Rated 3 out of 5 by Gloria409 Pretty Dress
I saw this dress and immediately loved it, saw it was rayon with no "stretch" so ordered it generously sized, but it still was too snug on me. A lovely print, a lovely shape but it had to go back. Very disappointed, for the first time in years. I usually am delighted with everything from J.Jill. It you have any extra weight around your middle, consider that this dress has no give to it to be forgiving. But not to worry, I will try the print Wearever dress instead! I am a true fan of J.Jill all the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatherineFM Pretty and a little retro
With the floral print, squared shoulders and elbow-length sleeves, this wearable dress has almost an 80's feel. I love the pockets! However, I agree with the reviewer who said it runs a bit small through shoulders and sleeves. I tried my usual jjill size but found it too constricting for comfort through the upper back, although the rest of the fit was fine. I sized up for comfort in the arms, which makes the body pretty loose, and gives the dress a more blousy, casual feel. If you aren't broad-shouldered, you may be able to go with a smaller size and get a closer fit through the waist. Either way, it's a nice dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelleJ Very pretty, flattering
In JJill clothes I wear a small. For anyone who may be muscular in the arms or on the upper body, this tends to run small. It does nip in at the rib cage and waist and find that helpful in giving me shape. I sized up as it ran slightly small. The colors are more gray/taupe and the blue does stand out more than the slightly muted lilac color that you can barely see. I love the style and that it doesn't look dowdy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by srr1978 Pretty in the photo, not for me at all when in hand
I think that the photo of this dress is very misleading. In the photo it appears to nip in at the waist, sort of a fit and flare style, which I love. The actual dress was much more like a shift with no waistline at all - it looked like a sack on me. The quality of the dress was quite nice, but the fit was not at all what I expected and I had to return it. It might look nice on some women, but not on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helen252 Versatile, flattering dress
I am a plus size woman and I love this dress! it is very flattering and slimming! Be aware that the colors are more muted than they appear online. The background is more of a muted black/dark grey and the blue flowers do not "pop" as much as I expected. I suppose that is why it is a "vintage" print. I bought this dress to wear to a special dinner and I was able to dress it up with jewelry and a sparkly blue wrap. It is great for work too - I like to wear it with a black flyaway cardigan. It is very comfortable.
