I love this dress, the fabric is of a heavier material so its ideal for the cooler days of fall. The sizing seems a bit off though. I am 5'2" and this dress goes to my knee, someone who is taller might find it on the short side. The top was very baggy, I took it in a good inch and a half on either side and I am by no means small across the chest. Once I took it in I was very happy with it, it fit nicely. It seems to wash well, I did not put it into the tumble dryer as I was worried it might shrink and be too short. It did not need ironed which is always a plus.
Wrap did not lay as projected, sized too small
from Vinita, OK
Lap-over puckered & exposed breast. Sized too snug.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
NOT what I'd imagined!
By g'ama looks so silly
from Milwaukee, WI
Not having worn it previously, I found it was embarassingly short and form-fitting (which a plus-size person, such as I am, is NOT what I'd wanted!
So I bought this for myself. But my daughter needed a dress for something and I suggested she 'TRY ON" this dress and see how it fit her. She loved it and has since stole it from me. I wanted it for myself (nice summer style). But this is my life with an adult daughter living back home and wears the same size. She steals my clothes that she likes. But the best is... her friends and coworkers are always complimenting her on MY clothes. Guess I'm not to bad at picking out stylish things for all generations huh?
Soft and form fitting!
from Lanark IL
This is such a all round dress, summer casual to dress up wedding dress, to date night or a stroll downtown. Wear flats or heels I love this material it's super soft and figure flattering at the same time. Love this dress, that loves your curves!
TOO BIG IN BUST & NARROW IN HIPS
By Carrie H
from San Diego
After trying it on, I realized that I would have to do a number of alterations to make the top smaller and it wasn't worth the effort. I returned it a couple of weeks ago, but don't see a credit yet. The body portion was very restrictive. I think they need to adjust their sizing for this pattern.

Nice fit. Nice pin keeps bodice closed. Comfortable fit. Great length. Material just a bit heavy for southern summers but love the dress.
from Las Vegas NV
This dress is made of a heavy fabric. I will be able to wear it in during the late fall, winter and in the Spring. However unable to wear it during the summer, as it get too hot here in the desert.
Simple and lovely
from Des Plaines
I was looking for a comfortable cotton dress to wear to an outdoor wedding during the summer. I chose this lovely dress. The dress looks so nice in the pictures, fits true to size with an exception, is mostly comfortable and a good length. The problems I had with the dress are-too roomy in the bust (I have to pin it in place),the fabric waist band is snug(can't eat a big meal while wearing this dress),my dress had pleating above and below the fabric waist(emphasized my full abdomen) front did not lay flat even with pinning. This cute dress did not work out very well for me.
Good fabric, nice style, huge top
from Monterey Bay, CA
I ordered a size that matched the measurements on the website. I liked the fact that it fit around the armholes (I hate the drooping armhole that forces you to wear a cami). It fit under the bust, was a nice knee length, and had a medium weight that didn't wrinkle. It is very well made. But the material that crossed over the chest was WAY TOO big. I am busty, but I could have carried a couple of cantaloupes in there as well. I needed the dress for a trip, so I cut away lots of the material and sewed in back in, created darts, and gathered to make it fit. I don't get why the under bust fit and the top was so loose and huge. I wouldn't order this again.

This dress is very cute but as it is snug in the waist, it is not figure-flattering unless you are bone-skinny. I wear it around the house but would not want to be seen in it.

I loved this dress! I was worried it would be too short as I am a modest dresser and prefer a longer length, but this was great! I get so many compliments when I wear this dress - I am going to buy more colors! Keep the compliments coming!
Love the color and the fabric

Awkward fit and really bright color
from New York, NY
About Me Classic Dresser
The length of the dress was nice but there's way too much room in the bust even for me and I'm large-chested. the surplice bodice gaps badly and the color is much brighter green than the soft yellow-green that is pictured. It's really a bright lime green.
My Go-Too Dress to Look a Little Dressy
By Viking Irish
from Queens, New York
This suits my figure which is shapely but busty. So many things don't flatter a big bust but just make me look like a bale of hay. I've worn the navy twice and the pink once. I got compliments on both. I wish it came in more colors that suited me. A nice bright blue would be great. So would red.
Great dress for any occasion
from Northeast Massachusettes
About Me Trendy/Stylish Dresser
I really liked this dress. It does run true to size. I pinned the bust in the middle so it was straight and flat across and didn't gap at the breast. I get a lot of compliments on this dress, got it in 3 colors, got multiples to have in the future.
COOL AND FASHIONABLE
By Valley B
from Elkview, WV
I bought the Pink Orchid color and wore it to an outdoor wedding. This looked fashionable and was cool for a hot Spring day.
Pretty color (Orchid) ans Comfortable!
from Woodstock, CT.
AS I said --Pretty color--I got it in orchid--such a nice soft color! Do require a pin to keep the V neckline shut and lay flat,but other than that very comfortable!
Love this dress!
from SE, USA
This is a plain, simple crossover dress that can be worn as is. But it's simplicity is the real beauty. I got it in black. It can be dressed up for church, for a function, you name it, with shoes for the occasion and jewelry, scarf or kimono/pashmina. And you can keep going up from there. You can wear it with a pair of sandals or even flip flops, a straw hat and bag and you're good for the movies, dinner, shopping. The possibilities are endless. And the fit (1X)is perfect on my body. I highly recommend this dress. You'll be wearing it years from now.
Dotted swist dress
from Hardeeville, S.C.
I wear the dress around the house.
Love this dress
Love this dress - gave it 4 stars because it feels tight in bust area. I wear a 40D bra and i felt it was tight around this area - This is the reason Iam not giving it 5 stars.I ordered a size 1X -the dress is perfect fit in all other places. The fabric and color and softness is great
Short surpluses dress
By True BBW
This was for my daughter and she loved the dress, she is well endowed but with her tank top under it was perfect

I would Buy This Dress Again
By Marsha V.
from Anaheim, CA
This dress fits really well and is very figure flattering, actually is rather thinning.
The drees is a good deal
from Manati PR
This item come on time for mothers day
I really wanted this but...
from Atlanta, Ga.
This dress is pretty and I wanted it to work for me but it's way too big in the chest area and so it gaps open. I returned it. I would recommend to ladies who can pull off a bodice shaped like this one. I'm short, 5'2" and it felt too long on me also.
Pretty but runs small
from N E Ohio
This is not as roomy through the hips as I have come to expect from WW. Also, it is short, right on the knee and I am 5' 1". I kept it, it will be a great summer dress out on my own patio, but I am not sure I would wear it out and about. Beautiful 'sherbet' color!
from evansville, indiana
This is a nice dress. I got in the soft lime color, which is very pretty. It's very flattering, soft, very comfortable. The reason I gave it four stars is because I had to sew up the sides where the bust is because they were sticking out. I tested the dress out as to the "bending over" test. The dress does rise up almost to my rear end when bending down. I suggest anyone to do this when buying a shorter dress or skirt.
