Ordered my usual size and it fits great. I'm 5'5", 165lbs and hourglass shaped. Ordered a large.
I love this dress- the fit, the warmth and softness of the fabric. The adjustable wrap tie makes it work well as a nursing dress too. My only complaint is that the pockets are WAY too small. Half the time, whatever I have in there falls out when I sit down. What’s the point of a pocket if you can’t even carry your phone in there?
Pros: beautiful drape, comfortable, fits as intended, classic look, versatile, pockets!
Cons: Wrap neckline is much too low to wear without some kind of extra coverage. Even if I wanted a sexy evening look, my entire bra gore would be on display, and since it's a faux-wrap, it really could have been placed higher. I wish the fabric were a little heavier; this is a nice four-seasons weight, but I was hoping for a bit more warmth. Length: it hits low/mid calf on me, which is typical at my height. Would love to see a shorter-skirt version (But not "petite." The waistline is already as high as I would want it.).
My main concern going forward is that it wears well enough to justify the price. I haven't needed to wash it yet, which is nice, but I don't know how the fabric will perform over time.
The fit of the Ellie is really flattering I wish the V wasn’t as low, but layering with different color camis and scarves gives it a new look. A hijab magnet also works great on the V. The fabric is super soft.
This dress was perfect for my mother's afternoon memorial service. I wore it with one of her scarves, semi-sheer black tights, and slim tie-up boots. Conservative and dressy enough for a service, but not boring. Also, this is a very comfortable dress. I wore it all day and hardly thought about what I was wearing, which was especially nice given the occasion. I'm 5'7", 156 lb, broad shoulders/athletic build. The medium was perfect.
