This is very cute! So far the extra small Wool& dresses fit me best (Brooklyn and Sierra) but I chose to go with a small for the Mara. My hips are wider than my narrow shoulders and I still have my “covid”belly. The Mara is *slightly* snug on my belly/hips but I still think it looks good. I look forward to throwing on some leggings or tights and wearing this throughout the colder months!
I am not sure I would refer to the Mara as a dress, even with flats, low boots or sneakers it felt like a long sweatshirt. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and comfortable but short enough that I am not 100% confident that my backside would be covered enough for my comfort. I tried with my black Axil leggins and I was on the fence. I ordered a navy pair to better match the dress. I am keeping it for casual wear. It is definitely more fitted, a bit tight (may be my size)...but I trust as the temperature drops I will reach for it often. I also like it enough I am on the wait list for the black version ( you snooze you loose in my case).
I just received Mara and I cannot wait until it is cool enough to wear her. I really like the shape. I normally wear a size Large in dresses and base the size off my bust measurement. For wool& dresses, I wear a medium in Rowena but for me in this style a Large is perfect. The weight of the soft terry is so comforting and cozy and the washed navy will be a great neutral.
I ordered this dress after seeing a 60-degree weather forecast for San Francisco in August. It was perfect! I paired this dress with jeans and imagine leggings and tights are also great matches. The length just hits the tops of my knees. For someone taller, this may be more like a tunic.
I’m actually looking forward to coming central Texas winter so I can wear Mara for weeks on end.
Love the Mara. It’s a heavier weight than the other dresses, and has a slimmer fit, so that it’s like a long tunic. The placement of the pockets work better on me than the other dresses I’ve tried. The pockets are towards the front and are flat, rather than loose and on the sides. This is more flattering for my body type (I am a full size smaller on my top than my bottom). I got it in a size Small; the other Wood& dresses I’ve tried are a better fit for me in XS.
