Rated 2 out of 5 by Sm4rtcookie Overpriced and underconstructed
The lace of the skirt was placed slightly off center - since the curve of the lace in the front is a design element, that's just sloppy. The lining doesn't lie quietly but catches so it needs constant adjusting to keep everything lined up.
For this price - especially since the fabric is quite inexpensive - the engineering should be flawless. I completely love the design (although I agree with other reviewers that it could be an inch or two longer), but the actual garment is shoddy. I'm so disappointed! I've lusted after this dress for over a year but it doesn't live up to its potential.

the waist has dropped down drastically from the perfect gray/blk one I purchased yrs ago when this style first came out?..same size medium, but my gray one is far superior and much more flattering ?..also tried to buy the "garnet" first before this "loden"??my red -Medium one ran a whole size smaller-tight under arms/chest?..don't know if it was a mistake or if all" garnets" ran small?..could not get any help to determine this?still would have preferred garnet to loden but I gave up trying to get one that fit

I love this dress...and all that it has to offer! I am 5'3" and weigh, right now, 150#. I ordered a large, and while it has some wiggle room, I wouldn't go smaller, due to my large chest. If you're smaller on top, I would recommend purchasing a med. If you fall near my measurements. The top tends to have no give, but other than that, you can wear this casually or dressy....just change your shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CyndiZ A winner!
I bought this dress as a gift for my daughter-in-law who loves lace. The fabric has a nice heft to it. She said it fit very well and was very cute on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kimmyZ29 I love the style of the dress and the material,
I love this dress. I have it in all three colors now. HOWEVER, when I purchased the first one which was grey and black about a year ago it fit perfectly. The waist was in the proper place now I notice that the last two I purchased in the same size are smaller, less material and the waist is about two inches to three inches higher than it was before. I believe it is a ploy to make them cheaper and use less material which is REALLY SAD because this dress is not cheap, it is expensive. I still love all three but the fit on the last two makes them not quite as fun to wear nor do they look as good as the first one.

A very comfortable dress, especially for special occasions. This dress is exactly true to size and shows off my curves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by connierae what a disappointment
I ordered this for my holiday dress and just received it today. OMG. I am between a small and medium, 5'6" tall and size 4-6, and went with a medium. The waist is miles away from my waist -- HUGE -- not fitted as in the picture at all. The waist also hits just a little below my chest (I'm average, a 36C) like a babydoll top. Then the skirt is very short, hitting wayyy above my knees. Honestly, it looks like a lacy boxy babydoll shirt. And not a flattering one. Trading in for a small for the waist wouldn't help, because the whole thing would be even shorter. I cannot imagine whose body this fits. At least customer service is waiving the return fee.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NewEnglandRunner Not for short, small frames
I was looking forward to a comfortable dress for the holidays, and I loved the ruby color. The size small just hung from the waist in a very unflattering way..sort of an empire waist fit but too close to the regular waistline. I am 5/4" and about 115 lbs, curvy and athletic type body. The bust was fine, and the length was good, but I couldn;t quite figure out the waist. I considered keeping it and taking it in a little on each side but I was afraid that I would ruin it. Sorry to see it go, I loved everything else about it. Seems like easy care and comfortable
