Women's Sleeveless Ponté Sheath Dress with Pockets
Perfect for Any Occasion
I never write reviews, but this dress deserved it. Seriously, this is the most flattering, comfortable shift dress I've ever owned. I ended up buying four of them, and I use them for work, any dressy event, or even going out at night. I'm a curvy, but athletic 5'4", 140 lbs, size 34DD bust and the size 4 Regular fits perfectly. It is not too tight and it skims in all the right places. Being curvy, I would never think that I'd look good in a shift dress, but this one really works. I get compliments every time I wear them, and the stretch factor is perfect. Try it. You will be pleasantly surprised. This dress is magic!

nice quality dress just a little long.
I loved the dress, the fabric and the color. I'm a size 10 and it seemed very true to size. I'm also 5'6" and it hit about 2 inches below my knees. Not at all how it's shown on the model. I like the dress well enough that I think I'll take it to the tailor to have it hemmed. The teal was very pretty.

I purchased this for a summer dress, but the material was way to thick for summer use.
The dress fit fine, it was just the weight of the material that I did not like, so I returned it.

Excellent basic wardrobe piece
This well made dress, good quality fabric, in a simple design is an excellent basic wardrobe piece. Can be dressed up or down, worn to work or in the evening. Travels well due to that super fabric that folds up easily and hangs out perfectly , even better with a touch of steam. Keep producing this item in the same quality fabric please.

Had to tweak it a little bit, but I'm getting it there...
So I bought a number of colors in this dress and picked a size 8 based on reviews and on the size chart. (5'4", 36 bust, 138 pounds, athletic). The thing I didn't like about it was the pockets. What happens (even if you're very thin) is where the pockets attach on the inside of the dress...well, it pulls down on the front of the dress and can be seen from the outside (it makes it look like there is a seam there). However, I liked the dress enough that I paid my seamstress the $10 to have the pockets removed and the exterior part of the pocket made into a "faux" pocket instead. The only other thing that I would caution you about on this dress is that it gets to be a little gappy in the skirt. So make sure to wear a slip or it will look like you're wearing culottes. Once I figured that out I was able to wear the dress with confidence and I received a number of compliments on it. I am ordering it again, but will be trying a size 6 this time around.

I ordered this dress twice and was not happy either time.
I ordered this dress twice in the fuscia color because I loved it. But both times it came in with a mark down the front where it had been pressed up against the zipper in the back. I tried to iron it on both dresses and I couldn't get the mark out. Very disappointed.

lovely except it flares at the armhole, bustline too high
The fabric and color are lovely. But the bustline was cut so that you'd need to wear a serious pushup bra to get your bustline to line up with the curves on this dress. I don't "sag" but my bustline was at least 2 inches below that on this dress. Also while a 12 fit beautifully over my waist and hips, the lower part of the armholes flared out. If the bustline had fit I'd have had the dress taken to have the armhole issue fixed as it would have been worth it. But no way to re-cut the dress to fix the bust issue. I bought a pink patterned dress of very similar pattern and shape and same size, but it did not have these problems. So maybe it was just this particular dress?

Flattering, professional and comfortable
This dress looks smart, high quality and takes off the pounds. I stopped in the market on my way home from work and a complete stranger said "nice dress" as we passed in the aisle. Planning to get another in a different color; the teal is beautiful.

Excellent work option
The dress fits well and looks good for the office layered with a sweater or jacket. I have several.

I ordered this dress in teal and am delighted with how comfortable it feels. The fabric is heavy, almost too warm for an 80 degree day, however, the positive feature of thicker fabric is you won't require a slip. It didn't wrinkle after wearing all day, being in the car, and having to do a spot clean after spilling a few drops of coffee on it! My favorite feature - the pockets.
