I had a credit and decided to order this dress despite so many negative reviews about the fit. So glad I did, I love this dress! I like that it is fitted and has pockets. Perfect LBD for me.
I work in a law office and Charlotte is comfy enough for long days at my desk and professional enough for court appearances and meetings with clients. She's easy to slip a blazer or sweater over with no bunching. Truly nobody has noticed I've been wearing the same dress for almost two weeks because she's so versatile.
As far as fit goes, she is a slim fit. The static on the skirt was unreal for the first 24 hours, but I lay her over a metal hanger at night and haven't had a problem since.
I sized up in this dress, and it was kind of a mixed fit. I was afraid that the top and shoulders would be too large, but the top of the dress looks and fits just like my dresses that are one size smaller, so that's a win! But, the hip area is VERY straight and snug right below the waist, any flare in the skirt only begins about knee level. I at first thought I would not be able to keep it, but since it was on sale, and not returnable, I decided Tom just keep it and wear it at home. Well, after a few hours wear, the skirt relaxed and looks better, although still very slim fit. I am going to try washing and stretching the skirt sideways, but even if I don't get any more width, now that the skirt relaxed a little, it's wearable. It is an odd design though, even for a fitted dress, the upper hip is cut so slim that the pockets are obvious.
I decided to try Charlotte, and I’m glad I did. I’m similar in size to the model and a medium fits. I like the neckline, not too wide or low. The shoulders hit at the right place, and the waist is right at my natural waist. The skirt could be a bit more flare, but isn’t too tight. Aegean teal is one of my favorite Wool& colors, and goes with most of my wardrobe, and is easy to style with a cape, Moto jacket, cardigan, jean jacket , scarves , belts for different looks. Kind of a blank palette that can be changed up easily. There was a lot of static when I first removed the dress from the package, but a day later it is settling down.
I pre-ordered this as my first Wool& dress and was so excited when it arrived. I wore it a couple times, but I just don’t feel confident in it. The dress accentuates the small pooch in the middle from having 3 kids, to the point where the pooch is more prominent then my breasts, and the pocket lines are very obvious showing through the outer layer. Will not be keeping this dress.
