Charlize Maxi Dress
Love the dress but it's longgggggg
I just received this dress in red and I love practically everything about it. The color and style are gorgeous. Very stretchy, flowy, comfortable, and can be worn year round. I'd say the fit is true to size with the exception of the length. For reference I am 5'8 1/2, normally wear a size 14/16 dress (would be more of a 14 if it were not for the "twins"), have a bit of a belly, and wear 42D bra. I purchased the size 0X and it fits perfectly everywhere with the exception of the length. This dress is extremely long and I like my maxi dresses long to cover my ankles and touch the top of my feet when wearing flats. I will have to have it shortened because it would still be too long even if I wore heels. If you are a VERY tall girl, this dress will be perfect for you. Shorter girls just know that this dress will definitely need to be shortened if you decide to purchase. I do love the dress though and I'm considering purchasing a second in another color. It can be dressed up or down. That's what I love most about it.

Love the dress. I was able to dress it up with heels and accessories to wear it for a formal function. The only downside is that the length was to long and I had to continually hold the dress up while I walked to avoid walking on the dress. I will have the dress altered to avoid this problem in the future.

Comfortable But Not For Me
The dress was comfortable, fit true to size, but was not as flattering to my large figure as I thought it might be. It was about 4 - 6" too long (I am 5'8") if wearing flats so it has plenty of length. The color was true to the picture as well. I am returning it since I just don't like the dress on me as much as I thought I would.

Good concert dress
I bought this dress specifically to wear as concert attire. The flowing sleeves are perfect for playing the piano- no restriction at all around the arms or tightening across the shoulders. I did find that the hem was uneven (longer in front than in back). Maybe the designer thought a size 20 means a big tummy that needs accommodation? Anyway- easy fix and I have a classic, long back dress that fits my needs perfectly!
