I love this dress! I’m a lactation consultant and breastfeeding mom myself and need a dress that I can work in and nurse in. I picked the size that my measurements suggested, for a more fitted style I could go down a size, but for nursing this relaxed style works perfectly. I’ve also grown very attracted the the relaxed fit all Wool& dresses afford. I have tried on the: Rowena, Brooklyn, and Midi dress, as my mom and 2 sister are also doing the 100 day challenge. None I found as flattering or as Luscious as this dress. I’m a curvy hour glass figure and need the tie at the waist. I really like the woven fabric. I’m on day 70 of wearing it every day and I wash it about once a week, or more often if my kids, 15m and 4y, smear me with peanut butter. I also wear a woven wrap to carry my kids and I have no other clothes that have held up so well the the wear is causes. I wear the younger a few hours a day and you can’t see any wear on the dress. One thing to consider if you’re a breastfeeding and working mom is that this dress is really hard to pump in. If you have to pump a lot go with the Midi, that I can attest works well to nurse or pump when the arm hole is pulled to the side. If there are any critiques of have of this dress it is that I wear the sleeves rolled up past my elbow most days and I wish there was a loop and button I could use to keep them up. Also, very minor, I don’t like the little loops that hold the belt in place. They look odd when I wear the dress tucked into pants as a shirt, which is so great, and they tend to catch on things. But I do have to say they are sturdy as neither has broken! But, both are minor and over I would but this dress again and again. I really have benefitted from the refocus wearing the same dress ever day has given me about my wardrobe. This dress was a big splurge for me but worth every bit.
I was a little concerned about this dress due to other reviews that indicated it wasn't good for curvy women, but I love it! It looks great and the fabric is very nice. You can tell it's well-made. The arms are not too tight, which is a problem for me sometimes. I'm a little on the short side and prefer my dresses a little shorter, so I'll be removing an inch or two from the bottom, but it would be perfectly fine as-is. The pockets are nice and deep, so I won't have to worry about stuff falling out. My only wish is that the sleeves had more buttons so I could roll them higher if I wanted. Overall, a great dress; my boyfriend loves it; and I'm excited to put it to the test on my travels.
This dress fits me so incredibly well everywhere but the arms. They are a little tight for me and I don't know if getting back into climbing in the next few months is going to help, with my forearms gaining muscle.
The quality of the fabric is unique to any merino I have seen, this is my first time owning woven merino and it feels more resilient than any of the knitted merino I own. I have also only worn the dress out one time so far (thanks covid) and have already recieved a compliment from another lady :) The teal color pops maybe just a tiny bit less in real life but it is still totally gorgeous.
Looking forward to wearing this dress for 100 days when we get a little closer to fall.
Hi Hazel. Thanks for your review, happy to hear that you're loving your Clara! We hope the dress is the perfect 100 day dress for you.
This was a bit of a splurge and I am feeling like the quality and versatility are very worth it. The dress shipped quickly and has turned out to be a welcome quarantine work from home item as it is semi-professional for the video calls while also being comfortable. I spent a lot of time reading the reviews, looking at the sizes and how people described the fit. I know that I need a waist for my figure so the Clara Shirt Dress was the only style on my list. I went with black for now to really use this dress as a staple but could see myself getting one of the beautiful colors next time.
I actually like this dress more than I expected to, though it is very much a cool weather dress. Its rather warm. My only complaint is that its a little tighter in the shoulders than I would like, but I think it might be too big if I went up to a large. That being said, I love the color. It looks professional, and is a perfect length on me, and I can easily see playing with it for a range of styles
