Rated 5 out of 5 by njmom a different take on this dress
I read the reviews before I ordered. Decided I'd go up a size from my usual XL to a 2X. Very glad I did. I can admit that I'm obese, I need to lose 45 lbs or so. This is all on my hips and belly. I'm a pear shape no matter my weight. So an A line is definitely necessary as is something that doesn't cling. This works for shape and fabric. Also, the larger size helps eliminate cling. I'm not looking for figure flattering. So while I agree with other reviewers that it "just hangs" I'm Ok with that. As it's somewhat cool I put a jersey turtleneck under it today. So what I have here is a great jumper. In the summer it will have to be a short sleeve shirt underneath. Don't know whether it's because of the bigger size, but it does seem to gap some under the arm. I'm very happy with my new jumper and buying another one in the only remaining color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victoria85 Great overall!
This dress is perfect for me, I wish it was longer though. Great to wear for travel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by roeroe Just wasn't for me
I was hoping I would like the way it looked but I wasn't thrilled - the size was perfect but it didn't look good on me. For someone who wants a black dress to throw on and go, it's perfect.

Dress it up with a blazer or sweater
Belt it with boots and leather jacket.
So soft and reasy to wear.

Fabric has a nice weight and drape to it - does not cling and skims over my pear-shaped figure. Fabric does not wrinkle and cardigans slip over the dress nicely. Neckline is not too low, which will make it a great dress for work. I'd love to see this in navy, dark green/olive, or chocolate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy48 Great Little Black Dress!
I read the other reviews for this dress and thought that it seems to fit us curvy or full figured girls best. I loved it. Am full figured and love how the dress fits perfect in the bust and then falls straight down allowing for a very flattering look. I pair this with a little cardigan and I am good to go. You can make this casual or dress it up with heels and jewelry. Would love it in charcoal next year.

I was disappointed in this dress. I loved the color, but the fit is pretty bad.
