    This dress was not available in a medium which I normally wear but it did come in a small. I keep putting in the cart then taking out, thinking it would be way too small as one reviewer mentioned. As I have a bit of a belly I was really worried about this size. Ended up giving it a go since National says there would be no problems returning.

    Now that I have received it and its fits perfectly and is ultra comfortable and is loose over the belly and hips, I am thrilled with my purchase. So glad I added to the cart.

    This dress will be perfect for our hot, humid Houston summers. The fabric is feather light but doesn't show through at all. Dreamy is a great way to describe this summer casual dress. I only wish y'all had more in other pretty prints and colors.

    I ordered this dress, and had to return it because it was too big overall. I ordered a Medium, which I usually wear, but in this more fitted style dress, I need a Medium Petite, it's just too large in the armholes, the torso length - I don't mind the length of the skirt itself, I love long lightweight dresses in the summer - but this one, I just couldn't keep due to fit overall. Otherwise, I found the fabric delightfully lightweight, I have no problems with it, and had it been available in a petite size, I would have kept it, happily.

        I am 205 lbs. and 5' 4" tall and a "pear shaped" gal. I gave this one a second chance after returning one awhile back. I have a Tummy and the last one (a large) was way too small in the waist. Thought about it a lot and decided that I could take it in under the side arms. Voila'! A perfect fit! Wore it for the 4th of July with red accessories. I love the fabric. So cool for Texas, and I'm glad I tried it again. Oh, and the darker band of fabric hits me right at the tummy area minimalizing my figure flaw.

                        This sundress was purchased with some trepidation because at this time of the year, I didn't know if it was truly a sundress or something heavier like a jumper. Much to my delight, it is a sundress made of the softest material and it is quite comfortable. I had to iron it the first time I washed it but hopefully I won't have to again.

                          Husband wanted to buy me more in different color- he gasped "that's a beautiful dress! when opened. He never does that.
                          Very comfy, launders well, minimum wrinkling.

                          Definitely too small in the midsection. Nice material but the style looked like something my grandmother use to wear...and I'm 61 myself!

                            Great summer dress, design of fabric and flow of dress make it very becoming. Cool and comfortable for hot summer in the south. Everyone compliments this dress when I wear it, with words like cute and pretty.

                              It looks great. I got so many compliments wearing it and others asked where I bought it. I have them look at the tag and they said they are going to order one.

                                I ordered this dress, and had to return it because it was too big overall. I ordered a Medium, which I usually wear, but in this more fitted style dress, I need a Medium Petite, it's just too large in the armholes, the torso length - I don't mind the length of the skirt itself, I love long lightweight dresses in the summer - but this one, I just couldn't keep due to fit overall. Otherwise, I found the fabric delightfully lightweight, I have no problems with it, and had it been available in a petite size, I would have kept it, happily.
