Rated 5 out of 5 by GrendelsMom Just plain awesome...
Just picked this up at my local J. Crew, and it's a winner! The print is vibrant but not overwhelming, and the fit is perfect. The secret is the waistband: it's elasticized in the back, which gives a more comfortable, forgiving fit through the torso. The skirt, too, is very flattering. I normally shy away from pleats, but these lie flat, creating a nice, lean silhouette from head to toe. If you're between sizes, opt for the smaller one. I generally fall between a 2 and 4--I'm 5'8", 32B, and 130 lbs--and found the 2 looked better on me.

It's a gorgeous fit! So feminine that I fell in love instantly.The print is unique and so wearable. I feel it runs a bit large in the bust area. I sized down. I love the drop waist skirt and love the length too, very elegant. It's perfect for now, but I am already envisioning wearing in the fall. Thanks J Crew for getting back to what is beautiful and timeless, as well as quality and affordability! A steal for a silk dress.

It is really beautiful. The dress reminds me of Italian seaside towns. You will feel like gorgeous actresses from the old Italian movies. It is made of beautiful fabric, silk and I think it will grab everyone's attention when you walk on the street. The size fits very well, comfortable. I am very petite-5'1-5'2, but the length of the dress works even though it is long.
Just love love love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kmholland425 Perfect dress
I can wear anything from a 00 to a 4 in J.Crew depending on the cut of the dress, so I was disappointed when my local store didn't have this dress to try on. I ended up ordering a 0, and it fits perfectly. The skirt is flattering and doesn't add any extra volume to my hips. The print is vibrant but not loud. So flattering! For reference, I am 5'3, 118 lbs., 25/26 waist, 32DD. I have a hard time finding dresses that fit both in the bust and hips, and this hit the mark thanks to the blouson top and elastic waist. Buy this. You won't regret.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rmc2016 Cute but fit slightly different from Blue version
I have the blue polka dot version and love the fit so wanted to get it in another color. The brushstroke version is different material (dressier than blue) and isn't as flattering as the blue version. The pleats stick out slightly vs the blue version which lies completely flat. Sizing was the same. Still a great dress just wish fabric and fit was the same as blue polka dot version.
