Eh....

Comfortable and cute color, but a weird fit for me. Nothing special really. Wouldn't recommend it.

Comportable; maxi on petites

I loved this casual dress, which ended up being a maxi on my 5'2'' frame. The only thing I didn't like was that I felt the skirt really opened a lot when I walked or when I sat. I pinned it to keep it secure for work. But overall loved this dress.

Too big.

This dress was larger than I would like. It also is a fake wrap style and the slit in the front makes it so that your entire leg would or can show. Not sure I can wear this to work because of that. If it was a smaller size I might have liked it better.

Low Key Chic

A giant t-short dress that only reveals its elegance when worn, and your legs kind of peek through the wrap slit as you walk. I suspect it would be difficult to wear for someone under 5'6"

More casual than expected

I'm not crazy about this dress. It's made out of t-shirt material. I got complemented on it, but it was much more casual than I expected. The slit is really high so I had to hold down the front when I walked.

Marilyn Monroe showed less underwear

So much to love about this dress. Loved the t-shirt style top and the flowing bottom. Very comfy but not so much while walking. Not okay with undies on display with each step and had to hold over dress.

Casual t-shirt dress - wouldn't wear it out - but OK for beach or everyday.

Love the color but the dress is more casual than pictured. The cut is nice - but there's too much fabric in the skirt - I found it too heavy or awkward to belt. It wasn't very flattering on me - petite, small chest but pear shaped. I think it would be nicer for a taller or curvier/ bustier figure to add height to the fabric!

Classic and comfortable

Despite being t-shirt material I thought this was classy and elegant. I wore it to client meetings but tend to dressed more relaxed than most in general. The slit did open up on me a couple of times when the wind below, but it never got even close to showing my undies. It is so comfortable and a beautiful shape despite the material.

Fine if you’re not moving

I wore this dress to work. It was fine in the office all day, but once I got outside and walking, all the design flaws showed. This dress is an abomination in the street. The slit in the front goes all the way up, almost underwear level. Whenever even the SLIGHTEST gust of wind blew, the entire front of the dress would billow, exposing my entire right thigh almost to my underwear!! I ended up having to hold the dress down on both sides whenever I was walking around outside. So frustrating - I didn’t wear a maxi dress so I would have to worry about exposing myself all day. 3 stars for comfort when not moving. 0 stars for everything else.

Basic dress with good details

This dress is so comfortable. The slit and tie details give it enough so it isn't boring. I received several compliments when I wore it. The cut made me look longer/leaner.

Comfy and elegant

I really liked this dress. It was comfortable, yet still elegant enough for work and bar drinks. I replicate previous comments - the dress does flap open when walking. I paired mine with leggings, which actually looked really nice. Recommended
