I just love this dress! I’m not doing the 100-day challenge but I do have 3 Rowenas now and interchange them several times a week. They are so versatile! Please excuse the pic - I don’t have a full-length mirror in my house so had to use the bathroom at work. Just wanted to include a pic because the reviews with pics are what helped me finally pull the trigger on one of these dresses :)
The long version of the dress in the small size fits my shoulders and bust very nicely, but the lack of a waist enhances the size of my lower half, unless I add a belt or a shirt or sweater that at least separates my upper from my lower parts. If I add that, the dress looks and feels good on me.
The sleeves fit (in length) just barely when I got the dress. After about 12 days of the 100 day challenge and 1 real washing, they are solidly 3/4 length. I actually did try to stretch them a bit to get longer. That often works, but did not on this dress.
The dress does not attract my dogs' fur.
The fabric is very nice. It has just enough texture and drape to look good, flowy but not entirely without structure.
I have had a little bit of static in church. I don't know why there. We have wooden pews?
I'm not sure if I should have gone with the size medium. That might have given me longer sleeves but I'm worried that the skirt portion would have been too full. I also have a good fit through the shoulders and the bust with the small.
This dress is my Goldilocks dress -- it fits me just right. I'm doing the 100 day challenge -- I'm 11 days in, feeling very comfortable!
The dress looked like it was long enough in the pictures but it came way up above my knees when I lifted my arms. I'd like to try a dress but I need to wait for a longer one with sleeves. I have returned it for now.
I really wanted to love this dress - the color (charcoal heather) was beautiful, the texture was lovely, and I was excited after a long wait to participate in the 100 day challenge. Sadly, my weight gain happens arms-first, and my brain never remembers this fact, so when I switched my order from Maggie (short sleeves) to Rowena, I didn't realize that putting this dress on would be like trying on a pair of little girls' stretch pants with my torso. The sleeves were so snug that I couldn't get my arms in them all the way, and the way this made the dress stretch across my chest would have been comical without the crying. I had to return it. I'm sure this won't happen for everyone, but if you have ever affectionately described your arms as "lamb shanks" or compared them to a smaller person's thighs, this may not be your dress.
I order the 1x. I like the fit of the dress. Wish it was a couple of inches longer in the length. Sleeves are a great length for me as I have long arms and they reach my wrists.
I ordered the long Small Ro. I was afraid to order the small because I am never a small in anything. After reading reviews, and seeing that a black medium long Ro was not available. I dove in and got the small thinking I would have to send it back. It fit perfectly! I feel so classy in just the basic dress! Love it!
When I need to get to NYC for a meeting , I fling on this dress, add some jewelry , shoes and presto I feel great and hopefully look great. There is something unique about the fabric which moves perfectly when I walk NYC fast. The length of the sleeves are perfect. I wear either the regular length or the longer length of the dress depending on the weather . I have two more dresses on order and am delighted my suitcase will be a lot lighter when I go to london this fall with these marvelous dresses. Thank you Wool&.
It goes below my knees, which I was worried about. Sleeves can be pushed up without stretching out, it’s flattering, and it really doesn’t hang on to smells, surprisingly. I hang it up, inside out, at night and have been wearing it for four days so far. A t-shirt could NEVER.
Love this dress! It's my foundation piece for my capsule wardrobe. Keeps me cool even in my humid environment. I highly suggest adding one if you don't have it already.
