Background: I’d read the reviews so I knew a bit about this particular offering and decided it was probably not the dress for me; however, it might be the nightshirt for me! Based on that I ordered it intentionally to be large on me. Normally I’m M/L.
I ordered an XL. Turns out I wished I’d chosen a L as it would’ve been plenty roomy, but I’d already worn it do exchanging was not an option. As a nightshirt, it is a winner - for me at least. Even in the heat of this HOT summer and it’s long sleeves, I’ve worn it every night since it arrived and I’ve lounged around in it plenty too. Since I sized up approximately 2 sizes, it means it was longer than if I were in my normal size and I enjoy that extra length. As a dress, even in a smaller size, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be near as happy as I am using this as a nightshirt.
I find the Henley style too sporty and youthful for me. But as a house dress, even as sleep wear, the Georgia is perfect! For that purpose I chose the calming charcoal heather, and sized up from M to L. It is a bit roomy, but comfortable. Since I am short, the dress covers my knees which I like. I know I will like it even more in the winter time!
I held off on ordering this dress until I saw Rebecca Eby styling it and posting pictures in the mauve. I would normally order the gray but took a chance and got the Mauve color. This is my weekend go to dress and it looks so good layered with vests or sweaters. I would love it in either a darker gray or the purple sage color that has popped up this spring. (I've ordered a tank in this color and am eagerly awaiting its arrival). In the upcoming fall and winter this dress will become a work staple for me because of its long sleeves and the lighter weight material so I can tuck it into my work pants and wear it as a henley shirt.
The fabric is very very soft, buttons are great for nursing. But sleeves just fit while the rest of the dress is very loose and baggy. I am 6 months postpartum and still loosing weight. I opted for a large because I have wide shoulders and long arms. But the stomach area is rather wide.
Also ordered to Canada and got nailed with a very large duty fee

I love how it fits. More casual than my other dresses (Margo and Clara). Super comfortable.
