This dress is very flattering but it did run big. I normally wear a 6 or 8 so I ordered the medium for myself. Luckily I ordered a small for my college age daughter as well. The medium was loose and unflattering on me so I tried the small and it looked great. I have broad shoulders so I almost never fit into a small. I decided this was a great look for me but that my daughter would not like it so I kept her size small and am sending back the medium. I love the sleeve length and the V neck. It all comes together in a classy yet flattering way.

I love this fun, casual dress. I love the contrast between the black and white. It is casual enough for daytime wear, but can be paired with pretty jewelry and a wrap for evening. It can be a great travel dress because it can be packed in a suitcase and the wrinkles fall out when hung up on a hanger.

Once I had the proper undergarment ($30 Slip) for this green dress, it was great. However, between the cost of the two items Im not really sure if it's worth it. Perhaps the darker colors wouldn't require a slip. I am 5'6, 140lbs with a very curvy figure and the small was perfect. I would say everyone needs to order a size down, I would have been swimming in a medium. I was slightly disappointed in some of the construction--many loose strings and folded ends on the waist tie. Also, LEAVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO GET THE WRINKLES OUT!!! Even after washing it, the wrinkles were still there. Being that I was away from home and didn't trust the sketchy iron I had available I had to just rock the wrinkles......not fun. Overall, get dress if you know what you're getting.
I really like the pattern of this dress, especially in black and white. The overall cut is very flattering. The fabric is flowing, cheap polyester. It's a little see-through, but the pattern kind of hides that fact.
It was assembled haphazardly without attention to detail. The stripes around the waist and cuffs would look really good, if they were cut in line with the stripes. Instead, the fabric was cut unevenly all over the stripes. The wave affect around the waist and hem are all you see and makes the dress look cheap. I really like this dress, but the uneven stripes all around take away a lot of points.
I will probably return the dress for this reason alone. I don't think I'd order another because there's no guarantee the next one will be cut straight. I'd have to see a rack of them in person and find the best one.
