I love Fiona. Great dress for fuller, hourglass figures. I own several Fiona’s in different colors and they were my go-to dresses during extremely hot and humid summer, for gardening, walking for exercise and running errands. Long sleeves offer shoulder protection from sunburns and warmth when entering shops or restaurants with frigid AC. Loose flow of dress was comfortable and cooling in triple digit heat. Teal paired with casual vest was perfect attire for my 50th high school reunion, plenty of pockets so no purse needed.
I ordered Fiona on a whim trying to find a dress I thought I could do the 100 day challenge in. I didn't think it would work on me; since I haven't liked the elastic waist style before. They tend to make my hormonal pooch look very prominent (which is weird, because it's pretty small!) I ordered the teal colour since I like warm tones like brown, dark blue, greenish blues, dark purple etc. The dress fits very well. For reference, my measurements are 28 underbust, 35-36 at the fullest part of my bust, 25 inch waist, 33 inch high hip, and 37 inch low hip. I have a very short waist, and very long legs. My inseam is about 30 inch. The dress hits me above the knee, whereas on the models it is more of midi it looks like. The dress is very easy to style! Overall very pleased.
Unfortunately, I decided to return this, not because of the quality, but the style and color just didn’t work for me. It fit perfectly.
I am new to Wool& so it took me awhile to figure out what style I liked in dresses. I am a 58 year old pear shape and wear Loft curvy jeans. I am a 4 curvy at Loft and a small on the top. I tend to like dresses that have some kind of shape to them or an emphasis on the waist although my waist is not super small. This dress makes me feel pretty and gives me the options of dressing up with a pretty necklace or scarf or dressing down with leggings and boots. I bought black because that was the safe bet, but in the future I will probably branch out and choose a color! The fabric is soft and not itchy. I am very sensitive to wool and frankly refuse to wear it, but I have recently fallen in love with the ease and comfort of merino wool. That is what brought me to Wool& . I feel like the top of the dress fits well but my shoulders tend to be narrow so it seems to hang a little bit off of my natural shoulder spot. It's possible I could try for an XS but this one is already washed and in the closet ready to be worn. Perhaps I will try an XS in the future.
