To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I don't really know what it is about the cut of this dress that makes it SO small. Based on other reviews, I went up two sizes. Even that wasn't enough. The dress still looks uncomfortably snug even though the fabric has a hint of stretch. It kind of makes me wonder if this dress was never converted from EU sizes to US sizes. It's a nice overall dress if you get the sizing right. I would suggest starting with two sizes if you have any kind of curves. Three would be safe since it's easier to alter something that's too big than to add fabric. For fit reference, I'm 5'6", 153lbs and a 34G bra size. I usually wear a size 10. The 16 would have been ideal.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this review. I hope the information that I've provided makes your decision a little easier.
Super comfortable dress with a simple design that is perfect for work or casual events. The added ruffle on the sleeves adds extra pizzaz and was not super flouncy or annoying to wear. Like the description states, go up at least one size from your usual. I am 5’ 4” and 145 lbs with a 38C bustline, generally wear a size 10 or 12, and the 14 fit fairly loose like I prefer for work, but a 12 would have been too tight through the chest. I was a bit disappointed in the zipper. It does not go all the way to the top of the dress but the hook and eye is nearly impossible to connect by the wearer. I had to get my husband to do it and he struggled. Washes well and when removed promptly from the drier is fairly wrinkle-free.
Very cute, simple dress. The 14 fits me well, which is my size. It hits about 2 or so inches above the tops of my knees. The sleeves are a nice length if you are like me and don't like to show your upper arms. I am 5'7" and 145 lbs, for reference. Pretty teal color. It is unlined, but the fabric is thick enough that you don't need a lining. It may call for some shape wear to prevent panty and bra lines in the back, at least for me. Great dress for a wedding.
