Women's 3/4-sleeve Pattern Ponté Wrap Dress
I bought this in red for spring - and was disappointed as soon as I pulled it out of the wrapping. Although this style looked right, the material is a heavy stiff scratchy knit that is not going to be comfortable and I am sadly returning it.

Has become a favorite
I was unsure about this dress but ordered it anyway. I must say, it has become one of my favorites - it travels incredibly well. It looks good on my short and "fluffy" body, It is shorter than what I usually wear but works very well with tights. The material is slightly stiff but that helps it stay nice-looking all day. This is a great go-to work dress

A nice office dress.
I get only compliments every time I wear this dress. I'm petite, 5.1 and 123, so I picked size 2 petite of red. Fits my size perfectly, without any flaws. The color is bright and noticeable. Firm texture, doesn't look cheap to me. The dress should work well for winter season as well as fall and early spring. Washed two times in machine, still looks like new.

Fits well but the top likes to open up :(
I love the cut and the feel of this dress immensely. The only complaint I have of this dress is that the dress seemed to want to open up in the front and so I needed a pin in order to keep from flashing everyone at work. I don't have a large chest so it wasn't a major issue for me but for someone with a large chest, I think it could prove a major issue. I received alot of compliments on this dress (I ordered it in the cherry red# - that the cut flattered me and that the color was very nice. I also love the feel of the dress and I love the warmth of it #it is the perfect weight for fall). I ordered it in medium and I am 140 pounds and 5'7 and it is actually a little bit too big for me - I probably should have gotten the small but I am going to keep the medium solely because I hate having to deal with returns. I love the dress overall and will just use some double sided tape or a pin to deal with the opening up of the front of the dress as the pros outweigh the cons of this dress but just be aware that the "girls" could be a bit exposed if you arent' careful with this dress :)

Too small for 18w and fabric was scratchy
I really wanted this to work as I loved the red print. However, the fabric was scratchy and I wear an 18w - was hoping the XL (18) would fit but it was too small. Would love to see if made in a Plus size in a nicer fabric.

The fabric was stiff and itchy. The cut was great but I couldn't stand the fabric.

Cute color, did not like the fabric or shape
I wasn't a huge fan of this dress - the pattern was very pretty, but the fabric felt a bit cheap. I didn't love the shape of the dress either, it was a bit boxy.

OK in red print, terrible in purple-stiff
I am 5'2 hourglass shape, 34DD I got the Med-Pet.. Red Print. t is 1 inch above knee and very close to the body. The fit is nice and the color is bright. (Med.Reg. was a better length but too baggy on top)
Yes, the fabric is a little firm but OK and comfy.... BUT the purple print is veeery stiff and scratchy all over not only the stitching. Please adjust your quality control for the purple fabric. It is not comfortable.

Weird fabric and fit
Tried this dress in a small as that seems to be my Lands End dress size. The arms were tight and the fabric was not nice. It was stiff and cheap feeling. The fit other than arms was okay, though a little tight in the shoulder area. I am 5'5", 140 lbs and pear-shaped.

Very cute dress, wonderful fabric, but be careful if you're 5'9" or over
I loved this wrap dress -- the fabric is a substantial weight and hangs nicely, and the colours were nice and rich. Unfortunately the waistband hit me too high on the ribs, so I'm returning it. I'm 5'9", but ordered the a regular size M as I wanted the dress to be above my knees. If I had ordered the Tall M, the waist might have been better, but then I would have needed to hem the dress. If the fit of the bodice had been a bit longer, I would have gladly kept the dress and ordered another in a different colour, it feels like the kind of piece you could wear all day and be comfortable and stylish at the same time.
