This dress is everything!

I am 5'7" about 170lbs these days. I bought the Large long and love this dress. It is professional, flattering, and comfortable - what more could I ask for. Got compliments on it and it is definitely a staple in my wardrobe now. LOVE!

Perfect fit, color, fabric, everything

This is my second essential dress. My other one is in the regular length XL in marigold. I bought this one in a L long as I've lost a little weight, and it is perfect. I was a bit worried about the bust (for reference, I am 5'5", 170, 36G) but it is so flattering and doesn't pull across the chest at all. For anyone wondering, the regular length is not too short, but I like the way the longer length hits just at my mid knee.

I steam my essential dress rather than iron it, and it looks gorgeous every time. The color holds up well, too. I immediately got so many compliments on my new one. Also...hello, pockets.

Truly essential

I own this dress in three colors. It’s a staple for work and travel, and I can’t recommend it enough. Tip: I’m 5’8”, and I prefer the long length for work, especially when it’s too warm to wear tights.

Very comfortable, work appropriate

I love the material. The shape and fit are very comfortable, not too restrictive, and the neckline is attractive but not too deep a V. I plan to wear it to preach, and then to conferences and work things. Could be worn alone, with a blazer, or cardigan. I wish it were an inch or two longer, as that would feel more professional. I am 5’3” so I can imagine it being way too short if I were taller. As it is it is borderline.

Perfect cut, length, fabric

First time buyer and so impressed. I needed something light for hot DC summers, machine washable, and professional. Exceeded expectations.
