I am a size S in women (size 4) in the mass majority of clothes. This S definitely runs a little large. It’s not too large, but a baggier item even per design of a “looser baggier” dress. The navy blue with white flowers: beware, the dress makes it look like the flowers are w nice bright crisp white, but they are very much off white/ beige. The navy dress is less attractive due to this (for my taste). I very well may return this style, due to the flowers making it look like a cheaper design for my style. I am keeping the cheetah print. Do I think it’s worth $30 after tax? No. This is a ROSS Store quality dress, and although not incredibly expensive, I’d say it could easily sell for $15. Greed is the name of the game here in the US. So we pay $30. I could get a high quality dress from Macy’s on sale for $30. ... $26+tax is not worth the dress. Pick your design carefully.
But I may wind up belting it. I am 5'2" and about 110 pounds and ordered a small. It is a bit shapeless. Length is great and the material/pattern is great. Probably should have ordered the XS. Cute dress and easy to dress up or down.
The length is nice, and so was the color. The fit was as expected. I was excited for this dress! However, the first one I received, the neckline was off. The V was off to the side and one side scooped out farther than the other. It fit really well, so I asked to exchange the dress. Unfortunately, I had the same problem with the second dress. The neckline was off again and the second dress was tighter around the hips, so the sizing must be a bit inconsistent. I’ll be returning it.
This review is for the yellow shift with large white flowers. This won’t work if you are shorter, and have a smaller frame or chest. It looked terrible on both myself 5’2” and my mother in law 5’3”. The neck opening was just too big and the shoulder was too wide. Also, the material for the yellow dress was very scratchy and cheap to us. I bought the dress in two other colors as well (bright blue and tropical flower foiliage) and the material for the yellow is not as nice. The other colors fit poorly as well. At this price range, I think I could do better buying from Nordstrom Rack.
The good things. Loved the style and the rich color and the expediency in which it arrived. Now, the not so good. I read all the reviews about size issues, took my measurements, used the manufacturer sizing chart and ordered as specified. I could barely get it over my head! These clothes that are manufactured in China are made for Chinese woman of much smaller stature than American woman. BELONGSCI needs to redo its patterns and take this into consideration. They wouldn’t get so many returns if they did. I have reordered two sizes larger, let’s hope it fits or it goes back too.
Ignore the dress sizes, and order a size up from the size chart measurements. I'm a 6/8 in lululemon and 6 in dresses and the M was too small, I could not zip it up. the waist and hips hit fine. I think I'm rather slender up top and it was just too big to zip at all. When I even tried, this pulled the arms too tight, and the sleeves looked like actual balloons. I returned the medium and hoping large fits well. It is polyester crepey type material so I don't think it would be good for like summer, but better for cooler temps or being indoors.
I gave it a 3 because once I paid $30 to fix it )which is more than I paid for the dress) it fit great and was comfortable. What irritated me was it had a small tear and the size differences between a large and xl are HUGE. The large was too tight in the butt and chest which made it way too short. So I had to hurry and re-order before my event but the XL went down to my knee and was sooo big everywhere else. I was able to have it taken in and hemmed and thank God she was able to put darts on the side the cover the hole that was there when it arrived. I guess you get what you pay for but made for quite a headache. However the material is not clingy and it was very comfortable once I fixed it. I would just be so happy if sellers would double check packages before shipping
This is a really nice little dress. The sleeves and top portion fit me really well but the mid section and hip area were really small. I usually wear a size 8/10 or medium but I'm having to go back for a large. The green color was exactly as shown in photograph and it's lined for a nice look. I hope the large works out.
It’s too bad the design is flawed, in that the seam of the lining goes right across the chest. It makes the dress look super wrinkled there. I’m disappointed because other than that, the dress was darling. I have to return it.
I tried 4 different colors/patterns of this dress and wanted to love it, but it's just a shapeless mass if you are curvy, and tailoring would cost more than the dress. If you are slimmer this would probably work, and if you can pull off a belt it will work for anyone, but I just found it meh. Also, a lot of stray threads. If this dress were just a tiny bit fitted I would get one in every color,
