"I have a unique figure that makes dress shopping difficult," reported a rave reviewer. "I have literally tried on ten dresses and then this one. I am so in love with this dress! I have finally found a dress that is flattering for my figure and is absolutely gorgeous. The material is high quality and so comfortable. This dress is so soft and comfy! A must buy!"
"This dress is the perfect summer goddess dress!" shared a happy shopper. "It’s so flattering and fits like a dream! I never leave reviews but this dress inspired me! I also have the pink and white floral and I just love it! The flutter sleeves hide your arms without adding a heavy fabric to your upper arms, the surprise bodice is perfect - a little sexy while still covering what it needs to! The slit in the side is great for showing a little leg but the built in slip hides the goods. I want this in every color! I am almost 6 feet tall with shoes and have trouble finding dresses that feel long enough. This is perfect."
"I now own 14 of these dresses in nearly all the colors!" wrote a very excited shopper. "The most flattering are the army green and white stripe for that 'lengthy look,' and the army green solid. I get SOOOO many compliments on these, especially in the Florida Keys wearing the tropical-print ones. I'm down 20 [pounds] and they still look GREAT, and I don't need to knock down a size because the straps are adjustable and the tie at the waist just shows the curves."
"Perfect dress for evening wear on a beach vacation," wrote a happy traveler. "The material is a decent quality for the price. A little thin, but if you size appropriately the volume of fabrics still keeps the skirting modest and there’s a little bit of a double layer over the chest. Wore it at the beach with flip-flops and back home with a jean jacket and booties. Lots of compliments on the style and pattern in particular."
"Love. This. Dress!!" one shopping enthusiast wrote. "Fits perfectly through the arms and chest, and it's flattering on my mama belly and big behind without looking boxy...Super comfy and flowy!"
"The dress fits great, very flowy and flattering," wrote one content customer. "It hides the tummy well and still flatters curves."
"I wanted a basic loose fitting maxi dress that didn’t show cleavage, and that I could dress up a bit....and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money," a savvy shopper noted. "This fits the bill for me. I don’t want to show off my tummy, and I don’t like my big arms. This is nice and loose.... I’d totally wear it around the house or to the store with a pair of sandals just by itself. But you can dress it up in so many ways!"
"It is a joy to wear!” a happy shopper shared. “The dress obscures nearly everything below my chest as it hangs, which is what I wanted. It is loose around the waist and hips and is not see-through. I only wear a slip so it flows loosely around my middle.”
"I've gotten SO many compliments wearing it at work today!" raved one reviewer. "It's a nice burning-hot 86 degrees out so I decided to test it out for casual Friday, and I can't go anywhere in the office without people stopping me telling me how much they love it!"
"My thighs, stomach and arms are a little pudgy and I am very self-conscious about it," one reviewer shared. "I’ve bought other dresses in the past that didn’t work out, but this dress… THIS DRESS… Was AMAZING!! It fit my breast area perfectly[l], didn’t show my chubby tummy and was the perfect length! I got so many compliments on this dress. I am obsessed!"
“This dress fits well in all the right places and does not cling,” one rave reviewer shared. “Super comfortable and, because it fits well, I feel good wearing this. I just paired it with some cute flats and a big chunky necklace, and I was ready for a day out. I like it enough that I may just buy another!”
"This dress is so incredibly soft and comfortable but also slimming and flattering," wrote a satisfied customer. "I have a very large chest (40DDD) and dresses tend to hang off the girls like a circus tent, but NOT this dress. It’s an empire waist, so it’s perfect for camouflaging the tummy while still fitting nicely up top."
"This is the most perfect maxi dress I’ve ever worn," a pleased shopper shared. "Let me start by saying that I am pear-shaped — small bust, wide hips.... I hate maxi dresses with pockets, because the pocket placement is always directly on my widest part, therefore making me look wider. This dress does NOT have pockets and lays just perfectly! It’s sexy, but not skintight. Flowy, but not baggy.... It’s just perfect!"
"I don't like things to cling or show rolls or dimples, and this did not disappoint (smooth and hides belly just right)," shared a satisfied shopper. "I think the older I get, I look for comfort and convenience, but this is also cute and flattering. Plus, it has pockets."
