Rated 2 out of 5 by lisanyc Big on top, tight in the middle
It pains me to write two negative reviews of the last two dresses that I purchased/tried on at Jcrew. The dress looks super cute online. But, the shape just didn't work for me. I am 5'4, 125 (size 27 jean) and the 6 was tight around the waist and the top was huge (button on the top by the placket opening kept opening). What you also don't see from this photo is that there is a panel in the middle by the waist (between the waist and thigh) which makes it tighter and unflattering in a weird place. Not my best look. I'd also like to ask, what is going on with sizing? Last dress I tried was a 4 and too big. This 6 was too tight. Can we get some consistency here?

I actually love this dress! I just read the other woman's review and completely disagreed. I think everyone's weight is distributed differently and there are so many different body types. I'm 5'3", 125 pounds, a size 4 in J.Crew dresses & skirts and usually a size 2 or XS in their tops. On me, the shape is extremely flattering, the waist isn't remotely tight, the top isn't too large at all, it is the perfect length for work (not too short or too long), and the flutter sleeves add a nice feminine touch (I had been worried about the sleeves when I ordered the dress online). I wish this dress came in additional pretty spring and summer colors because I would have purchased one of those, but I liked this print better than the options for the eyelet version.

Purchased this dress for a wedding. I really wanted something with sleeves, so I wouldn't need an extra layer for warmth or coverage. I got so many compliments on it. I am tall 5'8" and very curvy - I am usually a 14 at JCrew. This dress shows that you have a figure, but doesn't cling to any of it. The sleeves flutter a little, so are pretty without being too full. Also, I purchased the "black" color which is a very soft white/black ikat and it is a pretty print without being too bold. All in all a total winner!

I've tried on a lot of J. Crew dresses in the last few years and they're usually too tight in the waist if the dress fits on top, or too big on the bottom if I size up to get the waist to fit. Finally here is a dress that fits. Length is perfect, just above the knee on me (5'4"). Fabric is excellent. I bought the larger of my two J. Crew dress sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madz flattering and versatile dress
This dress is so flattering and I love the print. I was worried about the sleeves but they are not too full and suit the style of the dress. I love that I will be able to wear this dress to go out for dinner on a Saturday night or to a wedding. It's very versatile. It has been a while since I bought a great J Crew dress. Keep them coming please J Crew!
