To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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 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!
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.
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.
The print design is beautiful and the dress fits well enough (I don’t like the pocket bulge on the sides but to each their own.) The dealbreaker is that the design is printed on top of the finished dress rather than using colored thread to make the fabric. This means that anywhere the fabric stretches over a body curve or at a seam, the white sides of the threads shows through. My whole chest area looked light gray in this black dress, it was laughably unwearable in public, even though I have a smaller chest. And you can’t even fix it by wearing black underneath because the white threads would still be on the top layer. I returned it.
Very pretty dress; but, it’s ridiculously long. I’m 5’ 4”, weigh 137lbs, & wear a 38c bra. So I have to order a size large so the material isn’t too stretched across my bust. The dress fits great except for the length. It’s at least 6” too long. I’ve bought many of this style dress on Amazon & have never run into something this long. It’s a simple, inexpensive dress. It doesn’t make sense to spend at least $20 to hem it. It’s a shame because tI is otherwise well made & the print is lovely. If you’re tall, I’d definitely recommend it. But unless you’re planning on wearing platform sandals or stiletto heels, this is not the dress for women under 5’7”.
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 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.
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'm 5'4' and this dress went over my feet. Would be better for a taller person. I'm also a bigger woman. I used to be a size 28 the. Dropped to a 12 and I'm now a 16 after 3 kids. I have extra skin around the bottom of my stomache from weight loss. I was really hoping I would be able to wear this comfortably and not be too self conscience about my stomache but when I knotted it so I could walk without it dragging, it made it to where the dress showed the part of the stomache I wanted to hide the most. The dress its self though was a sturdy fabric, opaque and sewn well. Just didn't work for my body type.
