This is my second review of this dress. I ordered a medium, but it was too tight and I exchanged it for a large. Fits perfectly! On this particular dress, it fits more like regular department store sizing, rather than the bigger fit I am used to with FullBeauty sizing. But, hey, free exchanges! I couldn't be happier with the dress and it didn't take long for the exchange.
This dress is very cute. I never know whether to get medium or large, because it depends on the dress. I ordered the medium, and it was too tight. It is in the process of exchanging for a large, which is sure to be just right. If it's a little big, I can put it in the dryer. Thanks for free exchanges!
I bought it in black, and wore it for my first day preaching at my congregation. I wore black tights and black shoes, but with a bright orange scarf and earrings. The dress was fantastic, stylish and conservative, so that I could move around comfortably. I love that it is very long, so that when I sat and preached at the children's service, I didn't have to worry about how I was sitting.
I'm drawn to clothing with clean lines and ease of care. This dress has both. I added a silver chain belt and have worn it to work (college professor) and church. In fact, I like the dress so much that I have it in grey and black..
This dress really is a blank slate - full of potential. Fabric is no heavier than the average t-shirt, and hangs very straight. My first thought is that it looked like a nightgown. Use your imagination and it can be styled various ways - belt, scarf, casual jewelry, jean jacket or cardigan topper, boots, flip-flops, sneakers. The dress is what you make of it. Gray color is nice neutral.
This dress is so versatile, you can dress it up, down or not at all and still look stunning. I am partial to column dresses and knits, and this fits the bill on both counts. I especially like the grey color, because all my jewelry is silver or silver tone, which look great with this dress. Another winner!
If you're on the fence get this dress. So flattering and comfortable. Covers my knees and upper arms while still looking cute and stylish. Not an ugly, cheap looking gray like some. I ordered thinking if it's thin or poor quality, it's so cheap even one season will work. But the quality and material are fantastic and think it will last a long time. Have ordered similar from a travel catalog for 2 to 3 times the price and this is equal or better quality. I ordered the black right away.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived! The quality of the material is very good. It is pretty much true to size fit. I had a little bit of extra room which I just added a belt. I received a lot of compliments when I wore it too. This is the second thing I have ordered from ellos. I think I feel confident in ordering more items.
I like the general idea of this dress and really hoped to be able to incorporate it into my wardrobe. However, once I received it and tried it on, I found that the cut simply did not work for me. The bottom half of the dress fit fairly well, if not a little roomy, but I was swimming in the top. I have a larger chest and usually have trouble with tops being too small. This top was so large that I had at least four extra inches of fabric, making it look baggy and sloppy. The waist part of the dress was huge and not even a belt or getting it tailored would have corrected the fit. Even going down a size, the top and waist would have been too large. This dress could work on someone with a different build, but not on me.
The length and size are perfect. The fit is the most flattering with a belt. I bought it in black and wore it to work with a 2.5 inch wide black belt, black tights, and black short boots. It was comfortable all day at work. I wore it with a long burgundy sweater.
I have sensitive skin and try to wear only natural fibers next to it. This dress is comfortable, looks neat, and can be dressed up or down. Great quality for the price, which was really reasonable. Ordered both colors--one shipped too late for the wedding, but decided to keep it because I love the style and know these will be my go to dresses. I normally need a large in dresses, but ordered the medium because the large was out of stock. Glad it was!
I BOUGHT THIS DRESS FOR MY SONS WEDDING AND WAS NOT ABLE TO WEAR IT BECAUSE I AM DISABLED AND CANNOT WEAR HEELS AND THE DRESS IS ABOUT 6 INCHES TOO LONG. I AM NOW STUCK WITH A DRESS I CANNOT WEAR AND WAS SUPPOSE TO RECEIVE A LABEL TO RETURN IT WHICH I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED. :-(
This is a nice dress. The fabric makes it nice for the fall and winter or just for a cool and breezy day. I'm 6'1...so this dress was not a maxi on me..more like a midi.. which was nice also. So if you're tall like me you should know that Woman Within or any of their sister stores do not cater to tall women and I hate it because there's so much I like. I would recommend this dress for every other reason except the length.
Love this dress! This dress, what can I say; it's fabulous! It was purchased initially to wear around home or to run an errand. However, I'm finding this my absolute go-to dress! My winter plans are to wear the dress with boots and a boyfriend cardigan sweater or, simply; a scarf! The fabric feels soft and flows naturally on your body. My waist/torso is extremely long and this dress fits perfectly!
This may possibly be one of my favorite dresses I ever bought. I received my order with both colors yesterday, and I am wearing the black dress today. The fit is perfect. The material is not clingy yet doesn't fit like a sack. It is just right--very figure flattering and quite comfortable. I wear a size 14, and the Medium fits perfectly. The material is super soft and is of very nice quality. So happy with my purchase.
