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.
A very pretty dress but -as with so many Chinese clothes- it’s on the short side. Cheaper to produce that way probably, but due to a shortfall of just two-or-so vital inches this can’t really be considered a typically 1950’s style dress. At 5’5” I’m hardly leggy, so it would appear shorter still on taller girls! I’m wondering if I can add on a frilled edge or something to increase the length. It doesn’t look quite like a full-circle skirt either so I don’t (yet) know if it will be able to accommodate a rockabilly petticoat .
Also buyers should know that this is a pull-on dress. No zip - but has a shirring elasticated panel at the back. Shirring isn’t to everyone’s taste but does create a quite flattering fit when viewed from the front. It was a bit tight to get over my head and shoulders though so in the end I stepped into it and pulled it on that way-and thankfully it did manage to squeeze over my hips.
I did what others said and went by my waist size 38 inches making it 3xl which was 18/20 size thinking it maybe Asian sizing but it was too big all over so i went for the Xl which was 33.46 waist a UK size 12 Plus on their chart and it is a perfect fit. I usually take a UK 14 or 16 depending on the bust area and this was perfect for my 36f. I also ordered prime so not sure if it came direct from China or was UK made.
Generous sizing I had a 20-22 and usually wear more of a 22, this came up too big but I felt the next size down would have been to snug. material felt nice and the dress hung nicely, just wasn't the right sizing for me
I now have two of these dresses. I find them very comfortable to wear. The only minor problem is the set of three shoulder straps, I find one or two slip off my shoulder. They are widely spaced and even when lifted sit on the top of my arm.
