Carve DesignsJanna Ankle Dress - Women's

No Wonder Your Suitcase Was Light.

Booking that weekend in a Spanish villa sounded like a really good idea, but then you got there and realized you’d only brought the Carve Designs Women’s Janna Ankle Dress. It’s not so bad, though, because the Janna’s perfect for twilight strolls on the beach and nights out at your new favorite paella spot.

Wanted to like it

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I wish this dress was more flattering, but it hangs shapelessly making me look bigger. It seems to run big through the mid-section. There was a distinctive gap between the back opening and my lower back.

Comfy and relaxed fit

Gave this as a gift with feedback. My friend is loving this dress and loves the slouchy fit. She's about 5"4 and thin. This dress hits her at her ankles and even though it's a little baggy, the cut of the long dress as well as back design makes it stylish without looking overwhelming. The pockets make it comfortable as well. Material is great for throwing in a beach bag or to travel with.

This is a super comfy and loose fitting dress. It also runs about one size large on me so I would recommend sizing down. The large side pockets are very discreet and awesome! I love the low cut back but it can still be worn with a bra due to the placement of the strap detail. It is cut a bit narrow at the ankle so is ideal for beach walking, or anywhere flat. Plan to hike it up a bit if you find yourself on any uneven terrain or needing to make a high step. Washes well and great for travel as the fabric resists wrinkling fairly well.

Great Dress!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: XS

I'm loving this dress for summer! The adjustable straps are great to adjust the fit because that's about the only shape you'll get with this. It's pretty boxy, but incredibly comfy. I've been wearing it with a skinny belt to add some shape, but on vacation, at the beach, etc. where you can get away with a little more relaxed fit I wouldn't add it. The back detail is great, and the fabric is good quality and very soft/comfy. So glad I ordered this!

Great summer dress for the beach

Very nice! Fit is runs one size larger.
My wife generally wears a size small in most clothing. She was absolutely drowning in the Small. XS fits her perfect!
