I've been waiting for a long time for the teal ellie to come back, and when it did, I managed to snag one. I love it. It's flattering, comfortable, and easy to wear. I did feel like it stretched a little, but hopefully it'll tighten up. Love it!
I was nearly finished with my 100 days in Rowena when a black Ellie became available. I loved it the minute I put it on! I bought a second Ellie in teal recently too. This dress is so comfortable, while feeling a bit sexy with the v-neck. I have also worn it backwards with a belt and it looked great! I would buy one more in another color, or many more colors if there was a second wrap style with short sleeves. I was worried about the 3/4 sleeves, as I usually prefer long or short sleeves, but it is very comfortable.
I will note that I my measurements did indicate that I might need the next size up in the waist, but it fits fine. It is definitely a faux wrap, so it would be difficult to tighten the tie if you have a much smaller waist than what the suggested measurements are.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I love the dress and how I really don’t want to wear anything else!
I'd love to get this dress in Red, or Wine or a pretty royal blue! Please consider more colors.
I wanted this to work but I would have had to always add a cami or display too much 😏. I think it would look fine on someone endowed enough to support the low cut front.
For the office, I might wear a camisole underneath to give a bit more neckline coverage, but that would depend on how conservative your office is. Honestly this is a classy and classic sillouette, and I see it being in frequent rotation for a polished (but comfortable!) professional look or for going out.
Depending on the style of the dress, I can be on the fence between a medium or a large, but I was glad I went with the medium, since I have narrow shoulders. I did not have any issues with gapping or being able to see my bra.
I bought Elle midi wrap in black, size small. This dress is perfect! Bought it about 2 weeks ago & have been wearing frequently since then.
The wrap style is flattering & the fabric is so comfy... I was initially hesitant when I saw the word "wool". Previously, I'd been buying the cheaper cotton ones from Amazon but had always been disappointed after a few washes with how they started to sag. I'm hoi this holds up better.
Sizing was great. The wrap leaves a bit more cleavage than I'd like, but I've been wearing a tank under this.
I bought this dress as my reward for completing the 100 day challenge. Teal, small. I love it in every way as a spring/summer/fall dress but wow the neckline needs something. My bras all hang out. Trying to decide whether to add a snap/hook&eye or just sew it shut. :/
This dress is amazing for those of us with an hourglass figure. The faux wrap defines the waist, the neckline shows a little cleavage (or you can wear a cami under it for a more modest look), and the flared bottom hugs my hips without suffocating them. Ocean teal is also an amazing color.
I chose Ellie in Ocean Teal for my first Wool& dress/challenge dress. I needed my dress to be professional enough to wear to work, and shaped to flatter my figure. I have an “ample bosom” and the v-neck wrap style of the dress did accommodate but was too deep and revealing for working in healthcare. It did stretch a bit between washings. I solved that problem by wearing wool or cotton camisoles underneath. Being winter in Central Illinois, I also wore leggings and boots most days. I did not have issues with static cling, except for one day with synthetic leggings. A good rub down with a dryer sheet solved that issue. I found the length of the long style to be what I hoped for-below the knee. I did the challenge while recovering from a medical issue and I gained weight. The stretch of the dress accommodated my body changes.
The fabric is lovely. I have washed the dress 6x in the 100 days. Always cold, gentle cycle. I only washed because I noticed a food stain and found Dawn original dish detergent easily took care of stains, and Soak wool wash is great for overall gentle cleaning. The dress is very comfortable and easy to wear. The weight of the fabric was just right for layering in very cold weather, and not so much layering in moderate temps. The 3/4 sleeves were fine, and I think I’d like the dress just as well with a sleeve above the elbow or to the wrist. I’d love to have a shorter sleeve (rather than a sleeveless) for warmer months. I thought at first I should order the XL, but seeing other reviews I decided to try the L. L was definitely the right choice for this style.
I have always been a fan and wearer of wool, though I haven’t found many wool dresses in recent years. I was thrilled to find Wool& and these great dresses at a moderate price point. I look forward to new styles and colours. I’m torn between picking from what’s on offer now, or waiting a bit for new colours to spend my reward!
