I bought this dress for my Son's wedding, but when it arrived the zipper was defective. I was unable to try dress on as the zipper only came down 2-3 inches to where it was split. I did try on the jacket, seemed to be true to size. Too bad there seems to be a problem with defective zippers as noted in a few other reviews. Cute dress for the price, but usless.
I was skeptical about purchasing a dress online but I was getting desperate since it is so hard to find petite long dresses in the store. ( I did spend 2 days shopping at big stores and boutiques) After reviewing peoples' reviews, I decided to get it in my true size (6P), the dress fit like a glove! All it needed was alteration in the hem. I would purchase this brand again and not have second thoughts.
I LOVE this dress & jacket! I may turn the hem up an inch since I am 5'2" and I like my dresses to be a bit shorter than this one although the length on this dress comes to the middle of my knee which some ladies may prefer. This dress will go anywhere...office, dinner, theater, church, funeral, you name it. Need I say more? Kathy Age: Over 60 Style: Classic and Bling
I was disappointed that the 10 Petite did not fit me. That is usually the size I wear. I couldn't even get the dress zipped up! I have noticed that Jessica Howard dresses usually run small.
