I don't know, maybe I'm a cheapskate...but I had t buy this dress for a costume, so money was sort of no object for me. What I paid for it was definitely not worth the heavy tee-shirt material that arrived. I mean, it worked for my purposes (the costume), but I don't think I'd be happy if I paid for it myself to wear to a function. Also, the sleeves can't really roll up if it gets hot. Looks great, though!
The only bad review I see is from a man. With that said, I bought it in gray. It's not "cheap", it's sheer, slinky and clingy. I am tall and both the length and the sleeves are long enough for me. It needed some light ironing right out of the package. I wear it with a decorative scarf and boots to work. I recommend this dress and I plan to buy another one.
I ordered the 24/7 Comfort Apparel Women's Long Sleeve Empire Maxi Dress for me to wear at my daughter's wedding. I was disappointed that it came with part of right sleeve seam in the front coming undone. I didn't have time to send it back for another one in good repair and so I had to repair it myself. The wedding was a very busy time for me so this was a big inconvenience and a disappointment. I needed something I could depend upon and didn't get it.
I wore during the Holidays for our Church Christmas concert. I added a cinch belt in tan leopard the color of the dress was burgundy , it was comfortable and the belt gave it more style, and helped to shorten it as well. Great buy I wished it came in more colors. The fabric is soft and feels great on.
I love this dress , at last long sleeves for a tall lady .Comfy light fabric , long to my ankles ,just as I like it. After many disappointments with other dresses , I was thrilled to find what I was looking for . I'm ordering more in all the colors . Keep it up Overstock , give me more like this . **
WOW, just wow on the way this dress fits, drapes and looks. I am short 5'3", This is the perfect length for me I can wear with flats or boots! Since getting older and being on certain meds I have put on some weight. This dress maximizes the girls and minimizes the belly and hips. The weight of the dress helps keep you warm. It does not overheat you. Works great with spring weather cold in morning and warmer in the afternoon. This has definately become my go-to cool weather dress.
