All good things! I ordered this dress for two weddings I am attending this month. I got it today and it fits great! I am rather curvy (37/31/42) and ordered a 12. The dress is a tiny bit loose, but it looks better that way. I know a 10 would have been too tight, particularly in the rear end. I have a large chest (34DDD) but there is plenty of material in the top for that - no cleavage and no stretching. I am 5'5" and the skirt comes just to my knees. The material is true to color in the picture and very good quality. The lining makes it fall just right and it's not itchy at all. There is a side zipper that I didn't have any problem with, even at the seam between the two fabrics. I am accessorizing with nude colored heels, gold bangles, a whimsical pink flower ring, and dusty rose clutch. It's a great conservative dress that flatters in the all the right places. I highly recommend! November 8, 2011
Pretty and versatile dress I love this dress. I can see myself wearing it to the office and then straight to an evening out w/ friends afterwards. True to my theory, I had to go down a size to 0 (2-in-1 and wrap dresses = size 0; shirt and sheath dresses = size 2). It's a bit of a squeeze to get in and out, but it fits really nicely. There is a small crease I can't seem to get out just under the belt on the skirt (causes it to poof a bit), but it doesn't bother me too much. I do wish the skirt had some kind of slit though.

Beautiful and comfortable dress I got this dress during the buy one get one free sale as the 'free' one that I didn't really care about. I have to say its now one of my favorites. It's comfortable and looks great, a flattering design even though its a bit of a conservative cut. I'm 5'5 and it falls to just a hair above my knee when standing. I weigh about 128 and am a 34c and the size 4 fits perfectly. It's comfortable enough to wear all day. Lined so it doesn't stick to your tights. Nice fabric and well made. All around great pick. Looks adorable with brown tights and the cute red skinny belt below. October 25, 2011
Great Dress but... it is very fitted around the bust. I am generally a size 4 but since my bra size is a 36D, I had to return the size 6 that I ordered and get a size 8. I also found the side zipper to be a pain in the butt but once I got the dress on it was worth the effort. October 24, 2011

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I LOVE this dress. It fits and flatters perfectly!! I bought it in my regular size (2) and it fit just right! I can't say enough great things about it! Gorgeous and versatile!!! October 7, 2011
Amazing Multi-Purpose Dress! When I first tried the dress on in my usual Limited size (4), I thought the waist was a bit loose and slightly high. I'm thin and petite at 5'4" and 115lbs, so I didn't want a dress that wouldn't accentuate my petite figure. Following the advice of the store manager, I went a size lower (2), and presto... the dress fit like a glove. -- The top of the dress is a beautiful, rich chocolate satin and the bottom is a classic brown tweed. It is flattering and multi-functional, which I LOVE! -- By itself, I can wear it anywhere, but the clothing accessories really make the dress pop. With the Herringbone Tweed Jacket, I can wear this dress to work... but when coupled with the Silver Obi Belt (not the black one pictured), it tranforms into an amazing holiday dress. I'm so happy with this purchase, and I will be wearing it several times this season! October 7, 2011
Nice Dress! I love this dress. I'm 5'8 and it hits my waist perfectly this dress is definitely a season must have. I love that the limited makes a variety of shapes and sizes and you just have to find the one that fits your body type perfectly. I hear people complain about the sizes but nothing is going to fit everyone the same way. October 5, 2011
