Rated 5 out of 5 by njsd Nice fabrics, flexible dress
This is a nice dress, and I don't see a problem with the empire-ish waist being too snug. There's a nice drape and it is very comfortable. My only comment is that it hangs quite straight, and with a dress of this length it would have been nice to have a little shaping. I'm considering having it shortened a bit, but that would change the hem dynamic -- that might be ok. Haven't worn it anywhere yet, so I will see. A fitted black jacket might solve the shaping problem and would dress it up nicely. I got it so cheap that it's worth any alteration I might make!

I purchased this dress on line after seeing it in the catalog. The sale price was too good to pass up. It arrived in a very small package, proving its packable status, and shook out with nary a wrinkle. I tried it on and it's perfect: a great length, nice fitting, elegant classic dress that can go anywhere and be casual or dressy depending on accessories. I am eager for spring to arrive so I can start wearing it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by shopsalot only for small busts
this is a very nice dress. I wish J JILL would not make so many
dresses with the empire waist line. I am heavy busted, loved the
look of this dress, but when I tried on, it just would NOT work.
it made the dress misshapen with the way it was cut, may have
been okay had I planned to wear a sweater over it ALWAYS<
but that was not my intention.]
too many empire waists or not waist at all.
some of us have boobs and hips.

I am 36 and am self conscious about dressing modestly. I'm a mother of 3 and definitely enjoy feeling pretty whenever I leave the house. This dress is modern and feminine. I am 5' 7" and 170lbs and this style flatters my shape and conceals problem areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prismatic Great versatile dress.
I pull my wearever out of my closet every time I'm in a rush and need something classy to wear, no need to iron. This dress is a fantastic addition and is very versatile, can be dressed up or go very casual. I have even worn a sweater over it and it looks like a skirt. Very comfortable and flattering even with my less than flat abs. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophie66 This dress fits very nice
it clings to your body and it flows because of the material. It's not to long or short. It can be worn any where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oregonbobby Good disguising the bumps and lumps
I fell in love with the marled black pieces; I have two tops, one pair of pants as well as the kimono sleeve sweater. I was glad that the dress went on sale. Since I am larger in the middle than elsewhere I was concerned about how it would fit. The empire waist and black bottom half of the dress, however, was indeed flattering. Since we are now in cold weather in Oregon I also put a black Wearever open jacket which is not only the same material but also the marled fabric color as the bottom part of the dress. I feel very elegant in it, but will not save it just for special occasions since Wearever fabric washes beautifully.
