Split Apart Oh My
About Me Casual Dresser
Comments about Woman Within Embroidered short sleeve crinkle dress:
Only wore this twice and washed it. Could not believe the entire upper front just split open like in the Alien movie. Sure hope you guys don't sell us more of this kind of quality. I think we should all be reimbursed for this defective and inferior dress. What a waste of money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My Favorite Dress
from Troy, IL
This is really a great dress! It is light and comfortable. It stretches slightly after wearing for a short while, which I like. It is easy to care for. I do wash in cold water and hang to dry. We've had some very hot and humid days this summer, and this dress is just so comfortable and cool that I wish I had more! I am 5'7 and it is a good length for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Did not wear the dress and considered it a waist of money. The center lace fell apart when I rinsed it and laid it out to dry. The hemline and under skirt was uneven.

I guess, it was improved (I mean< the dress' quality): there is a wonderful under-dress body-cover, but I need to worry you that 18W means REALLY 18W!!! When I use 16 or 18, I got a full 20W:-)I will exchange to a smaller size (would it be "M"? LOL - this is the BIGGEST PROBLEM FOR THE NEWCOMERS - TO REALIZE THAT THIS SITE IS REALLY FOR OUR PLUS SIZES!:-)

Not For Me
from U.P. of MI
About Me Classic Dresser
I am returning this dress. I am 5'3 and it just covered my knees. I was expecting it to be mid-calf at least, as it is on the model, who is much taller than I am. It wasn't very flattering on me and the hem line was very uneven, with threads hanging. I did like the drawstring that allowed me to pull the waist in, but the waistline was above my waistline by a couple of inches. The fabric was just okay, but it was lined.
Nice and Comfortable
By T Ireland
from New Orleans, LA
I've worn this dress to work on casual days as well as on days off. I love that it is so lightweight and cool because I live in New Orleans where it is hot and humid. My only concern about this dress was that I was fooling with velcro one day and accidentally got it stuck on the embroidery of the dress. It pulled a little bit... but that was my goof.

Looks like I'm not the only one
from Tulsa, OK
Looks like I'm not the only one who had trouble with this dress. It split in front right on the lacy part. At least I got to wear it a couple times before it split, but what a waste. Beware.
Not quite right
This item is okay but not as comfortable as I expected for a casual dress
comfy and nice

Horrible Piece of Junk
By Summer gal
The fabric split neck to waist when I washed it before ever wearing it (short gentle cycle, cool water, lay flat to dry). See photo below. I wanted to love it. It looked cute on, was cool, pretty, light--perfect for summer. I didn't get to wear it even once. The fabric split and was not repairable. (I'm a fairly good seamstress). Just don't buy this dress. BELIEVE every poor review posted. I wish I had. I'm returning it.

Sleeves too short and narrow, dress is skimpy
from Fayetteville, NC
About Me Trendy/Stylish Dresser
I read another review of this dress which stated that the sleeves were too short and not full enough. I wish I had heeded that review and had not ordered it. In fact, I ordered TWO (one in each color). I am sending them back. There are other problems with these dresses: "ivory" color is almost "tell-tale yellow," the embroidery is colored differently than in the picture (it's brown and orange!), and the cut of the dress is skimpy. The dress looks cheap overall. I didn't expect great things, but this is ridiculous!
Good for the Desert
from Rancho Mirage, CA
Good dress for hot weather. I hope it doesn't shrink because it looks polished for casual comfort.

I really like this one.
Love the way this dress looks on me. It is a little short on a tall person. You do need to put on a slip if you are concern about the thin material that it is made out of. It is still a cute dress and a little figure flattering if you are thick in the stomach area. In other words, it makes the belly area appear smaller.
from Manassas, VA
I would have worn it to church and other places for dress. Just didn't like the color combination and how it hung on me.

Pretty but disposable
By Trendy chick
When washed the first time, by the suggested direction, the bodice frayed and came apart at the seam in the center front between the embroidery and ravelled out to a point it can't be mended.

Does not look like what was being sold
from St Louis Mo
The dress I received looked nothing like this. the sleeves are very short, not elbow length. the dress looks like a mini, and I am short.

Got this in the Navy color...Very Nice...For those of you who know your Fabrics..., this is Crinkled Rayon... with a Cotton Lining....,So should be nice for Summer...I just received this, and since I always wash things before wearing them, I popped this into the washing machine and washed on the Hand-wash cycle...When getting it out it looked as if it had shrunk, but I know that Rayon usually does not shrink..., so I stretched it out, since it seemed like the "Crinkle" fabric had gotten More crinkled..., so then I popped it into the Dryer for 3 or 4 minutes to "Fluff" it, then took out and Hung it up to Air-dry... Stretching it out again.., I looks like it's back to the right size, but haven't worn it yet..., so maybe need to do another review later... But thought you might like a heads-up...But overall, I am thrilled with this Dress..., very nice embroidery...and, I Love woven Rayon.., it's cool, not clingy, and has a nice drape... Always keeping my eye open for woven Rayon (the woven kind with no stretch..., Even tho it has to be carefully laundered, it's worth the extra care that it takes...!!!)
