Women's Petite Solid Ruffle Front Georgette Dress
I love this dress; the fit was perfect and the color was stunning.

I was really disappointed to learn this dress and a slip underneath. I didn't think the slip was needed at all and it was difficult to put on. I think the dress is really cute but with the slip underneath it just didn't seem to sit right on my body so I returned it.

Gorgeous color! Nice fit.
This dress will easily be a favorite during warmer weather! The color is fantastic. The slip is great so you don't need to worry about showing what's underneath. The top is a tad too blousy, but I think that it is supposed to fit a bit more loosely. The length and the bottom is a perfect fit. It will be an easy choice for many occasions.

Very pretty and feminine
Size 10 - I am rather tall, so it was a bit above knee. Fits well, true to size. Dress is beautiful - soft and flowing fabric (slip is no-see-through). Nicely ruffled neckline. It is not necessarily good for wearing to office, but for a little more formal affair. Green is very rich color.

I like it.
I am 5'11'' and 155 pounds. Size 10 fits me well. The dress has built in pleats at the sides, and due to my long waist I wish they were lower, also the dress could be longer. But nevertheless I like it. It arrived very fast for an international shipping (to Lithuania) and in a very big box, with its own hanger. Looking forward to wearing it for my graduation!

Beautiful, classic dress
I love this dress!!! In fact, I started with the pine color, then ordered the blue and red colors as well. :)) I'm short-waisted, so removing the fabric belt really made it more flattering. The neckline is lovely, the sleeves are perfect, the colors are wonderful, especially for pale skin tones. The fabric is very comfortable, silky but not clingy. Overall a winner! And the sale price? Fantastic!!

Not for me
I often like the dresses that other people don't like - I'm happy with loose and drapey fits, and unusual cuts. I thought the elasticized waist and great colour would, with the excellent sale price, make this dress a winner. Unfortunately I have to agree with other reviewers that this is not a well-conceived dress, or not for my shape. I sized down, as my usual non-LE size (12) does not work when ordering a lot of LE dresses, which seem cut big. Even still this dress felt both baggy, clingy, and weird. The fabric is a cheap polyester, very wrinkled, and the slip is an even cheaper polyester. When I took the garment out of the bag it was so staticky that it gave me a shock! Like other reviewers, I too found the dress-slip combo confusing when trying to get the dress on, with the slip bunching and clinging to the dress. But once on, it just looked schlumpy and aging, despite the beautiful colour (such a great colour!). I am 5'5", 39-31-42, a short-waisted, broad-shouldered combo of a pear and an hourglass. The waist on this dress was too low for me, making me look bigger and lumpier than I am. The length was nice (just at the knee), but the sleeves made my arms look chubby. The ruffles at the front were ok, but when I tried a different belt, to see if it helped (a wide, black belt) I found the ruffles got a bit confused with it. Between the clinging, the unflattering shape, and the cheap fabric, I won't be keeping this. But I think that long-waisted women, or women with bigger busts, might do better with it than me.

I bought this dress on sale, uncertain of how it would look on my body type. I am tall, slightly pear-shaped and this dress looks fabulous! Being 5'10", dresses are usually too short on me, but this one falls right above the knee so it's a perfect length. The material is a gorgeous dark emerald green and it feels "light and flowy" when you wear it. This dress can be "dressed up" for going out, or you can put a sweater/jacket over it and wear it to work. A great dress for taller women, not sure how this ruffled neckline style would look on petites.

Great Day Dress
This dress is a bit tight in the arm - more of a cap sleeve, but I do have a larger arm. I ordered in a 6P and it is true to size. I did not have the problem with the gaping at the sides or the waist line as reviewers did. It sits at my natural waist perfectly and I am 5'3". The skirt does hang a few inches lower than the slip and seems to be a bit lower on the sides than in the front and back, but it will not need any altering and I think it is very flattering. You also can't beat the sale price!

Not a ruffle girl
I didn't notice in the photo that the ruffle on this dress is rather large. My bad.
I tried it on -- hard to get in to because of the slip, but the slip is very nice with the delicate fabric.
Walking around home the static built up and the dress stuck to me in a most inappropriate way.
The color is good, but the dress is meant for someone slim who carries dryer sheets in her pocket.
