I did order an XL, It was too big. I returned it and ordered a L. The fit is perfect but I will hem it. I am 5' 0" tall.
I tried several styles, sizes, and colors, and landed on the Willow regular length in XS. FWIW, something about the Rowena just felt too much like a nightgown to me. I like the cut and style of the Willow, and feel it will be more versatile with layering. At 38, I typically prefer dresses at or just below my knees, whereas the regular length in the Willow is definitely above my knees. I tried the long version of the Willow, and likely would have gone with that if they offered it in an XS. The S long, however, just felt like a sack. Overall, I do think the black is very chic, and the grey is a good staple as well (although it is lighter than their photos make it appear, and definitely not charcoal). I have a lot of wool products in my relatively small wardrobe, so I’m looking forward to experimenting with both of these and hopefully will have them in my closet for many years to come!
Great dress. Comfortable and fits well. Being a mature woman, I needed the neckline of the Willow. The pockets are a definite plus. The charcoal color is perfect for adaptability to various colors of accessories. I am definitely #team basic!
I really wanted this dress to become one of my base, go-to garments for work but I'm struggling with the fit. The fabric is terrific, even though it is knit, it doesn't look like t-shirt material. The fit, however isn't the greatest for me. The sleeves are a little snug (I'm told they don't look it) and the arm holes seem to be cut pretty small so the seam is right up into the armpit. The shoulder seams keep sliding back so the v-neck rides up, this is the most irritating part. The rest I could tolerate. I'm pretty short and ordered the shorter version since I figured it would hit me around the knees and it did, so that's a plus. The pockets are great!
Hi Heidi, thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear the fit isn't what you had hoped for, but happy to hear you love the fabric! Please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Experience Team if you'd like any suggestions on fit or sizing: email@example.com.
Too low cut and too tight in the upper arms for me. also, I love my sierra tank SO MUCH and the fabric is just not as thick and luxurious. I think it would work for someone more "willowy". I wish you would make sierras with short or long sleeves. PLEASE???? love wool&!
Thanks for your feedback, Amy. We'll pass this along to the team!
I was hesitant to order the Willow because of the v neck cut, which doesn't always work with my fuller chest. I'm generally slim with a very large cup size (32G). I took a small in the Rowena and a small maggie was way too big on me, so despite other reviews about tight arms, I ordered the xs willow. I'm very glad I did. It is true that the arms are tighter than in other dresses so if that's an area that you know you will need extra fabric in, I'd size up. For me, it was tighter fitting, but not uncomfortably or unattractivly so, and after a few wears has relaxed a bit and now fits perfectly. The drape and swing on this are perfect. It feels more casual than my rowena as well, which is nice as I wanted it for daily wear. Overall, I'm really happy with this, and will likely get another in this cut when I do happen to need new clothing.
I really like the dress. I am a flight attendant and this is almost the perfect travel accessory. I only wish the material was a little heavier and the dress could be just a tad longer.
5'5 115, long legs, short torso, narrow hips, B cup. ordered a Small I was worried the dress would look too straight on me since I don't have much curve, but it fits and feels great! top is slightly loose, but I love the open neck and breathability. I'm very active and outside a lot and this dress definitely heats up in the underarms if it's warm out. I wouldn't mind a slightly tighter fit (not fitted), there are several inches of wiggle room in this thing. Again, prob more to do with my narrow hips. Overall happy with the size I ordered. I think if I ordered XS it would be too small in the shoulders and upper arms
Love this thing. Easy to clean, swingy and fun. Doing the 100 Day Challenge.
Loved the dress; ordered a large and found the shoulders and sleeves were sized for a midget. Please remember that not all women have small shoulders and sticks for arms. I would love to have a dress with sleeves and shoulders that fit. Will be returning the dress, sadly.
