Under your US sizing chart I'm listed as a US size 10 but when you convert it to Australian size (where I'm from) it comes out as a size 14. Whereas I'm usually a size 10-12 in Australia. Does this brand follow your Overstocks US sizing chart closely? Laura

Love thus dress! Perfect length, perfect fit, and very complimentary, I want one in every colorRead More
I really wanted to like this dress. It's so cute! When I tried it on, it was a no go. First, the fabric is clingy. It's not horrible, but I'd be more likely to wear this if I had 2% body fat. Second, the pleats are really unflattering in the back. The position of where they start really accentuates any booty you have. If you're a fit athlete with a non existent booty, this dress is for you. Alas, that's not me.Read More
This is a very pretty dress and is well made. It works well for either day or evening look. I purchased the black one, now I think I'll get the red one as well.Read More
Dress looks really good , and fits good.Read More
I ordered the brown for work. Love the look and feel. Hangs beautifully! The only thing maybe a little off, the dress is slightly short waisted, if you have a long torso, this dress would not be for you.Read More
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. It is super comfortable. It fits perfectly. It is a nice weight so that it does not feel like a cheap dress, but does not weigh so much that it is uncomfortable. It looks great, I get compliments every single time I wear it. BUT it says that it is machine washable. I do not recommend that because I have washed and dried it less than a handful of times and the pleats are already starting to come out. I would suggest dry cleaning it. I am contemplating just replacing this dress because it is one of my favorites and I am not sure how much of a hassle it will be to have the pleats re-set.Read More
Great rich color, not too bright, not too dark. I get tons of compliments. Great for travel, doesn't wrinkle. Not super high quality material, but wonderful for the price. Someone told me it looked like a dress Kate Middleton would wear.Read More
snap up front. midweight. color true to pix. just below the knee. sturdy seams. a bit roomy, wondering if I could've gone a size smaller...Read More
I love this dress! It's comfortable, flattering, and stylish. I must have received dozens of compliments when wearing this dress. I got the dress in chocolate (I love browns) but I wasn't crazy about the color (it looks kind of muddy for lack of a better description). Other than that, the dress is so wonderful I came back to buy it in another color! I was worried that it might be too low cut for work, but it was perfect!Read More

Best Dresses for Petite Women
If you are petite, finding clothing that fits correctly is essential. Petite apparel prevents you from looking boxy or drowning in too much fabric and ensures a fit that flatters your body. Shopping for petite clothing will help you find the right sizes with all the fashionable options as other departments. The best dresses for petites are easy to find with a few simple guidelines. V-necks draw the eye up toward the face. V-necks are flattering for all types of women, since they show off the neck and encourage the appearance of a long, lean body. Petite dresses that have a V-neck also create a vertical line and give the impression that you are taller. Look for petite clothing that allows you to play with accessories and show them off. For an evening look, pair the V-neck with layers of necklaces to look glamorous. Find knee-length dresses to flatter your legs. As a petite woman, flowing long dresses may cause you to look smaller. When more leg is showing, you will appear taller. A flattering petite dress is hemmed at the knee or just above the knee. Pair a petite dress with heels and your legs will appear long and lean. Don't go much shorter than slightly above the knee, since it may be inappropriate for work or more elegant parties. Select petite apparel that hits at the right length and is flattering to your curves. Vertical designs will elongate your body. Look taller by finding dresses that have a vertical design. Dresses that have vertical stripes create the illusion that there is more length. On the other hand, dresses that have too many patterns or colors may cause petite women to appear smaller. A simple dress is flattering, whether it's one solid color or contains a subtle pattern. Petite women can use a wide belt at the waist in the same color as the dress. Using a belt in a different color may cause you to look shorter, in addition to cutting your appearance in half at the waist.
