I love this dress. It's well made with its own cotton under sheath. Light weight and feminine. Not made in China. I get so many compliments when I wear it. Easy to care for. I'm not fussy, so I don't iron them (I bought the same dress in two colors.) I just steam them a little. The sleeves are blouses and cover my batwings. And there 're nice deep pockets! Love them...
I normally live in overalls. Dresses have not been a part of my wardrobe for years. My 45th high school reunion made me want to try and wear something pretty. But, I have never had any fashion sense. I searched the web for months, bought and returned multiple dresses. Finally, I came across this dress. It was perfect! Light and feminine, with its own cotton sheath underneath. Loose blousey sleeves ending below the elbow, to cover the dreaded batwings. The workmanship is excellent. The length is perfect. Not too long and not so short that a 63 year old woman looked ridiculous. These dresses are extremely comfortable, even for someone like me who lives in overalls. I have received many compliments when wearing these dresses. I bought two in different colors and know I will get years of pleasure wearing them.
I needed a formal dress and chose this in black. I am 5-3 and usually wear a 1x or 16-18. I also wanted a sleeveless dress because I get extremely hot, even in the winter, but this dress also added the drop straps that help cover your upper arms if you don't like the look of totally sleeveless. This dress was a junior size, so I figured I would need a larger size than normal judging by the dimensions on the size chart. I did need a 2x. The material has stretch in it, so it fit nicely in the waste and bosom, especially if you have a larger bosom. I do recommend a strapless (maybe push up) bra. The skirt had a flair starting from the waist, and I really needed this to help hide my belly. Flat sheath dresses make me look like I'm a few months pregnant (hee,hee). For my height I had to get it shortened by around 4-6 inches. This material does not wrinkle, so I could wrap it into a ball and it unfolds like new. It is dry clean. I felt comfortable and beautiful in this dress, especially for a larger sized woman who has trouble finding clothes.
