I am an older lady who prefers body coverage, so the longer length of this dress is wonderful. I am 36-30-40 with short body. The waist band and shirt fit perfectly, with attractive drape, neither too form-fitting nor too voluminous. The top is shaped for someone with larger bra cup size, so is sloppy in the bra area. This, along with the rather wide V-neckline, is not attractive on me. I wish it came in a jewel or high neckline.
I ordered a Halftee, hoping it will add the coverage I need. I am keeping the dress mainly because the fabric is heavenly!
I LOVE this dress. Very flattering. And comfortable. Not going to lie; I wish it were 2-3 inches shorter, just below knee (I'm 5'3" and it hits me mid shin). But I LOVE IT and may order it in another color!
I read a lot of reviews and tried both a large and medium. Neither worked for me.
The large didn't fit as nicely in the bodice and looked slightly sloppy but didn't drawn as much attention to my less than toned tummy.
There was a lot of things going for this dress. Length was lovely, long sleeves, flattering bodiceon the medium and that neckline! I think the slight weight I carry on my stomach from six kids is really accentuated with this for and fabric. I think of myself as fairly slim build but between the pocket placement and the fabric, it draws too much attention to the wrong bits. Underwear lines are very visible as well. Overall not a keeper. Still searching for my challenge dress.
Sorry that these photos are so unflattering but I was trying to show the fit from different angles.
Overall I love this dress but two issues:  i do feel like the fabric shows underwear outlines on the butt because it is thin;  the low cut front is a little too low for my preference because it shows a bounce-proof sports bra (tho not a standard bra). The absolute positives are that the midi length is genuine and hits well below my knees (which I love) plus the Aegean teal color is truly magnificent. The Charlotte is indeed slender in the waist and hips, far more fitted than I was expecting based on prior Wool& dresses, so follow the advice to size for your hips.
I bought this for my 100 day challenge. It’s winter in Maryland and the dress is perfect for layering in the cold. I’m currently in Florida and it does get a little toasty when temps near 80. But the dress is super comfy and cozy, I wore it for two days of horrible holiday traffic travel and I’ll wear it for the two days back. I’m having a lot of fun with the challenge and look forward to this dress being a staple in my closet for years. This dress is somewhat fitted in the waist so bulky leggings waistbands may look lumpy. That’s the only thing I don’t love about it so far.
