Feels great to wear on a hot day

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Extra Small

This dress is awesome. I use to never wear dresses and always wanted to but felt not great in them. I have found two, this one and another brand, that I really love to wear. For my body style the dress length is great. I normally have a hard time with my height and long torso finding a dress that is modest enough for my taste. Being in my early 30s and a mom of two littles I like to have some coverage...especially when having to chase after the kids. The dress hits a few inches above my knees. The top is great because it has a built in shelf bra and I am practically non existent in that department. It feels supportive like a sports bra would be. The material is lightweight but heavy enough to wear it does not show any lines or anything.

The dress also has two zip side pockets which make it even more awesome. I was able to fit my keys in one and my cell phone in the other. However, I do not think I would want my phone in there all the time because the weight of the phone made it feel strange. Not the dresses fault though.

Last Sunday I wore it to church with a cardigan over and then after church running errands I took the cardigan off. I think it will be a great dress that I can wear practically anywhere. I got the gray color and it is a nice neutral color but not bland at all.

Love the dress

Love the dress, love the material, don't really love the pockets though. I'm a typical hour glass, this type of dress usually looks pretty darn good on me. But I don't know why these brands keep putting pockets on the dresses. The pockets never lay right, and they almost always make people's hips wider than they are. Luckily, these pockets are small (honestly, they are so shallow, I'm not sure of their purpose), and the zipper lays well. But when I get up from sitting, I have to adjust the pockets so they lay flat. this is the only flaw of the dress. And, honestly, the only people this will be a flaw for are pear shape and hourglass shape women. So if that is you, just be aware. It isn't a deal breaker for me (if my hips were a bit wider than what they are, it would be a problem, luckily I'm tall), it only cost the dress one star. If this dress didn't have the pockets, it would be a 5 star dress.

Also, side note, if you are large chested... this might now be right for you. I am a 36B and the large is form fitting.
