Certified organic cotton with Lycra®
I purchased this dress in both black and graphite in size Regular Large. The black dress fit beautifully. I absolutely love it. I can dress it up for an evening out or wear it casually. However, the graphite dress in the exact same size was 2 inches shorter. Way to short for my liking. I returned the graphite dress. That is the only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars. However, I am now ordering the dress in Midnight and hope it is the right length.
Every spring I buy the dress in 2 colours and I am happy all spirng/summer. Comfortable, stylish, can be dressed up or down in a jiffy. Love the length! Most of the dresses are to short for me. You don't want to look like a twen when 57. With this dress you look mature but not boring.
I'm 5'4" and weigh 118 lbs - the proportions on this dress are a bit off for my body. It has a lot of volume in the body and, basically, fit ok in the shoulders. However I was concerned if there was any shrinkage when it was cleaned the top would be tight. I didn't love it so I returned it.

This dress is perfect in every way: style, fit, comfort, and wear. At work, at dinner, and in travel, it is my new go-to dress. Soft, breathable organic cotton knit is one of the best fibers for warm summers - and it looks great!
I love this dress! I got it 3 or so years ago in the slate color and have always felt very comfortable yet put together in it, along with great sandels & necklace. The new one is a bit more fitted and shorter, fitting even better on me (I'm 5' & about 112#) and have the petite petite. The organic cotton is a great addition.
I got this in a petite XS based on the website recommendation, which is one size down from usual. It fit me, but, it did not complement my body type at all. It hung straight down from the chest area, which made it look sack-like. It would have looked better if it was fitted through my midsection. Too bad, because the material is beautiful. Maybe it would look better if you are very tall and slender?
I was disappointed in the quality for the price. The dress shrunk after two washes and the color has faded. Now that it's too short I don't want to wear it.

Thank you for speaking with us and verifying that you had put this item in the dryer, so that is why it shrunk and faded. The care instructions are: •Machine wash cold, gentle cycle •Use only only non-chlorine bleach as needed •Line dry to preserve appearance
First dress I have been able to wear in years. My figure is very hard to fit, and I generally wear separates. I'm just thrilled. A friend was wearing this same dress, and I asked where she bought it, and so here I am.
Perfect! I love the way it fits. It is casual yet elegant and chic. Very feminine and classic, and easily accessorized to fit all sorts of occasions. I purchased a XS though S would probably work as well for my 5'7", 143 lb slight frame.
