The black striped version of this dress is exactly what I wanted (more casual looking). I am 5'7, size 18 top, 14/16 bottom, full busted & broad shouldered, otherwise straight up and down. I ordered the 2X and was hoping the stripes would do a little camouflage to the tummy area and it does one better. The mitered stripes and point on the cape contrasting against the horizontal stripe on the bodice work together to make it look like I have a waist! The slight a-line just helps keep the illusion going and balances my top and bottom. It's like magic! My favorite thing I've purchased this year. I tried leaving one arm out with the other side up and I like it that way too (just be prepared for the cape to go a little off center). You will absolutely want to have this in multiple colors.
This dress is amazing. It is one of the most flattering dresses I have ever worn. The fabric is very think and drapes perfectly. I ordered the Navy in a small - I am 5'7" and weigh 138. I have a large chest and not the flattest stomach - this dress would look good on anyone - but it is long so if you are on the shorter side you have to wear high heel. I really want to order this dress in more colors - I am just trying to decide which color since it is a lot of dress with the drape in the front. I am glad I did not order the medium because I like how it fits slim through the hips.
I actually really like this dress. Although, at first I wasn't sure what I thought. I am 5 5, 125, bought it in a small and it hits the ground which I love and fits my curves perfectly. I hate the way it looks when worn close to the neck; however, off shoulders it does look really nice. You can also wear one should up and one shoulder half down or one arm completely out. You can also wear it as a strapless, and that might be my favorite look! It feels like a good quality fabric, heavier than just cotton. So many options with this one, I highly recommend! And Zappos, your quick delivery can never be beat!
What a comfortable dress, it can be dressed up or worn casual. I'm 5'8 and 170 lbs. and the large fits perfectly. Flattering in the right places and covers up the tummy area. I plan to buy another one in a different color, because when it's gone I'm going to wish I had more. Other good reviews is why I bought it and I'm glad I did.
This dress is amazing! I would normally wear an xl so ordered accordingly. A little big but not much, the material is super soft too. I wore to a wedding and it was perfect! Can absolutely be dressed up or down!
