A sporty dress that sports sassy style and athletic attitude. Double-layered for coverage yet delightfully lightweight, with a flirty A-line shape, flattering princess seams, and an oh-so-fun racerback. Contoured scoop neck. Built-in shelf bra. Sleeveless. Above-knee length. Poly/rayon. By Soybu. Imported.
This is a really comfortable dress, and I loved how it had a built in bra and a lining, but I thought it was too "young" for me (a little short, mainly, even though I'm only 5 foot 3). I had my 13 yo daughter try it on before sending it back. It looked great on her and she even commented on how comfortable it was (and she's not a "dress" girl). So we're keeping it after all!
I am a slim gramma size 6 and the medium fits like a glove. The quality and the cut of this is perfect for someone who is trim and looking for something cool and comfortable to wear. I am 5'2" 123 lbs, and thinking about getting another one, as the shelf bra is perfect for 36 b's.Love this dress! Just above my knees.

Fit is very small!

I would have given this dress 4 stars if the sizing weren't so far off from my usual size, especially from Garnet Hill. I'm 5'3" tall, weigh 130, and I ordered a M in this dress (though in many Garnet Hill dresses I'm a S). I liked it well enough to exchange for a L, which has not come yet. I think the dress will work out once I get the right size.
I got this XL or my daughter who is a 12-14. Not even close. Luckily, I have a grand daughter who is very tall and slender and wears an 8. It had room and wasn't skin tight but it fit her perfectly and she loved it. The fabric is good quality and not floppy and it looks very well made. Very very cute if it fits.
