Women's Plus Size 3/4-sleeve Crepe Jersey Gathered Surplice Dress
Excellent fit, style, and fabric
I am size 20w and frequently the armholes are HUGE in that size. Perhaps I am more of a "pear" than most in that size. The fit is excellent. I need dresses because of a disability, and the fabric is great right out of the dryer, even if I have been down for a nap, the wrinkles fall out nicely. Also, it is truly three season, I am wearing it now in air conditioning in Texas, and am comfortable. It is flattering and I have received compliments from my fashionable daughter. BUY.

I liked the look of this dress enough to order it, but it did not suit my shape and returned it. I'm sure it would do someone with narrower shoulders and waist more justice.

This was a great dress, especially at the sale price. Will be great for travel. Others have commented on being high waisted, but that made it a perfect fit for me.

I bought this dress on sale..... great bargin! Dress fits true to size. I am 5'7", full busted. Dress fits well. Fabric doesn't wrinkle easy. Great everday work dress. I would encourge anyone to pick-up this dress.

Figure flattering casual dress
The shirred surplice bodice on this dress, with v-neck and 3/4 sleeves, is very flattering. It comes with a soft 1-1/2 inch (approx) scarf type belt of the same material, but it looked much better when I added a silver conch belt instead. The jersey material makes this very easy to wear as a casual dress, or you could play with accessories for a little dressier look. I felt the need to wear a half slip with the material because it seemed somewhat clingy, but it may have been our weather that day. Good length at the knee.

I bought 4!
I like this dress so much I bought it in 4 different colors! It's flattering and comfortable.

I had high hopes for this dress, despite the mixed reviews. I am 5'3", 165lbs, slightly pear-shaped, and short waisted. I ordered a size down as many suggested, and I liked the colour, drape, and texture of the material, but I guess the combination of the fullness of the top with the raglan sleeves, gathered surplice bodice and the high elastic waistline made me look blowsy and frumpy. Definitely not flattering on my figure, and I am envious of those who found it a good fit, especially at the sale price. Returning it. Sigh.

Kept for nightgown/ robe
I love all the other LE dresses I've bought, but this one is fairly unflattering, it's even evident in the picture. Waist is so high it sits right under boobs. The fabric is jersey-like, so I kept it for use as a robe or night-gown. I had washed it hoping it would reshape a bit, but no such luck.

I don't understand the gathers at the sleeves or the crunchy, yet thin, material. Return.

I liked this...
I actually liked this much more than I expected to. The material is a little odd....sort of stiff/crunchy feeling, but then it actually does drape well once the dress is on. I found it very flattering on me - I'm 5'2" and plus-sized and it fit me extremely well. Also, the garnet color is gorgeous in person.
