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.
Amazon brands, especially lark and ro, the small sizes are actually small. No vanity sizing here. For petite women, I really appreciate this. The XS fit me really well - fitted but definitely not a bodycon type of fit.
I love the colour, sleeves, material and length. I strongly disliked the pockets. They are not designed properly. I have hips, so they popped right out and made the entire dress unflattering. I returned it. It could work on a woman without hips.
The sizing consistency is WAY off with the lark and ro dresses. I have a size 12 from this brand that I love and fits great (I am typically a 10, so did have to size up). Expected to size up with this dress as well, so I ordered a 12. It was terribly small! Fit like it was a 6/8. I did order the 14 hoping I might be able to pull it off. I will update once I get it. Come on Lark and Ro we all want to love these dresses but the sizing has got to be taken care of!
Update, The 14 is still at least 2 sizes too small. But it will work for me and it is a flattering cut for my body so I will be keeping it.
I usually wear a 2, but ordered a 4, thinking that a looser fit would help the pocket issues other people complained about. Really, the pockets were just poorly designed -- they are right at the hip so they bulge out. It looks like the seam was just opened and a pocket stuck in as an afterthought.
A size 4 was somehow too narrow at the shoulder, so the dress rode up on my shoulders instead of sitting comfortably -- I could have gone another size up. I think the shoulders and pockets would have fit better with a looser overall fit.
Pros: fabric is nice. Soft to the touch, a bit stretchy, and has a lining. Love the pockets. Quality materials. Length is at the knee.
Con: The cut of the dress sits at your natural waistline. This is not a true a line dress. This will not do well on people with a short waist. Also the armpit needs to sit a tiny bit higher up. Moving my arm moved the whole dress up and since the neckline is a bit of a boatneck. Lots of things will be showing from the top angle.
For me it just made me look like a box. So everyone is different.
I really liked the cut and look of the ivory dress and took a chance despite other reviews. The quality, however, is just not worth the price. While the fit was fine for me, you could see the outlines of the white pockets through the skirt not to mention any underwear. Plus the fabric is super wrinkly and really detracts from the crisp look shown in the Amazon pictures.
