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.
I had hoped to use this dress for travel and everyday wear. Unfortunately, the black fabric was so sheer it was see-through. I sent it back.
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.
This is the perfect dress! I am a petite 5'2" - wrap dresses rarely work for me as they flop open at the top. This dress stays closed and I did not have to tack the v-neck together! I love all the ways I can style this dress so that it looks different every day! Added plus - cat hairs seem to brush right off of the fabric!
