I assumed it was a true wrap around dress instead of a mock style.. However, it is VERY COMFORTABLE. I like my dresses roomy and soft.
-direct quote from my husband. After two years of swing dresses he REALLY likes Ellie.
I tried this dress over a year ago and wasn’t feeling it, but have since lost a little weight and now understand the buzz.
For this dress, I followed the size charts; whereas with the swing dresses I usually order down one size from what the charts recommend.
For years, wrap dresses never worked for me because I’m high waisted and the ties never hit me at the right spot. The tie on this dress hits me in the right place, accentuating my waist.
Ellie is the wrap dress I’ve spent nearly two decades looking for. Thank you Wool&!
I am very pleased with the Ellie Midi Wrap! The color, the fit, the style... everything is as expected or better. I studied long and hard and waited a number of months after finishing my 100-day challenge before making my selection for a reward dress. I didn't want to "settle" just to have the decision made. I was confident from photos and descriptions others provided that garnet would be a good color for me and I took measurements, making sure to pay attention to the comments that advised which measurements were the most important for a good fit. I'm taller than even most tall ladies--6'0" and 200#. I'm very pleased. It's the perfect dress to add to my closet.
I love the color (marionberry) and fabric. Faux wrap dresses in general have worked for me in the past, but that’s when I could wear a small. I’ve put on weight and purchased a medium, which mostly fit, but the V would not stay in place - it just flops open. If I can get back to wearing smalls, I may try this again. This is the second wool& dress I’ve tried, and they just do not seem to fit my body, which is sad because I am enamored with the IDEA of these dresses.
The most surprising thing about this wool dress is how thin and comfortable it is. I don't usually wear wool - it makes me itch. This dress is only slightly itchy in the arms. This is the third dress I ordered from Wool&. I returned the other two, one for fit and the other for color. I really like this dress. I'm 5'2" and I ordered a size S and it fit with some room to spare. I'm not crazy about the Midi length because I'm petite and this length is not flattering for people like us so I hemmed it myself. The Modern Red color is bold but classy and I love the wrap feature though I wish it was a sash like the T-shirt dress. I might use the cut off part to make a wide sash. It's a little low cut so I wear a camisole under it. I wore it to a dinner party and got lots of compliments. Overall, I am very pleased.
