Rated 2 out of 5 by Triscuit130 Pretty?but not on me
I have been eyeing this dress for a while now, but was hesitant due to the reviews. I should have listened to them. The dress is cute, but on me it is tragic. I am 5'6" and it is way too short?more like a tunic. This is made even worse by the fact that I have a large chest, so the front of the dress was pulled up even farther.
Speaking of the chest area - insufficient! I realize I am well-endowed (38DD-DDD), but based on how it fit me, you would have to be absolutely no larger than a B cup for this to lay right. The smocking stopped halfway down my breasts, and if I pulled it down to where it should be, the neckline was ridiculously low. Plus, it would not stay there, of course. And there was no definition between where the smocking stopped so it totally looks like a maternity top. I usually love empire waists - but there IS no waist on this dress.
Disappointing. If you have a body like the model's (particularly the chest area), you might like it. If you have any "boobage", skip this one.
For reference, I am 5'6" and usually wear an XL in dresses like this. The skirt part of the dress was fine?big even. But overall it was way too short and not meant for any breasts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sissymae1 This dress has fit and quality issues
The sleeves at the seam wrist seam sewn w white thread very crooked and it looks bad. The neckline is way low and the fit is like a maternity dress. Cannot wait to return this dress. Xxs would be too big. I got the small and it drowns me. So disappointed because the colors are so pretty.

Wow. This dress looked great coming out of the box; very cute but...the fit is ALL WRONG. The stitching around the chest does not go low enough on the torso and therefore looks terrible. Being returned..

Rated 4 out of 5 by LisaST Super comfy
This dress fit me really well. I am 5'4" and average bust size (C). I like the low neckline and it doesn't show any cleavage on me. I wore this dress with leggings and skinny jeans this winter. May wear with bare legs next fall in warmer weather. Love the soft material and bright colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kc2u This dress has issues
This dress has issues. The neckline is a bit low, the pattern doesn't match up right, and it runs a little big, even for a dress that is supposed to be loose and swingy. That said, I could not send it back because it was for an event and it is so soft and packs so well. It made me look larger than I am in pictures because of the stripes (no surprize there) and I had to wear a little camisole underneath because I don't like even a little cleavage to show. If I started to hate it, I would still keep it to sleep in. (so soft) For now, I will wash it and hope it shrinks just a little.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nancyfancy Not as expected
The look of the dress and material were great, however, the fit was strange. The top was cut really low, and the empire waist sort of fit like a maternity dress. Overall, not real flattering at all so I had to return.
