I am nearing the end of my 30 day dress challenge. I am a long time viewer of this site and chose this dress because others said it would work great to wear if you're nursing. I love the length and fabric. It truly is so easy to quick clean stains (even ones you think might be real bad) with warm water and hang to dry.
Despite the following critiques, I would buy this dress again. My only critiques of this dress are: the dress is slightly more loose and low at the chest when worn as a faux-wrap, and I wish the sleeves were slightly more fitted to make layering easier.
This dress is great to be casual or dress up for work.
Ordered in plum because I loved the rich color on the picture, but dress itself is much more pale -- I guess I should have known from it being called "plum" and not "maroon". I've attached two pictures -- one of me wearing the dress at night time (artificial light) and another of the dress in the daytime (natural light). In addition to the color difference, the waist was also a tad bit loose and too high for me, and overall it felt too frumpy for me to really get over the color, so I will be returning. (Could maybe be solved by sizing down, but this is my first time ordering and I thought I measured myself correctly.) I appreciated the reversibility and thought the length and overall style was nice, just not a great fit for me.
Wool&, make this dress in a dark red like the picture!!
Hi Jackie, thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear the color was not what you expected.

Brooklyn is a lovely dress, but wasn’t quite right for my tall, pear-ish shape. According to the size chart, my bust is size L, and my waist and hips are size XL. Based on other wearer’s photos and comments on the Facebook page, I chose to size all the way down to size M long. (M is my size in Sierra.) I loved the way the dress fit—the faux wrap portion laid nicely on my chest, the waist elastic was comfortable, and the skirt was body-skimming rather than flowy. The fabric was so soft and light. But the hemline was about 3” above my knees, and that is not my favorite look for myself. If the skirt had been longer it would have been a keeper (or if it were fuller I could have worn pants or leggings without the seams on those showing through the skirt fabric). I particularly liked the way the sleeves looked—similar to my Cora, but a little bigger. I was sad to pass on Brooklyn.
Hi Dana, Thank you for your review! We do recommend going by the posted size guide, as you may be happier with length and flow of the skirt in a larger size, since this dress is designed to have a bit of swing in the skirt. Please send the Help Desk an email if you'd like help finding the best fit for you, or if you have any questions about the return/exchange process.
I like these sleeves, and the length of the "regular". The waist was at my natural waist.
The top was very roomy, unlike other Wool& dresses. The extra fabric close to the armpit was not attractive.
I bought this and a different style in Plum, and this one was much grayer and not as bright. Weird!
Also, I did not realize this did not have pockets.
Even if the small would fit better, there's no point in paying this much for a dress with no pockets and not 100% natural fibers. Am returning.
Hi Anna, Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear you love your other dresses from wool&. Please give the help desk a shout if you have any questions about the return process!
I bought all 3 colors in size M long. I found the length to me good (hit at top of knee) but there are a few critiques. The waist is short for a size long, the elastic is just above my natural waist. The top half of the dress sizing/volume is very inconsistent. I was only able to keep one of the three due to the volume discrepancies of the three dresses, all size Medium. Very disappointed in that aspect. Probably would not buy again for those reasons. For this price point, those issues should all be resolved before hitting the market.
Hi Jill, thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you saw inconsistencies in your dresses. This is not something we want our customers to experience, and we are happy to help you get this sorted out. Please reach out to our help desk so we can look into this further!
