    Short waist - 8/11/2013
    By: from West Chester, PA

    I liked the fabric and style of this dress but it was very short waisted. The elastic waist was about 4 inches above my natural waist. I am 5'9". I purchased two different sizes and had the same problem with both. Had to return them.

    A real basic that can be dressed up or down making it appropriate for any occasion. I like the pattern, it's easy to accessorize and the colors compliment everyone.

    pretty dress - 7/31/2013
    By: from Central Valley CA

    I'm 5'9, 162 lbs, 40-34-39 and the dress did fit really well, except as others have noted the dress is extremely short-waisted. I am normal proportions, so there was a blunder in the tailoring of this dress. I do believe it would even be short waisted on a petite sized person. I have sewn for myself, and know when a dress is incorrectly tailored. Also, the sleeves are unattractively short, not having the lovely length shown online. I believe the length could be longer as well, then you may just have the perfect dress!

    perfect all-occasion dress! - 7/16/2013
    By: from Baltimore, MD

    I ordered a size 8 but exchanged it for a size 10 because the dress is rather short-waisted. I'm 5'4" and average build, so a size 8 would have been fine otherwise. This is such a lovely dress! The light feel of the fabric makes it perfect for spring-summer-fall. The drape of the fabric is very slimming, so that the gathered skirt doesn't look bulky over the hips. It's the perfect all-occasion dress - so difficult to find nowadays!

    Waist too high - 7/8/2013
    By: from Salt Lake City, UT

    Beautiful print on light weight fabric. I like the full sleeves (instead of tiny cap sleeves) and pockets. I should have paid more attention to other reviews. I am near 6 feet tall and the waist is so high, it was like and empire waist on me. I expected the rayon to be silkier and prettier at the price. Had to return the dress.

    Not for mature body typed - 6/28/2013
    By: from Bellevue, WA

    Nice print and fabric. While dress has a full skirt and elastic which is forgiving of no perfect bodies, sleeves are narrow and good for those with heavy upper arms.

    Wonderful dress - 6/6/2013
    By: from Idaho

    Soft drape, no wrinkles. So comfortable. This is the second dress of this style I purchased. Its so hard to find a feminine modest dress. Great length on short sleeves. Perfect for office, church or social. PLEASE HAVE MORE DRESSES OF THIS QUALITY AND STYLE.

    Love the dress that I am wearing with a navy jacket and a pair of navy high heel sandals. Got many compliments and the dress not only looks fabulous but also travels well.
