Pretty meets preppy in this classic polo dress crafted from smooth jersey in two punchy solids. Tie on the self-belt (in a bow for a sweet
look) or swap it out for a leather number for more edge. The details are country-club chic: cap sleeves and a collar to prop up or not.
Above-knee length with shirttail hem. Smooth midweight cotton/rayon/spandex. Imported.
The fabric is lightweight and the azalea color is very bright, both pluses as far as I'm concerned. However, I found that it runs too large for me in my typical size. I'm ordinarily a M in GH knit dresses, though sometimes a S, but generally I need the M unless the description says it is oversized, relaxed or something of that sort. I found the waist and hips very full and loose in this dress, which is not clear from the photo at all. I may try the S, although I'm not sure whether the dress may be too tight in the bust then. I have a fairly slim body, apart from the bust, which seems to be true to size. I really wish the photos were more revealing. I also didn't see anything in the description that would have helped me better pick a size.

We appreciate your feedback! Keep in mind we list measurements, including the waist under the 'Measurements' tab. If you need assistance with a freight free exchange to try a different size, give us a call 800.870.3513.
Tried this dress in Navy which is more of a dusty mid-blue shade, not a true navy. Sleeves are dolman style cap sleeves. I tried it in Size S, which was good in the bust, but a little snug in the hip. Size M was too large in the bust. If you have slimmer hips (not a Pear shape), then it should fit well.
