I was hesitant to order a dress I hadn't tried on but the reviews seemed pretty good! I am 5'4 and a size 12/14 and this dress fits great! I ordered a large! The fabric is so soft and I have received a ton of compliments on it!
I had high hopes after getting a Pop Sugar app notification. and reading the Amazo. reviews that this was a great deal. I was really disappointed when I received it. It feels like there is an elastic band at the empire bust position. I’m 5’7” and it drags on the floor. Feels like a flimsy t-shirt. I returned item.
The hem on this was at least one inch longer on one side of the dress, which was very obvious when I was standing, and proved to be true when I took the dress off and folded it in half lengthwise. Definitely returning and not buying another.
I previously purchased the white floral version of this dress so knew what to expect material-wise. Thin, but very soft and comfortable. I'm 5'5 and the length was perfect. I know that these are Chinese knock-offs, and that I wouldn't be getting the dress they picture, but I expected a closer match than this! Ugly, bright colors and cartoonish looking print. Take a look for yourself! Amazon offers free returns, thankfully, and I returned this one. Your mileage may vary depending on the color you order... just don't expect to get exactly what you see pictured!
Again - pockets on dresses only work if the material is structured or if you have no hips. Otherwise you're adding material to your widest point. This dress is made of a cheap, thin, slinky material so the pockets wind up looking like wads of fabric sitting at your hips. It isn't cute. The material also highlights any texture on your body - which can be unflattering in the wrong light. Had to return - you can get better quality for a similar price at Target.
I don't really know how to rate this dress because while it was a nice fit and flattering, it smelled really awful. Not your typical "new clothes" smell but some sort of weird smell that I can't describe. It kind of makes me worried about what sort of chemicals they used for the dye. I thought one wash would get rid of it, but I have washed it at least three times now and let it hang to air out, and the smell is still noticeable. I can't even return it now because of course I had to remove the tags, etc. to wash it.
Overall, nice fabric. Beautiful color. I am 5'9 with a 34" inseam and it was perfect with a pair of flats. I wear a medium and I ordered a large (unsure of sizing) and I could have went with the normal medium, no need for sizing up. It felt great and soft. Now to the reason for the 2 rating...I always check for color fastness prior to including new clothing into the laundry; and it is a good thing I did, I washed and washed by hand (which seemed like forever) - and the color was constantly bleeding, after about the 5th application of soap my husband said, "Through it in the trash", it is not worth it, and reluctantly so I did. Although, I was going to wash this in the machine, it would have been a HUGE mistake. I am very displeased with the product for this reason only. I ordered the "Wine Red", so I can not speak about color bleed in other colors; however, I would caution you to conduct a test for color bleeding prior to potentially damaging an entire load of clothes.
I really liked this dress! The fabric is really soft! But the top was see through! And the skirt part was heavy so it pulled on the bodice... I am 5.4 and around 165 and got a medium it fit well other than being too long and see through and pulling a little odd on the top... ended up returning it. I would say give it a try! I mean for different body types it could work! And is lovely feeling... and free returns so why not!
I have ordered this dress twice; both times the stitching was messed up/exposed in different places on the dress. The sleeves were not the same size. Also, the material is thinner than another rayon/spandex I have so you can see every line (under clothing & body shaping) under the dress much more easily. Bad quality. Bummed because I really like these dresses.
This dress smells weird. It has a chemical, almost cigarette smoke smell. Other reviews say the same and that the smell does not wash out, so I will be returning this dress. I am disappointed because it is very pretty and fits perfectly.
