regret it.

I loved this dress so much and was excited it came in under 100$~ I bought a MED and I wear a women's 4-6, am 5' 5" and weigh about 135 lbs. It fits AWESOME. the sleeves are long but snug so they don't slip over my wrists, the dress is really long, a lovely med. weight jersey material. I washed it in hopes of shrinking it a bit, but it seems to be pre-shrunk. The good news is, when I checked, since the edging is not hemmed, I can easily tear the edge off about 2" and it should still look the same(it rolls slightly), just be the right length. It looks great on. I have a small bust (34), waist (29), and hips (38), so hourglass shaped- I have to say it is way sexy dress. I found a great corset that will go perfectly over this dress...and some of my hand knits too! Where is the cool weather??

After reading ALL the reviews and debating long and hard about sizing, I ordered this dress in the rose color in a sz med. I am usually a small in FP. I am 5'7 and 130lbs and a 32DD. The medium fits like a dream. I really recommend ordering this dress a size up from what you would normally wear. The dress is not meant to fit skin tight. It is a casual dress that can be worn with a cute fur vest or denim jacket, but for the piece to be truly flattering it should not look painted on, and it will on top if you do not size up. I will be rocking this with cowboy boots and any number of cute jackets. The material is also substantial and not the jersey cotton that sticks to every crevice so you will not need to worry about a slip. Also do not let the fact that you will need to get it hemmed put you off. It is always better to get something hemmed to your preferred length than for it to come too short. Especially for us taller girls. I will be ordering this in EVERY color. It's great.

Â by Anda Big girls, don't be wary of this dress!
I absolutely love this dress, but was very hesitant to order it because I'm a lot larger than the average girl and have a few lumps and bumps. In addition, the large was the biggest size in stock, which made me even more hesitant. Yet, when I got it, I threw it on and was amazed. Unlike other reviews, I think that the price and quality are reasonably matched. The material is soft and beautiful. Also, I didn't have the arm/tight sleeve problem that others had, even though my arms are quite large and I have that same problem with many shirts. The material stretches decently to accommodate. However, it does cling to the lumps and bumps, but spanx or a cut-off pair of control top pantyhose takes care of that. A large fits me like a glove and I weigh about 200 pounds, with a 33 inch waist and a 37 inch bust. I'm very pear/hourglass shaped and I'm a little under 5'8" tall (I wear it with 6" heels and it hits the floor perfectly). I am by no means a skinny model, so I've attached pictures if you were curious as to what this dress may look like on a bigger girl. Important Note: It is a bit hard to wear a bra with this dress because it will likely show. Thus, I prefer to go bra-less in this dress (I am a C cup). Regardless of the minor faults, I love this dress and I hoped I helped you decide to get one for yourself!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by branwen Very Slimming
I love wearing this dress. It has seams on the back that make it very slimming through the waist. I also love the neckline. It is really long though, which for me is fabulous, because I'm 5'10" and love how it touches the ground. If u are more petite though it might need to be tailored for length. The sleeves are also long,which I like. On me, they pass the wrist, so if I want to layer bangles or bracelets, I scrunch the sleeves up as in the pic. Very good basic dress to have.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by dizzylux really great Dress
This dress looks so much better in person. It's very long. I'm 6'1" and it's just above the ground. The neckline is super flattering. I'm a B cup size and it makes me look great. Super cute dress.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by girl6116 Great for Tall Girls!
I purchased this dress in the sand color in a size M to wear as a nightgown. I am pretty tall..5'10", so it is difficult to find true "ankle-length" nightgowns (that are fitted), even among specialty tall stores. This is definitely a great length and I would highly recommend it for tall girls. When I first tried it on, it actually just grazed the floor. As far as fit, I wish I had exchanged the M for a S when I first got it. My measurements are about 34B-27-39 and I weigh 142 lbs, and the M fit okay, but it was slightly loose in the waist and hip area. After wearing it to sleep in for about a week, the material had stretched out further to where it was really loose on me. After washing and drying it, it returned to its original size but did not shrink any further. I am still happy with it since I'm using it for a winter nightgown, but I do wish I had tried the S. The material is soft and substantial, and I am considering purchasing another in a different color in size S. To be honest, I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing the sand one out as a dress..it looks too much like a nightgown/chemise to me, but the other colors may look more like a dress. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this. If this goes on sale, I will definitely get another.

I researched the size and fit of this dress long and hard before committing, and I haven't been disappointed! As it's autumn now I'm getting even more wear out of it, layering sweaters + scarves over-top has never been so easy. Plus, I'm still getting some wear out of it even though I'm 20-weeks-pregnant...
Be warned it is rather long, I'm 5'9", 140lbs, & bought M, but had to chop about 2 inches off the bottom so that it wouldn't drag on the ground. Thankfully with the raw hem no one can tell.
