Reviewed by Bike and walk from Texas on Sunday, August 4, 2013The price is great with the Sierra Trading Post sales, the dress is wonderful and my lady friends complimented me in it. I liked it so much I bought another in a different colour!
Reviewed by Bike and walk from Texas on Sunday, August 4, 2013I really like the unique style of the dress, it's easy to wear feeling and that it is also easy to clean.
Reviewed by Customer Care from mn on Wednesday, July 24, 2013Thought the front was attached to the dress, but it's huge like a balloon. It does attach on the bottom of course, but it's not pretty
Reviewed by catdiva from ohio on Thursday, July 11, 2013This dress is fashion oriented, so I can see that it might not be a meeting of the minds for everyone who tries it. It's constructed from double fabric panels, with a front panel cut in like a kind of elongated kangaroo pocket. When I was a child in the 60's, I used to be especially fascinated by the bubble dress, but I never got to have one because they went completely out of style for decades. These are times when every kind of style seems to be out there simultaneously, so you can find anything you like. I have worn this, and I really liked the look with a tie front shrug and black leggings. I got the pretty dove grey color in a size small and it was comfortable and true to size.
Reviewed by Mainiac from Portland, ME on Tuesday, May 21, 2013So, what you can't tell from the STP pictures is that the front panel on this dress hangs loose, from the neck to the hem. This makes the dress look a lot like a maternity dress, at least on me. However, the way that it LOOKS in the STP pictures will work, which means to take the front panel and tack it to the side seams at about hip height.
The dress is two layers of drapey rayon almost everywhere, except for the front underlayer, so it's one layer on the sides of the front. (The inner liner is fitted so this won't actually work as a maternity dress, just to avoid misleading you.) If you look at one of the light colored dresses, you'll see from the side of the gathering at the neck, there's a drapey layer that connects maybe six inches above the hem on the side. The result is that the dress looks fine from the front, but big and poofy from the side. Again, at least the way it hangs on me, it will be an easy matter to tack that front piece to the side seams at my hip height, and all will be well. A belt might also do the trick.
I'm not sure I love the bubble hem, but I'm just not sure.
This is overall larger and longer than I was expecting; I am 5"10 and a pear shape, and it's not too short (It's just above knee height, as it looks on the model, but that doesn't usually happen for me) and not too tight in the hips. So that's a win for me. You might want to size down if you're between sizes.
The fabric is lovely, and with two layers of it, this dress is surprisingly heavy. But I think it will work well for summer.
I took a gamble and got both black and bliss, and I'm glad I did. Bliss does not seem to me to be as rosy as it is in the picture; it's sort of a "nude" color.
