I can’t say enough good things about this Knit Dress, I am 5’1 about 148 pounds and I ordered a medium. The length is great and fit is great! I probably could have done a small but didn’t want it to be too short for work. Perfect bandage dress to dress up with wedges or heels or dress down with booties or sandals.I got this Knit Dress to wear to a funeral. I think it was appropriate for our casual country lifestyle, but this Knit Dress would be too casual for a more formal affair or a city funeral. The fabric is lightweight and a bit thin. The weather was warm that day (around 80ºF) but this bodycon midi dress is lightweight enough that I didn't feel too hot wearing it. I'm 172 Lbs and 5'4". I usually wear a 16 or XL. I ordered the XL in this style and it fits fine, but it is a bit short. I wore leggings and dressed it up a bit with a nice painted chiffon scarf.
Based on others reviews of it being very wide, I sized down to a small (I usually wear a medium, 6/8, have a small B bra size and like to hide my post baby tummy). I like the slimmer look of the small but if my bra size were any larger, it wouldn’t fit in the chest. Keep that in mind when you choose your size. The fabric is probably going to keep me battling static but nothing static guard or a dryer sheet in my purse can’t handle. The sleeve has an elastic band at the wrist and it flattering, not too long either. The length is appropriate for church or work and is slightly longer in the back. (I’m 5’ 4”) I think it’s very cute!I thought it would be useful to, as others have done, post a review mentioning my wife's size, which is 5 foot 3 inches and 113 pounds making her "petite"... this looked great on her ! :) .. she said it didn't "squeeze" her in a way that made her uncomfortable. And when you look at the very reasonable price on it, it's a no brainer - we were both very happy with this purchase ! (and yes I know this is basically a copy and paste of a review I pasted for another lingerie outfit purchased from amazon but as far as I'm concerned the same comments apply :P ... made the mistake of ordering from Frederick's for the longest time - never again ! I love amazon's far more lenient return policy if the lingerie just doesn't work out - of course make sure you select a "fulfilled by amazon" or "sold directly by amazon LLC" option to ensure a hassle-free return).
This black bandage dress is perfect! I am 5 ft and it hit right above the knee which is unheard of since I am so short! It flows beautifully and the arms are perfect and not too tight! No stretch at all though. This Knit Dress does not look like it came from amazon! Not lined - but I bought in black so that didn't matter. UPDATE: I bought the Knit Dress in sleeveless and dark blue because I loved my first one so much! The material is different which is a bummer because that was my favorite part of the black bell sleeved dress! It is much thicker and in my opinion looks cheap :-( - still a good Knit Dress for the price!I gave this 5 stars although I'm returning it because of two reasons; it's exactly as described and a beautiful green, and it's made well, soft and a nice material.
I'm returning it because it is not a good choice for petite girls, unless you're looking for something very over sized. I'm 5'0" and about 103 lbs currently. The length of this Knit Dress is my biggest hangup with it. It hits below my knees and therefore truncates my body even more. I look like I'm swimming in it or a little kid trying on my mommy's dress. It's so cute in theory and cute on taller women who can fill it out better but just doesn't look great on us petite ladies. With that said, you could get it hemmed and/or taken in on the sides and it would be just adorable.
