Rated 2 out of 5 by 1989 A Bit Misleading . . .
The picture is misleading for several reasons. First, the picture lends the impression that the width of straps are at least 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide, but in reality, the straps are quite narrow (between 1/2 and 3/4 quarters of an inch wide). Second, the length of the dress is shorter than shown in the picture and lastly, unlike the picture which shows the skirt draping "lean" on the model, the skirt flares out. Other grievances include thin material, very deep v-neckline and sizing (dress runs large).

Rated 3 out of 5 by SmileBadge Inaccurate pics-----Straps are super thin
Inaccurate picture on website. Actual Straps are super thin 5/8 inches and have only 5 stripes (3 blues and 2 whites). And on web picture, 13 strips (6 blues and 7 whites) and it must be 1 3/4 inches at least.
Too bad that they changed it at manufacturing time. They are too thin and too strappy to be cross back. But it looks cute as halter neck (with little gapping on chest) Also, it’s a lot shorter, barely hits bottom of my knee caps. I’m only 5’5. Size XXS has length of 26 inches from the waist.
I didn’t mind the thin and sheer material, and loved cotton lining. However, they didn’t line it all the way to the top of front. That’s why you see the sweet heart line in the chest; and it bothers me.
Fit true to the size; my usual size XXS fits great. More of high waisted, and a lot more of A-line. I didn’t think it was too deep of V-neck. Overall it’s not a bad dress but not worth full price....

I was excited about this dress as looks great in the picture. Unfortunately, not in person.
First of all, it is not as long as in picture, covers knees, but doesn't go that much further past them and I am thinking that the models are taller than I am, 5.8" and a size 4, so what happened, why is the dress so long on them?
I had purchased a size small.
It is also not that form fitting on top (I am thinking they fastened it at the back for the pictures) and doesn't fall straight down as in picture, it is a bit puffy on the sides. That being said if you are on the shorter side with a larger chest, could potentially work.
I also tried the same dress but in the other color thinking maybe it's a one off fail, but fit was the same unfortunately.
Needless to say returning the dresses.

I finally found a dress! Lots of weddings this summer and I've been having a lot of trouble finding a dress that fits. I'm a size 2, but I'm 5'8 with a long waist so dresses always hit me in the ribcage and make me look much wider than I am. Not the case with this dress because of the three button holes for a adjusting the straps. Not super bra friendly, but it's lined so going bra-less shouldn't be too much of a problem. It's really much cuter in person, I was window shopping online yesterday and wouldn't have even considered this until I saw it hanging in the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by justvisiting 1 Size Down-Easy Cotton Dress For Hot Humid Summer
Fabric Dress & Lining: 100% Cotton
My stats: 5'-7", 32c, 28 denim & this dress ends just below knees.
I tried regular dress size XS & one size down, XXS. I'm keeping XXS because it's the size that fits my bust/rib area. If you're skinny but bustier & need your reg size, the only diff. between the two sizes for me was from elastic band to hem; there's more fabric, a tad more length and a-line was less noticeable since there is more fabric. I don't care for a-line's that are extreme, & find a-line of this dress acceptable. It looks more like the modeled image in size XXS. I can go w/o a bra at home because of the lining & fit, but am too modest to go w/o anywhere else.
-lining is as loose as dress, not slimmer like the Ratti Happy Cat Sundress
-button w/three hole adj. options on back cross-straps
-v-neck not too deep
This is exactly the comfortable dress you want to wear on a hot, humid day!
