Denim shirt dress
Shirt Dress, emphasis on Shirt
I was a bit disappointed when I first tried this dress on. In the picture, the bottom seems to flare out just a little bit, but on me, it isn't the same. It's cute, but definitely more shirt than dress. I ordered a size up from my normal size after reading other reviews, and I'm so glad I did! The arms are slimmer than I expected, and the chest is more fitted than I'd expect.
But, paired with my cowboy boots, this dress works perfectly for the occasions where I'd normally wear jeans, but want something a little bit more girly. I like it for what it is, even if it isn't entirely what I was expecting. Just order it a bit larger than you normally would!

Love this dress
I am a 46 D chest and wear a 26 in LB clothing. This dress was a little tight across the chest. While I was able to button it, i avoided any incredible hulk likeness by pairing it with a gold tank top that i purchased from lb at least 5 years ago. I got many many complements wearing it and it has become my go to dress when I need to look cute quickly. It hits right at the knee with peeks of thigh on the side and is very flattering for my long legs. It is a pain in the rear to iron though...But thats what husbands are for. I Love this dress.

I hardly every write a review for products but felt compelled to here. This is a fabulous dress that is well made and very flattering. I often read reviews on LB and wonder what their body type is because not all plus size women are shaped the same. I am typically an 18-20 with a size 40DD bust and am 5' 8". I wear the "yellow" size in right fit jeans. I bought size 20 and it fits perfectly. I don't feel I am very curvy, rather a bit more like lumpy. This dress is very flattering on my body type. The belt hits at my natural waste making the illusion that I have curves, hiding my biggest problem area my tummy, enhancing but not revealing a full bust and showing off my greatest asset my legs. It is a bit longer than pictured and hits just above mid calf when I wear flats. I don't think it would be flattering on someone shorter unless they hemmed it. Also if you have a full rear, which I wish had but don't,this dress may not hang as well. For me -- Love it! Hope this is helpful.

Not for me
I was very disappointed with this dress and thankfully tried it on in the store. It just reminds of a giant jean shirt with tight arms. The size is way off, not true to size. I would not recommend this dress.
