I had bought two of these hoping it would be a great summer buy, living in FL I'm always looking for little summer dress on a budget for the beach. The fit wasn't all that bad, it was reasonably flattering. Didn't need the extra padding it comes with in the bust. Too long for the heaviness of the fabric. The colors I got were a little more alarming-though reasonably accurate from the online picture. I considered hemming the dress, but because its polyester, I didn't want to deal with puckering. Also, polyester in FL in the summer is uncomfortable for heat/sweat reasons, so this was just an unsuccessful summer dress for me.

the fabric and price are great- but the padded bust area is totally unacceptable: the pads are for a size 2x smaller than the dress, and can't be removed without taking apart the seams. to wear this, i will need to put in way more effort than the dress is worth.
about the sizing: the XL is for a size 16-18 in the waist/hem, and the length is above the ankles and lower than bottom of calf- i am 5'6"

I read the review from a woman who said she was a size 10 with hips more like a 12 and probably could have gotten by with a medium. I am a 12 with hips more like a 14 so I went with a large knowing the XL would have been way to big in the chest. I was rather surprised the fit was fabulous. This is a nice dress at a great price. I bought two, the black and white leaf and the teal and black medallion, lovely.

I'm sad this dress didn't work out. Great price. Comfortable....but very weird padding in the the bust. The padding doesn't ly flat for me, and it's obvious the bust is padded. Unfortunately, this padding is not removable. Might work better for a bustier gal.

Incredibly inexpensive - incredibly comfortable. I doubted whether this would work with my size 16 body, but it does. I will wear it with a cami, or super thin tight-fitting tee, but it feels great to wear.
