This dress is absolutely wonderful and checks all the boxes. Being a plus size lady I was a bit sceptical of wearing a wool in the long hot summer months in the deep south, but I am so pleased with my dress. It's soft, silky and is cool even on really hot and high humidity days.
This dress is so elegant! The orchid color is just lovely. I don't consider this a professional dress, it's more of a stay-at-home dress. As others have mentioned, the armholes are large and the pockets small. I sized down in order for it to fit on top.
There's a lot to love about the Sophia midi (pockets, great length, and--as always--delicious, breezy, easy-care fabric). Sizing is also great--it might run just a tad large, but not enough to be a bad thing. The one drawback? The armholes really are huge, as other reviewers have mentioned. For weekends and lounging, this is fine, but I CANNOT wear this dress to work without a jacket, which makes the best thing about it--it's breathable, temperature-regulating fabric--less effective. A shirt underneath takes care of modesty concerns, but looks too sloppy for the office (and again, makes it less cool and breathable). Disclaimer: I am in early-onset menopause with wicket hot flashes, so the temperature-regulation and breathability might be more critical for me than most purchasers. If you're OK wearing a shirt under this dress (or exposing a lot of bra/side boob), then it won't be a problem!
The fabric is very soft and I love the color. It swirls nicely around my legs which is fun. I don't usually do midi dresses so this is different for me, but I find I like it pretty well. It does feel a bit like a house dress because it's so loose, it feels very casual. I think it could be dressed up if you added a few pieces though. I've seen a lot of reviews complaining that the armholes are too big and the pockets too small. I did find the pockets inconveniently small, and at first the loose armholes were a major turn off. If I had been able to try it on before I ordered it I probably wouldn't have got it for those two reasons. That being said, the armholes are actually not as bad as I thought at first, and it's definitely wearable. I think it was partly just me having to adjust my ideas of how it should fit. Overall it is a well made dress in a pretty color made of a high quality fabric and I like it more than I was expecting to.
Hi Lucy. Thanks for letting us know! Your feedback is important to us. It looks great on you.
I had been contemplating purchasing the Rowena swing dress when I heard about the 100 day dress challenge. I hemmed and hawed and I’m glad I did. The Sofia Midi is more my style. It has the a beautiful silhouette and drapes nicely. I’ve washed it and hung outside to dry with no issues. Now, I’m looking forward to a Clara shirt dress.
