Rated 4 out of
Great base layer or for warm daysThis dress fits like a glove. Room for my curves and nice length at knee. Appropriate for work and would work well with a long or regular sweater. It is not a Chicago winter dress, but it should be great for spring and fall. The neck might be a bit much for hot and humid summer days. I bought the caviar color which looks more solid than striped. The strips are very, very thin. I bought a large and usually wear a 12/14 in other active wear clothing. I am 5'6", 36 DD, and weigh 185. I was worried about the pocket, but they don't stick out and aren't all bumpy looking. Hope that is true after I wash it. I think this dress will be great to travel with, since it can be dressed up or down.
