Very SLIGHTLY fitted bodice!
The dress feels like it would be a good one for hot summer days. It is loose and flows nicely. It will pair well with several different kinds of tops or light sweater types of things. However, I am waiting to see if the next size down will be a better fit in the top, without being too fitted through the hips. I do not have broad shoulders and while I need to loose some pounds mainly through the mid-section, the size 14 is more than ample everywhere. The top part is a bit too loose through the neck and armholes. There is a bit of extra room through the hips, so I am hoping the next size down will work without being too small below. I normally wear 14's and even some 16's in pants. If this will help you judge.
dress is so-so
Purchased this dress in anticipation of warmer weather. The description noted that it's made of mostly Tencel with some linen - I've had Tencel items before and loved the fabric. I received this dress and followed the instructions to wash it before wearing it. After following the instructions to a ""T"", I removed it from the dryer and was so disappointed! The dress is going to require a ridiculous amount of ironing to look like anything other than a rag. Had I known that, I would have saved myself the money and trouble - can't return it because now it's been washed. Just be aware that the dress is not wash and wear! The brown is a very nice medium shade. I'm a size 6-8 and bought a 6 that fits well and is cut generously - length is maybe 2"" above ankle on 5'5"".

Great fabric, comfy, flattering
This dress is casual, cool, and cute. I was interested to see what the fabric was like, as I love both tencel and linen. Turns out it looks pretty much like all tencel. My only complaint with tencel has been that if you get grease on it, that's it. It won't ever come out. So maybe the linen will reduce that trait. The instructions say don't spot treat, and I'm guessing that, like silk, the water can leave a spot on it too. So I will handle it carefully. I got it in brown, which is a nice mellow color. I would agree with the other reviewers that it runs a bit large. I got it in S, my usual size, and the armholes are a little big, and the top is loose. There's a zipper on the side but I just slipped it over my head. I'm considering whether to exchange it for an XS.
I bought the berry color and love the color, it's just as it appears online. I haven't tried to wash it yet so can't comment on the need to iron it. I originally ordered a 12, my normal size, but like other reviewers, found it to be slightly too big on the top. I exchanged it for a 10, and it does fit better, although now it is snug on the top. At least now the arm holes aren't gaping as they were with the first one. I haven't bothered to unzip it, I just pulled it on and that worked fine. Too cold here now to wear it, but expect to use it this summer and next winter in Florida.
Cool and comfy
I purchased this dress to wear to my daughters shower. I found it to be true to size. It looks great, but it needs some accessories to jazz it up. I am wearing it with a chunky necklace and gold sandals.
Pretty and Simple
I bought this dress in berry color, and it is very pretty. I'm 5'6"" and go back and forth between sizes 10 and 12. After reading the reviews, I ordered the 10, and it fits perfectly. Got lots of compliments on this dress, too!
Love this Dress
Cool and comfortable. Nice fabric, simple design. Bought it in mocha on sale, what a deal! will most likely get it in the berry color as well. Thanks TA!
So pleased with this dress. Ordered the beige and sorry I didn't order another while they were on sale. I'm a size 8 and while this is a little roomy, I'm glad I didn't order down.
This dress fits well on top but is roomy through the hips. It will be a great go to casual dress. It's longer than I thought it would be- I'm 5'6"" and it comes to my ankles. I'll get a couple of darts put in the back to make it a little more flattering.
