Women's Elbow Sleeve Ponté Boatneck Dress
I love this fabric - hangs nicely. The only one they had left in my size was the black, which I received and I do love. I'm kicking myself for not acting on this sooner and being able to get more colors.

Love this dress! Weight of fabric is substantial but still flows nicely over body. The red is vibrant. Design features such as length of skirt and sleeves are generous and not skimpy at all. This is a versatile dress to get in every colour and wear for work, weekend and special occasions -- just change accessories.

This dress is vert comfortable.
The fit was just great, and it was better than I expect.

Not a winner. Frumpy length, made me look fat
I'm a size 8 in almost everything from LE. This dress "fit" in the sense that it wasn't baggy or too tight but boy was it unflattering. The neckline is too high to be a pretty scoop neck but too low to be a flattering crew neck. All it did was expose the fact that I should have worn a lot more sunscreen on my chest when I was younger. The length was too long and hit me right where my calves start thickening instead of right below or at the knee (which is what the picture shows). I'm 5'7" and the length should have been good. Finally, the waist may come a bit higher than natural waist (which should have been slimming) but ended up just making me look fat. For me, this shape was NOT a winner. But, in typical LE fashion, the quality of construction was excellent. No complaints on that aspect.

A beautiful dress, especially for those of us with a somewhat hourglass figure. The length hits me right at the correct spot (I'm almost 5'9" and I purchased a regular length). I purchased a Medium and it fit true to size. I would certainly buy it again.

Great dress for work or to fancy up with jewelry for dressy occasions.
I ordered this dress for my adult daughter for Christmas. She is five feet ten inches and i ordered a size eight tall , it was too short waisted so we sent it back. Too bad, because it is such a classic and elegant style.

I ordered Cin Bark & it matches my hair perfectly. Tad too small but kept hoping will cause me lose weight so I can wear!

very nice dress
Great dress! Fits nice but after one washing according to the directions, it has started to pill.

I'm 5'6" and wear the 1x in the plus size range. The top fits fantastic but fabric in the skirt is just a little too full (someone who wears a plus size 26-28 on the bottom would be comfortable), and the length is just a little too long - about 2 1/2 inches below my knees. The fabric is also noticeably pilling like other reviewers have mentioned, despite my washing in a large lingerie bag, on cold, and laying flat to dry.I used an electric fabric shaver and that has helped, but it still looks noticeably worn up close. That being said, no one else is making plus size, half sleeve, ponte dresses cut to flatter a plus size pear shape, and this is the closest I've ever come. It's much better for pear shapes than the sheath dress also offered here in ponte. It's VERY close to being perfect, if it were cut a little closer on the bottom and 1-2" shorter. But I'll take it over some of the too-short styles out there for plus size women - I want to hide the cellulite that starts at my knee, thank you. I own every color and pattern in this dress - black, red, green, navy, the black flocked, the red flocked, etc. I would buy more even if it's not modified, but especially if it were.

I chose the Emerald Gulf color and paired this dress with the Supima cardigan in Emerald Gulf. Really looked good together and with the sales the outfit looks more expensive than what I had invested. Really pleased!
