Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlotte Petite spaghetti-strap dress in polka dot
OH MY GOODNESS -- A PERFECT DRESS!!
I ordered two sizes - Petite 0 and Petite 2, one will be sent back. I ordered two different sizes because the reviews on the regular size dress said it runs large. **It does run slightly large ** The Petite 0 arrived & I am still waiting for Petite 2. Anyways, for reference I'm 5'4, 32B, 24 waist, 35 hip). The Petite 0 fits perfect!! The dress hits just below knee on me, the spaghetti straps are adjustable, the waist fits well and has elastic, the pleats lay flat, does not flare out. It is now one of my favorite JCrew dresses. It reminds me of the old dresses JCrew used to make - beautiful and timeless. JCrew, please make more of these dresses in more colors and patterns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tati A must for fans of polka-dots!
My stats, for reference: 4'11", 36B, 29" waist, broad shoulders.
My most common fit: tops in 4P, XS or PS, coats & blazers in 4P, pants/jeans in 25P or 26P, 4P in sheath dresses.
This dress caught my eye right away so I tried it on in-store in Regular, 2. Top fit perfectly, but length would need about 10 inches lopped off, and it would affect the cut of the dress. After reviewing measurements with Customer Service, I saw that 4P was the closest match to a Regular 2 in chest circumference. Based on my sizes above, I would say this item runs TTS.*
Straps are adjustable, so they allow for a customized fit up top. The waist has a neatly contained, built-in elastic that allows for further shaping. Top part of the skirt is pleated down, in a way that contours the body nicely, and also allows for the rest of the skirt to flow. Very flattering fit and good silk!
So, so pleased with this dress!
*Skirt ends 1.5 inches below my knee.
