Love this dress so much ordered a second one. Have worn it with v neck in front and in back. Have worn it in 90 degrees weather and in 60 degrees w tights. I actually like that it has no pockets b/c I think the way it lays us much more flattering. I ordered hijab magnets for front or wear a cute cami w it. My only hope is that it is a investment piece and is of a quality that is long lasting. Time will tell. I think this dress is the versatile and flattering they have for my body type which is hourglass. Thrilled with it.
I bought this dress in black and I love it! I’m usually between a small and medium and I bought a small because all the reviews said to size down, and that is what I recommend as well. I am 5’2” so the neckline is proportionately a bit lower on me than I would like but it’s not super low.
I like this dress. I ordered a medium because I have a small upper body and a larger lower body and it was the right choice because the upper is still a little bigger than I would like. In the more fitted wool& dresses, a large is the right size for me. The color was a little more purple than maroon, but that's my only complaint. The long was a great length for a business casual dress.
I have this dress (original version) in black and posted a rave review a couple of years ago. I was excited to order the Marionberry, thinking it would be a lovely rich colour like in the picture, a deep saturated wine colour, or you know, like a marionberry. It is in fact a very basic purple. Not very saturated, and not at all like the photos. I don’t love it and this makes me sad. Fit-wise, I got the same size as I have in black, which is a M Regular. Less room in the top. I liked the original more in terms of fit. I usually wear a size 10 in the US and 34E bra size.
I inadvertently ended up wearing this dress in Portugal for 21 days straight. It was much hotter than I expected and I only had one other outfit, that saw one dinner on the entire trip. I was only able to wash the dress twice but it never smelled. It paired well with sneakers and sandals, and did great with a 24L backpack on my back (no front opening) and public transportation. I will definitely get another dress style and travel with two on my next adventure.
