This is more a warning review! I ordered this dress originally in a large after reading other reviews as I am 5'9" and 150lbs but when I received the dress it had at least 2 extra inches in the waist. Other than the size I LOVED the dress; the cotton felt great and the shape was wonderful (posted picture of original dress). I have no idea how to sew so I decided to send it back and reorder the same dress in a medium. When it arrived I was so excited but as soon as I opened it I felt it was NOT the same dress. The second dress was mostly a polyester material and so thin you could see my tattoo on my stomach through the material and the sewing was terrible and uneven. I contacted the seller multiple times and he wouldn't tell me why the material was wrong. Finally after reading a little further I missed a warning in the description that states to MAKE sure you're buying from GK Queen as others are imitation and lower quality. I went backed and looked and sure enough the second time I bought was from some Aikan. So frustrated right now I'm just giving up on the dress as I've had nothing but bad luck with it.
I followed the size chart, and ordered based on my measurements, and I'm a curvy girl. It fit perfectly. I'm 5'1", so it hits me right below the knees. I didn't have any of the fit issues that I've seen in other reviews. You don't really need the petticoat, but it hangs sort of sad if you don't wear one. I put a red ribbon belt on it instead of the black one that came with it. I thought it was cuter.
I ordered this dress in the gray color, and it looks exactly as pictured. As far as sizing goes, I am always paranoid about clothing on Amazon running on the small side, so I ordered the 2XL. Normally I would wear a size 10/12 in a dress (or Large or X Large depends on the brand). I am 5'7, weigh 170lbs, 36-38 C bust. This dress fits in the size I bought it is slightly big. I could have went with an XL, but it isn't ill-fitting in any way on me. I would say go with your regular size, or up one size if you aren't sure. The fabric is similar to a tshirt material, but a bit thicker. It is 95% cotton, 5% spandex so it does offer some stretch. The material is soft and not itchy. It is not see-thru at all. The fabric lays nicely when you have it on. The wrap style on the top covers nicely so if you are looking for something that will have a more modest look, this dress would be perfect, as you can see in my photo it comes down almost to my knees and covers the bust area without gaping. You could dress this up by adding some accessories and jewelry or dress it down and wear with sandals or flats. This dress is very versatile. As far as quality, the dress is sewn together nicely, no loose threads, seams are straight and seem secure. Overall, very satisfied with this dress, it's cute and well made and will be handy for many occasions. Sample was provided for product evaluation/reviewing purposes.
This is my THIRD "color" of this dress this summer. I have worn all three to weddings and strangers were stopping me to compliment me on my dress. Classy, fun and timeless. Don't skip the petticoat and you'll bring down the house!
This dress is adorable. The material is nice and the dress fits very comfortably. I love the retro style! I feel comfortable wearing this to the office or for more casual occasions. It's very versatile. I'm 5'4" and 135lbs and the medium fits perfectly!
This dress is comfortable, has good coverage, and is a GREAT breastfeeding dress. Pulls down very easily, and doesn't get stretched out. I've had it for three weeks now and it's definitely already a staple. The negative about it is it is 95% Rayon, 5% Spandex, so the fabric feels a little synthetic and it shows spots (if you spill anything on it) very easily. But it's still very comfortable, feels, nice, and is a great value for the price! I also like that I can wear it casually, or use it to dress up a little. Very versatile. I'm 5'10 and weigh 190 and bought a large. I also love the length - it falls just above the knee on me.
