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.

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 a great dress. It is so flattering with the shirring across the front. My fiance loved it on me! This dress could easily be worn to work or for a night on the town. I dressed it up with a necklace and black platform peep toe pumps and wore it out for dinner and dancing. It was so comfortable and made me feel sexy without being too revealing. The quality of the dress is very good for the price. It reminds me of the Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress but at 1/3 the price with even softer, more comfortable fabric! The fabric is soft and slinky (not cheap) so I wore Commando underwear underneath (smooth, seamless, allegedly "invisible" undies) just in case to ensure no panty lines were showing in the back. My new favorite dress!

Wow. What a great dress. Perfectly soft and drapey. I usually don't like faux wrap dresses because they drape oddly, but this one is subtle (no excessive rushing) and sexy without being clingy. I would size up if you are contemplating. I'm usually a small in dresses, but on the recommendation of others sized up.

Beautiful dress! Very flattering style. I'm 6' tall and pear shape. This dress is long enough to be professional for work but could certainly be dressed up for evening .

I like this dress, but it's very fitting, and shows my bulges. I may reorder after toning up a bit. I am 5'5, 130 lbs, and a 32DD. Length of dress and in arms was perfect. Also, the dress has great coverage over the breast.

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.

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 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!

Pros: This dress fits my 5'6" 140 pound hourglass figure well. (This dress would fly for a breastfeeding mom, I'm well past needing that but think it's a nice feature.) Cons: It isn't special. It's trim, not skintight but snug enough it's dressy and made me a little self-conscious. The long sleeves and high neckline feel conservative, a bit lawyer-y, but covered up in an easy way to wear. But for a dressy dress...I want something a little bit special, maybe some silk in the fabric or one nice detail. This fabric is utilitarian polyester-y slinky, the dress is entirely wearable and practical...but no joy in it.

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.
