Also, if you are larger on top in the chest or arms you may want to size up as it is a little tight and very fitted. It’s started to pill a little on the sides from my arms rubbing, but at 50 bucks, it was a good buy for all the use I’ve gotten out of it. another win from store I’m just about 5’10” and I got a Medium for Christmas. I love the versatility of this piece. I will definitely be buying from here again. Also, it has pockets which makes it even more awesome. I ordered a size up because I was concerned about the fit, but when I tried it on it was kind of baggy. First I was hesitant to buy something because I live in Europe and was scared that if the dress didn’t fit it would be too expensive to ship it back…but luckily, it fit just right. I ended up going with a medium and I am thrilled with it! The color didn’t work for me and it made me look (extra) hippy. I absurdly love this dress. The pockets are probably my favorite part of this dress. As it runs big from 1x-4x I sized down from my usual 2x. I first saw it when it was out of stock and as soon as it came back in, I grabbed it! (I matched it to a Pantone 511 C, for you graphic design nerds out there :)The brass buttons are a cute touch, and the dress held up well during its first wash (by machine, cool dry). Not a lot of wrinkling either. I just received this piece from my best friend and it is perfect. I’m 5’3, 105, 32B, and the small fits beautifully! It was too big in the waist, and too small in bust. This dress RUNS SMALL. Unfortunately, this dress was not made for busty ladies. With the extra length I’m much more comfortable and it’s my favorite dress. For those of you looking to buy, I’m a pear shape who wears a size 16 in pants and a size 12-14 on top and the 1X fit pretty good. For the price this can’t be beat – am seriously considering buying in other colours. I’d say the purple is a little more brilliant in person than in this picture.I’m 5’5″, 125 lbs, a 34C, and I got a medium, which fits very well. This dress really is better in person… It’s a tricky one. I’m short so the arms are cut wide for my frame and the length looks matronly on me.
It’s snug in the top, and a smidge short, in my opinion. The pockets on the sides have been said to flare out, but it actually helps my lack of hips and makes me look more shapely. very comfortable and festive over the holidays This dress is so classy. This is a comfy dress and “looks comfy” in person, so it is not quite as formal as it appears. Also, feel free to throw it in the washer, this particular dress has been worn and washed numerous times (it’s now feb of 2013 and I bought it oct of 2011…yes I know I’m a bit delayed in the review :-)after all those wears and washings it still looks great! This was my first purchase from store and this dress is perfect. Love the pockets. Read all the reviews and decided to order this dress to try. I combined it with a sheer black sleeve top and a pair of sheer leggings and I will be fashionably set for fall/winter season! Love wearing it with thick tights and boots in the Australian winter. Fabulous dress! The only drawback is that the length is a little shorter than I usually wear. LOVE this dress. So sad this has to go back. Otherwise it looks great on me and I would be much happier with it. First purchase from here and I’m extremely happy about it. Love the dress. I loved the color and the weight of the material. So cute! I added a belt to give it some structure but it’s really bothering me how large it is. I’m very happy with the dress and can’t wait to wear it to work. It’s cute and comfortable. Best of all: pockets! It was too small for me but the tucked in area was about waist area and the darts were at that line. love the fit. Still one of my favorites. If you are moderately tall, this dress will be on the short side. I ordered the S based on prior reviews about fullness of the skirt.
Not see through though! Looks good with solid color belts too. The only thing is that, because I am so curvy, the waist sits right under my breasts and I can’t button up the buttons, but I just wear a little black tank top underneath and it’s fine. It fits and flatters even an extreme hourglass shortie like myself. A little cheap with the fabric, but I am determined to get my big butt into this one. I would recommend this dress overall, assuming the zipper flaw was random. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DRESS SO MUCH I BOUGHT IT IN 3 DIFFERENT COLORS. I love this dress! I guess an easy solution to that is to add a thick white ribbon. Fit is great. It felt well, and was very flattering. I hope not.It looks better with a wide, red patent leather belt and wear peep toe pumps. I’m a dress size 4 and the small fit me perfectly. I’m really disappointed! it doesn’t breathe at all. This dress was way bigger and longer than I thought it would be. All I can say is what an utter disappointment this dress is! It was a huge hit. (For anyone needed more measurements to go off of, my full bust is 41 inches.) Material weight is a little heavy, perfect for early spring and fall. As I’m not the best person to see/judge, I’m going to go with my friends opinions (plural) that it makes my butt look really big Great flattering dress!!! Love these dresses! If it was more fitted in the hip I think I would love it. It is a must have. I’m praying that size S won’t be too big! Overall: the material feels nice, the fit is flattering, and I really love wearing it. Didn’t like the way it looked on me. This is gorgeous. I got a ton of compliments on it and was comfortable and WARM at the wedding reception I wore it too.
but is shows a good figure.ill probably shop with store again,the prices should be a lil more compromising! The cap sleeves fit funny. I was just slightly disappointed with this dress. I just can’t win with this dress. Winner. I’m so thankful for all the reviews on this dress — I usually wear a 12 or 14 in dresses, but I bought a 1X because I was a DD when I was dress shopping. I have no complaints about the zipper, in fact, I didn’t even realize there was one until I was taking putting it in the wash. I am contemplating getting it in another color, but since I wear this one all the time am worried it will be too obviously the same. Might have to try again when the XL is back in stock. Add leggings, boots and a cardi for cooler weather. Seeing that this fabric was slightly stretchy, I opted for a 2X, which turned out to be the right decision. The buttons kept unbuttoning though, because the buttons were too small for the button hole. Smiles, A Very Satisfied Customer Very comfy, material is very soft, fits a bit snug. That said, I’m sure I can layer underneath the dress this way for a warmer fall/winter look. Nothing a little DIY tailoring can’t fix. The color, fit, length and the feel.. Great job store! Love the color. The material is a bit cheap though. I’m just not a fan of that. I have received so many compliments on it. I want to love this dress, but I can only like it. it’s the perfect length. then i saw that this was put on SALE! I’ll be waiting for the next time the style goes on saleâ€”I’d love it in more colors! The pockets are great and finding a dress with pockets in and of itself is like finding the holy grail. I absolutely love this dress. Vibrant color and love the pockets.
I much preferred the version with the pockets on the outside, but the dress is still cute. The color isn’t as perfect a “true” red as it looks online – depending on the light, it sometimes has a slight pick tint to it, but it’s pretty mild. Super cute! I bought this dress thinking it would fit me really good because it had a bit of stretch to it. If you’re of average height it will probably be just fine in the length. This dress fit perfectly, including in the chest which I was worried about since I’m busty. Very nice fit through the bust and waist, with just enough wiggle room to be comfortable. It has 2 pockets on the side and it flares out the skirt line a bit. The material was a bit thicker than I thought it would be, but because of the collar I bought it with the intention of making it my holidays dress so the thick material won’t be a problem, it just limits usage during other seasons. i LOVE this dress. It kind of wrinkle in my case. I’m 5’5″ and the length is great for work. I was worried that the capped sleeves would make me look like i have football shoulders, but they do not at all. Overall it makes a nice waist, especially with the belt. I wish I hadn’t the large would probably have fit better. The length hit just below my knees. My only complaint is that the bust area runs small. The cut is lovely and the colour is vibrant !!! Overall the dress is very pretty though. I’m a C cup and sometime the buttons to the top don’t stay closed or look strained , so I just wear it with a tank underneath. However, no such problems! I ordered the large (I’m normally a medium, but Large was all that was left) and it fits like a dream! Before I even tried it on one of the neck buttons fell off, but I sewed it back on and it’s fine now. The size was too big! So cute – perfect for the office or a party! Ah well! Will pair with red heels and a red clutch. This one had to go back.
The day my dress came, I screamed with joy. Lovely dress. This one is great! I mean, come on! So I waited and waited and eventually that particular color went away I decided to go for the red dress and when I got it, I fell in love. Or….lose the tights and sleeves and rock wedges and a light cardigan. I’m very tempted to buy another color/pattern! Beautiful red dress! This dress is adorable. I felt frumpy and dumpy – and I’m not! I highly recommend it. The color is beautiful but the fit is off. Very nice fit through the bust and waist, with just enough wiggle room to be comfortable. My husband said it look like my hips had sprouted wings. But, it was perfect. The length on my 5’3″ frame reaches a respectable inch or so above my knees. My favorite purchase so far from store. I’m a big girl, but most dresses I’ve gotten from dept. I ordered a small yellow one and a medium purple one for sizing, and they both fit just fine. Color is nice though. I’ve exchanged it for my actual size (L). As I live in the tropics of Australia having a loose fitting garment felt better and looked good. Buy the magic dress! Definitely needs to be ironed after every wash though. I love this dress. It fits well in the bust, and falls evenly (which was also a problem with my last dress). Now that I have it, I’m a little disappointed. I’ve worn this dress multiple times, you can tell it’s one of my favorites.
It is beautifully made but it isn’t a 2x by any means. It’s the same material as the Soda Fountain dress I already owned. But I’ve tried it on a couple of times. I did wear a slip. The zipper is very flimsy so becareful zipping it up or down, it gets caught easily on the fabric and I may replace it just so it doesn’t break. The length and modest neckline are work-appropriate, but I would feel comfortable wearing this out as well. Sadly had to send this back too along with another item. Thank you! I sent it back for an exchange, so hopefully the new one will arrive without the defect. It has held up really well, though the bust does run a little small. Very happy with my first store purchase! Will need ironed. I bought this dress for Halloween, my husband and I dressed up as a couple from the 1940’s for a party at the studio where we take dance lessons. It was a little snug in the chest but not too bad. The length was perfect! I love this dress. It’s been a long time since a dress has made me look and feel this cute. I got the dress today in the mail and the fit was good. I do have somewhat athletic upper arms, so this probably won’t be an issue for most. I love this dress! I’m sad to send it (and the Hepcat in Cherry that came at the same time) back, but some other woman can rock this dress in my place. I may have to wear an under shirt so no one can see my bra. I love it and I can’t wait to wear it in public. The buttons do pull a little in the chest area but not so badly that they can’t be left done up. There are many things to love about this dress- it is very flattering to curves and is youthful but tasteful enough to wear to my job as a teacher. The fabric is light and comfortable and the dress otherwise fits like a dream. Looks great with red shoes. I had been standing up there for 20 minutes for the ceremony and don’t know how long my bra was on display.
Very cute. Can’t wait to wear this with my black patent pumps! I wear a size 18, 5’9″ and am quite muscular. I have an unfortunately large bust and the buttons aren’t exactly sturdy so they tend to pop open and create a much raunchier look than I’m going for! its just cheap feeling. I love the retro look and the fit-and-flare style. For $50 I’m not fixing a mistake, so I am going to have to send it back. Love it… The cut is lovely, just as I imagined. The classic cut and light cottony fabric of this make it one of my favourites, and it never fails to draw a compliment. very cute dress! I LOVE this dress!!! I ordered this dress in a 3X, and while it mostly fits well there are a few aspects which are not ideal: the sleeves in this size aren’t so much little caps as big puffs, which is not ideal in my size! This dress makes my chest look great–I can button it most of the way for a modest look or leave a few undone for a little va-va-voom. 😀 I love this dress. My only concern was it pulls at the bust some, but otherwise it’s a perfect dress!! Can easily be dressed up or down…considering getting it in another color! I can wear it to work or out on a date with my hubby or to the mall for a day of shopping! I love this dress. I wore black leggings and a black sweater when it was cold, and black ankle booties sans the leggings when it was warm enough. Better in some ways. Although the fabric is a little heavy for warm weather, I’ve worn it a couple times this summer and it hasn’t been too bad. The dress falls in such a perfect way that masks any tummy issues.I am a very tall curvy person and this hit in all the right places. I’m thinking spearmint next… Extremely comfortable and easy to move around in. I love the fit and the color. Also, WASH the dress before wearing. I have wanted one of these dresses for a while since they are so raved about.
its perfect for the holidays or at work. Now I want it in every color! nice heavy material, not the most flattering on big bust I’m kinda hippy, so could’ve gotten extra large (as I did with the Houndstooth version) – I also have it in Spearmint. The fabric is nice and thick, so it works well as a winter dress with some tights and a sweater, or a summer dress with some flats! Absolutely perfect! it was a little longer than i thought but thats just because I’m not as tall but overall I loved the dress Love how the dress falls on me. I’ve worn it for work, school, and dates and someone always has something nice to say about it. I ordered the black first in a medium but it turned out to be a little bit big on me so I ordered the red in a small instead and it fits perfectly. This might work in my favor though, it seems like the type of fabric to stretch a bit over time.All in all, it’s a very comfortable, pretty, and practical dress. I guess if you are bigger in the chest area then the pleats do not show as much, however, I am only 32B so the pleats were a little more obvious and baggy looking, but it didn’t bother me enough to return the dress. I would probably hand wash in cold water, by itself 😛 To sum it up, I am extremely happy with my purchase! A darker red than in the photos, but still very nice. The waist hits perfectly at my natural waistline (I have a short torso) but it’s probably more empire on others, and there’s room to stretch on top for bustier ladies (probably perfect for a C cup). i got so many compliments on this the first time i wore it. This was a gift for my daughter and it was perfect. This dress is so cute! I didn’t realise the neckline wasn’t sewn in place – I’m a little worried it will flap everywhere but a small press stud will fix that, and from trying it on it seems to sit pretty well.The waist is huge. Totally happy from this purchase! I would definitely recommend this dress! Couldn’t be happier with it It’s ok but I’m not in love. This is my new favourite dress! The first store purchase I didn’t need to return! I frequently pair it with lace up boots, tights, and a cardigan. My husband even said it look like my hips had sprouted wings. I’ll probably eventually sew the pocket closed. The dress is a little on the large side. The color is what you see on the website. I am 5’3″ and fluffy, but this skimmed past all my problem spots…
The stretchy material looks flattering, even though it runs a little small in the waist. Don’t know if that means it now DOESN’T come in an XL, or they will not be getting any more – very disappointing. Personally I don’t mind this but I bought it for $34, it’s not worth much more than that. Although some reviewers suggested wearing the front open with a cami underneath, I don’t think it looks as cute that way. It’s worth a try to see if it works for you! Love it. Also note that if you wear this with tights, you must wear a slip under it. I was just slightly disappointed with this dress. So classic and versatile. And it does run right in the bust area and tummy. This is a really sweet dress. I love this dress! I initially ordered medium, but I could not zip up so I replaced with large. Pros: so so flattering! Not what I expected quality wise-didn’t fit this dress is super cute and very comfortable Had to rerun It was a cute dress. It’s really tight in the chest, and I have tiny boobs! Way too busty for a medium, the buttons were about to burst off, okay dress but not very flattering fabulous! Terrific interview dress! Lands right at my knees while standing, so sitting down or bending over is not at all a hazard. Going up a size is fine because the belt helps cinch the waist. It is a classic. If they had 4X I would of ordered that. Still a nice dress and I wear it fairly often! Ladies, unless you like having the ‘girls’ hanging out there, or like to wear tank tops/camisoles under your dresses, size up. It has a side zip, so maybe this is why, but if the zip was moved to the back (maybe as a key-hole zip) then pockets could be easily incorporated. The only thing is that the buttons pop open, but I’m not small-chested. Perfect for any occasion. Happened to be wearing it when my fiance proposed to me and the pics turned out great!
