Love the dress, but it is very skinny and does not fit, even though I ordered a size larger than I normally would.

Beautiful well-made dress. Size chart runs small - I normally wear a size large, dress was approximately one full size too small.

VERY comfy and classy! I bought this for work, and it's great. I got the size small and I'm a 28G bust/26 waist/37 hips. It fits me very comfortably and is very flattering. It skims my figure without being too clingy. I have the sleeveless version of this too, and I love it! They can be tossed right in the washing machine and hung to dry, do not wrinkle even after being stuffed in my gym bag, and the fabric doesn't fade with washing. The sleeves are pretty long, if you have long arms. It's not too revealing despite my being rather busty. It's perfect for looking chic fast!

Love this dress, can easily wear it for a night out or at the office by changing up shoes and accessories. It is a pretty snug fitting dress, I usually wear an XS or size 2 but went for the S here because of the other reviews and the fabric. Glad I did! Very classy and timeless.

I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs., 34B and 30" waist. I also have this dress in a patterned black/tan design and since that fits perfectly, thought I'd order it in black. Ordered a M and wow! Fit is perfect and slight imperfections (i.e. a few extra lbs.) in the belly area and rear do not show as much as the tight-fitted Kamalikulture turtleneck dress I also ordered but will return. I'll be able to wear this for various functions including evening and conference wear, and funerals (sad to say). Looks great alone and with a business blazer. Love it!

Had to finally upgrade from an old wrap dress I purchased years ago, and this one was exactly what I was looking for. It is very form fitting, but because of the length and the neckline, it is conservative enough for work and can also be dressed up for a night out. I recently wore it for an anniversary dinner. Great buy!

Beautiful! Am 5'5", 120 lbs, and the small fit perfectly. Wore it to a bachelorette party, bridal shower, and a business dinner all in the same month. Versatile, well-made, comfy -- got loads of compliments! Love Zappos!

Beautiful dress. So elegant and the fabric quality like a much more expensive dress. It runs just a little small so if in between sizes then size up.

Very flattering dress for a curvy or full busted figure. I am usually a size 10. The medium fit snug but sexy, the large was way too big and hung on me. I decided on the medium as it flattered my bust-line (I am a 34DDD and it is hard to find necklines on dresses that aren't overtly sexy.) The dress was too covered up to wear this summer but I am looking forward to wearing it this fall and winter.

I am 57 yrs old and I bought this dress in a small and a medium. Both fit me but the medium just glides over my body like it was made for me so I will return the small. So sexy and yet not too revealing. I can wear a push up bra with it for nights out and show a little cleavage or wear it to the office with a regular bra. I love, love, love it. Got it for a wedding coming up. It is so different and unique. The fabric is great and not too thin or heavy. Looks like a wrap dress without all the fuss of worrying about things hanging out or coming open. I may get the black also.

I love this dress so much I bought it in two colors! It's well made, flattering and super comfortable. It's the only dress I own that I don't want to take off and put on casual clothes. Great find!

The dress was everything I imagined and more! The fabric, color, feel and look were exactly as I had pictured. The sizing was also perfect. Couldn't be happier with this dress!

I am 5'5, 136 lbs.-- and depending on styles take a small or medium -- and the medium is perfect for me. Very flattering and I think it will be a great work and dinner dress.

This is an amazing dress and quickly became one of my favorites. But...after about five wearings, the hem let go completely and because of the stretch fabric, it's not something I can repair myself. Zappos was great, replacing it for me even though the return period was over. The exact same thing happened to the replacement...after about 4 washings (delicate cycle), the hem at the bottom and one of the sleeves disintegrated again. Reached out to KamaliKulture directly, who offered me $25 off another purchase. Big deal! I still plan to take it to a seamstress to have it repaired because I love it that much, but it's really poorly made. By the way, I also own another KK dress and trench coat and both are holding up well. There's just something about this particular style that's sub-standard.

I have an hour glass figure & I just wanted to say that using a model this thin takes away from the dress. It's very difficult to look at her in that dress and try to picture yourself in it.

Disappointed in this dress. The seam just below the ruching was funky and gave me an odd bump on my hip. It just didn't lay flat. The material appears cheap. The arms were very tight and I do not have large arms. I am 5'8 and a fit 140 lbs and wear a size 6 or 8. I purchased this in a medium, the sizing was fine (except for the arms)...but I just couldn't justify spending this much on a dress that just didn't meet minimum standards. Returning.
